Trivia

Interestingly, as this show has many homages and Easter eggs involving Stephen King, Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) costars in It (2017), which is a Stephen King novel. See more »

Goofs

Indiana license plates should display a single digit or double digit at the begging on the number followed by a smaller letter and then up to four numbers after. The first digit(s) identify the county. So a plate would not start with 3X. See more »

A masterpiece
16 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the most magical things I have ever had the fortune of viewing. I won't go into details about the narrative, which is build on classic sci-fi and horror concepts and it works. But what really makes this show excel is the little things. The casting is amazing - every single character, regardless of how small the part is, feels like a complete character, and the main cast delivers some powerful stuff all throughout the series. The production is spot on in it's portrayal of a small town in the 80's, and I have to assume that it is in part based on the creators own experiences and childhood, because everything feels real.

The only thing that bothered me throughout the entire show was the incompetence of the government entities. I know and understand that this is a popular portrayal of the government in these types of stories and especially in the US is this a common sentiment. But it simply didn't seem believable that they would make some of the choices they did. Doesn't take a genius to see that they are doing a crummy job. But this is all in all a negligible detail, as it keeps the story moving.
