Trivia

The official poster for the series was created by Kyle Lambert. It was done in an art style inspired by acclaimed poster/album artwork artist Drew Struzan, who has created official posters for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Back to the Future (1985), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), and several others.

Goofs

The US flag patches worn by the police officers are incorrect. On the patches, the field of stars has too many stripes to the right of it and not enough stripes underneath. On the actual flag, the field "sits" on the fourth white stripe from the top. On the patches, it "sits" on the red stripe below it, the fifth red stripe.

CORRECTION: It's a myth that it's a "Federal offence" to impersonate a member of law enforcement by wearing an actual uniform in a movie or TV show. (It is a state offense to impersonate a police officer.) Accurate uniforms are allowed, but most production companies either don't bother to get them right, or don't work with the local LE agency and get their permission, and thus come up with something close but not quite right.

Netflix Nails it again.
15 July 2016 | by From_the_FutureSee all my reviews

It can hook you immediately, everything seems fitting , the setting , the acting , the direction. Just as it should be. Bringing out the perfect blend of 1980s nostalgia. It gives mixture of taste of big 80's movies.

You immediately get hooked with the story , which is amazing because it takes time for me to get invested in a story.

I have been a fan of David Harbour Since the Newsroom , and he is just amazing.

You're scared , Intrigued , you're completely invested. With perfect setting.

I am really looking forward to where this goes from here on in.
