Netflix’s top story tonight: Barb has disappeared and Eleven has stolen “unprecedented amounts” of Eggo waffles.
A YouTube video on Netflix’s channel, released on Halloween, shows some archival footage from “Minute by Minute,” a local news show from fictional TV station WIYZ. The report is presented by real-life news anchor Brenda Woods and breaks the news of Barb’s disappearance.
“Barbara Holland, a student at Hawkins High, known as Barb to her friends, was last seen at Steve Harrington’s home just a few days ago with a number of other Hawkins-area teens,” Woods says.
She reports that Barb’s friends described her as “loyal to a fault,” and as “the kind of girl who notices if you’re wearing a new bra.”
Woods throws in some humor when describing that Barb was last seen wearing “a pink blouse, green pants, blue puffer jacket, and an over-sized pair of absolutely fantastic glasses.”
In other news, “Minute by Minute” also reports a shoplifting from local grocery store Bradley’s Big Buy. We see security footage of “vagrant juvenile” Eleven grabbing Eggo waffle boxes, before Woods ends the show and disappears as the “Stranger Things” logo and theme music appear in her place.
Season 2 of “Stranger Things” is set to premiere on Netflix in 2017, and the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, revealed that almost the entire cast from the first season will return to Hawkins, Indiana.
