Surprise! Netflix has a new show coming out and it looks awesome

I hadn't heard of Netflix's upcoming Stranger Things until the trailer dropped this morning, which is saying a lot if you know how big a fan of TV, movies, and Netflix I am. The show follows the disappearance of a twelve-year-old boy from a small town in 1983, which stirs up some crazy stuff if the trailer is any indication. The tone and look of this show remind me of a darker Super 8, or as Bryan Bishop from The Verge put it, a show eavily under the influence of 80's entertainment icons Steven Spielberg & Stephen King. 

Check out the trailer below and let me know if this is one you'll be binge watching with me a short month from now when it drops on July 15.
