Watch the Kids of Stranger Things Try to Reminisce About the '80s

I mean, none of them were actually born to experience it, of course. But given Stranger Things’ pitch-perfect recreation of the 1980s aesthetic, it’s still cute to see these young actors enthusiastically champion the decade the show so clearly reveres.

The Q&A, which aired lived through Facebook yesterday, sees Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Noah Schnapp (Will), Millie Brown (Eleven), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) attempt to answer a batch of ‘80s-themed trivia questions—understandably poorly—before discussing how they prepared for their roles by immersing themselves in classic films and shows from the period.

If you still can’t get enough of Stranger Things—especially after that season two teaser yesterday—this is a good, cathartic release of all that fandom joy.
