The First Eight Minutes of Stranger Things

This. Is. Perfect.

Even though these are the first 8 minutes of the series, I felt like it was seasons into the show—I identified with the characters that much and that quickly. It feels like a mashup of Goonies, X-Files, and even a little Twin Peaks.

The score is fantastic. It’s loud and obvious and in your face but it never pulls you out of what’s happening on screen. The whole thing watches like a love-letter to a very specific decade rather than a director (like JJ’s homage to Spielberg).

I can’t wait to marathon this.
