“Stranger Things”: It’s the hottest thing on TV right now. It’s almost guaranteed that all of your friends will disappear for a day or two to binge this eight-episode Netflix series, and with Halloween coming up, it’s sure to keep growing in popularity. For those who haven’t watched the science-fiction hit yet, it follows the disappearance of 12-year-old Will and his family’s journey to get him back from supernatural forces, along with the help of a telekinetic girl with a buzz cut. There are plenty of monsters, teen romance and ‘80s vibes, so there’s basically something for everyone. If you haven’t watched it yet, a hurricane is coming and now is the ideal time. So grab a drink and follow along (spoiler-free, of course).
Take a sip when…
The kids ride their bikes
Every time “Should I Stay or Should I Go” plays
You (briefly) wish people still used walkie talkies
Take a shot when…
Eleven’s nose bleeds
The “mouth breathers” bully Mike
The Christmas lights in Will’s house light up
You’re not sure if you should be rooting for a romance between Nancy and Jonathan or not (because, you know, he did take creepy pics of her from the woods)
Finish your drink when...
There are flashbacks to Eleven’s past
You wonder about Barb
You’re screaming at Nancy not to crawl into that tree
