Chapter Five: The Flea and the Acrobat - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Right after Lucas gets up after 11 knocks him into the wall, as he storms off Dustin grabs Mike to keep him from chasing after Lucas and says "Finn, let him go". He called him by the actor's real name instead of his character's name. (00:44:35)


Correction: Dustin says, "Let him go... Man, let him go."

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: When Hopper's daughter is dying, the staff says that the pulse oximeter is dropping. Pulse oximeters were not commercialized until 1981/1983 and not in widespread use until at least the mid 1980's.


Correction: The reason you wrote 1981/1983 is because 2 different companies developed them. Biox first developed them in 1981 and expanded their marketing in 1982. Just because something isn't widespread doesn't mean it's not available or in use at a local hospital, especially for a fictional town. The first season begins in November 1983, so after the pulse oximeters were commercially available.


Chapter Two: The Weirdo on Maple Street - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Nancy wakes up after sleeping with Steve (after Barb's death) outside the window alludes to it being morning/daytime. When Nancy steps outside we see that it is still night out.

Correction: When Barb is sitting on the diving board as well as the 'party' scene, the audience can see that the pool is brightly lit up with bright lights. You may have mistaken the lights to be sunlight.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Some of the cars in the background have a raised brake light. The third brake light in cars was added in 1986.

Correction: Third brake lights were made a legal requirement in cars in 1986, however they were found in some cars prior.
