An emergency is coming and no one knows how to stop it. Then Mr. Benedict sets up a test to recruit the perfect people to help him in his mission to stop it. 4 children are recruited and together go in an adventure to take down the emergency.

What a thrilling show, I loved it from the first second, as the kids get recruited in the most unusual way, then learn to work together being sent to the school and having to plan and plot from inside and stay safe so that they can stop the emergency. It’s so creative and fascinating.

So much happened in such a short time, I loved how everything unfolded, from who Benedict was, to who the children were and who they became to each other. What the children could actually do was insane and it progressed so nicely to uncover it all, each child was so unique but they worked so fantastically together.

We hear about the emergency right away but never really know what it is, so the build up, the slow answering of questions was incredible. I loved how hooked I was to the show, wanting to find out what the children were doing next. To find out what Mr. Curtain was doing next and what the children could do about it. I seriously loved following this wanderlust mystery.

The lead children were all incredible and worked so well together, I loved the differences in each child but that they worked as the perfect team. I loved that had to work harder to save each other from the brain sweeper. We learnt so much about them as it went along and they learnt so much about themselves as it went along too.

The mystery of the emergency is amazing and how they together took it down was incredible, half of what happened I didn’t see coming and it was so fun and filled with so many twists and turns. If you haven’t watched this yet I highly recommend it,nits so much fun and you’ll be gripped to it wanting to solve everything.
