Did You Know?


In season 1, the first man to enter the upside down is clad in a full biohazard suit and is named Shepherd. This is an obvious nod to the cult 80s movie C.H.U.D. (1984), where Daniel Stern plays the protagonist Shepherd. The biohazard suits are also almost identical to the ones worn by the government scientists in CHUD. See more »


In reference to a previously listed goof, Lucas was referring to John Carpenter's "The Thing"(1982) being a remake of "The Thing from Another World"(1951) not the 2011 remake. Whether it stinks or not is irrelevant. Season 1 takes place in 1983 and season 3 takes place in 1985. See more »

A review for Stranger Things
2 September 2020 | by rashidihooman-88314See all my reviews

The main thing that doesn't make stranger things as a masterpiece or sth like this,is that it can't keep its plot refreshed as it goes on.I mean,in each season,first we have a nice time,then sth bad happens,then teenage guys go and fix it.it has becoming so frequentative.but in the other hand,the most of the characters are so lovely.I loved El and Will in season 1 and two, Robin and Hopper in Season 3.Altogether,this series is going to be one of your favorites if you like Sci-fic and a bit scary movies.Hope this review help you.
