Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) is definitely winning our hearts all over again.

We discovered how precious Millie Bobby Brown is with her impeccable performance as “Eleven.”

All of the four kids are probably our geek selves when we were younger.


Seriously, #SquadGoals.


2. The 80s theme

From the logo and font, opening title, and wardrobe, the aesthetic of the series gives off that nostalgic 80s vibe.


3. The music

The opening score, heck, the entire soundtrack of the series makes us want to create our own mixtape.


4. The pop culture references

Star Wars, E.T, Alien, The Goonies, etc.


5. When Chief Hopper set the record straight on what mornings are for:

6. It taught us the meaning of friendship

“A friend is someone that you’d do anything for.”

7. We learned a helpful and timely trick now that Christmas is only a few months away

When in doubt, ask the Christmas lights. Remember, blink once for YES and twice for NO.


It’s like Christmas lights are the new Magic 8 Ball!


8. We found a new “hobby”

Brace yourselves for children trick or treating… or “monster hunting” this coming Halloween.


9. How this:

Reminded us of this:

Admit it, it made you want to play Dungeons and Dragons too.


10. The suspense and all that Science

via Giphy

Strange things are happening and it’s crazy, terrifying, but somehow have scientific explanations.


It makes us curious about LOTS of things.

Dustin is us after we finished an episode.


11. Every episode we ask ourselves, “Should I stay or should I go now?”

via Netflix

Because once you start watching it, there’s no stopping.

And just like how the Demogorgon craves for its next victim, we also crave for Season 2!

Okay, and Eggos too.
