You’ll reanalyze why everyone is going crazy over Barb? (Like why, though?)

She had like four lines. OK, she was a good friend, but come on.

There’s more time to ask the real questions: How did Will not die in the upside down? Is the monster actually dead? Why Eggos?

These are the questions that keep me up at night.

You’ll notice all of the homages to the ’80s films that inspired it 

With films such as “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial”, “Alien” and “The Goonies,” “Stranger Things” has so many references that it’s difficult to keep track! Don’t worry, here’s a guide to help you along!

So if you have some extra time left this summer, be sure to rewatch what might be the greatest Netflix show ever!
