Trivia

In an interview the Duffer Brothers said they were never big fans of the arcade game Dig Dug, but chose to feature it in the arcade scene because it nicely foreshadowed the tunnels coming from the Upside Down. See more »

Goofs

The Periodic Table in Mr. Clarke's classroom would not have existed in 1984. It lists many elements (Darmstadtium, Roentgenium, Livermorium, Copernicum, Flerovium) that were only discovered and named since that time, and it indicates proposed elements (Uuo, Uus, Uup, Uut) that had not been proposed yet.

Highly overrated
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

It only took one episode to see the show has already sold out. This season looks to have no vision over where the show is heading. Product placement is already rampant. This is IMO the most overrated show/movie of the last 10 years other than Orange is the New Black. A bunch of references to the 80's via ET, Goonies, and a Ford Pinto isn't enough to sustain this show. By the end of this season I'll be fed up and look elsewhere for content. Reminds me of Bloodlines a bit....a promising beginning only to fizzle out quickly.
