1. The Cast
The cast of Stranger Things from the adults to kids are so on point!
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.
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:
Let’s drink coffee to that!
6. It taught us the meaning of friendship
“A friend is someone that you’d do anything for.”
And for Dustin, Friend > baby teeth.
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
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?”
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.
