The new Netflix original series, "Stranger Things," features the residents of a small town in Indiana and their search for a middle school boy who mysteriously goes missing. Winona Ryder plays the boy’s frantic mother, but the cast is otherwise a mash of character actors and children.
NPR's Eric Deggans speaks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about the show’s monumental popularity, Ryder’s performance and a minor character who's stolen the internet's heart.
