Trivia

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 »

Goofs

The radio used by Chief Hopper was either a Motorola HT1000 or MT2000 series. Both came out around the late '90s. To be period accurate they would have used a model like MT1000. See more »

Another one bites the dust
16 July 2019 | by dameterpeterSee all my reviews

Season 1 is a declaration of love to the 80ties ans films like critters, gremlins, goonies and some others. They picked up the in hindsight trashy charm of those in a perfect way. Season 2 was still good, but i guess tv-series routine kicked in and with season 3 it became somewhat generic. It takes half the season episodes to pick up speed, the subplots are too equally big and too disjointed from each other, yet fail to generate the necessary tension, because when you have more then one storyline you have to let the viewer know more about the antagonist side or you get lost. Often out of proportion aimless bantering are not helpful either to develop the story, they are just annoying. Some scenes are superfluous. Basically you are watching half the season without really knowing what you are watching exactly. Failing to articulate the plot they fail the suspension. Hopefully they will do a better job on the final season.
