** Jonathan, in a flashback scene, has put Music/TheSmiths on a mix tape for Will. An American living in the sticks in 1983 would likely not have heard of them until they released their first album the following year, but more to the point, during the time of the flashback, they wouldn't even have released their first single. This is also true of his liking Joy Division. Their albums had been issued stateside, but they never made an impact outside of the UKm, making this more plausible.

** Music/{{Moby}}'s "When It's Cold I'd Like to Die" is used as background music for one scene in episode 8, although the album it's on wouldn't be released until early 1995.

* BittersweetEnding: Season 1. [[spoiler:The Demogorgon is dead, and it seemed to take Eleven with it, but she's implied to be alive since Hopper was bringing Eggos to a dead drop in the woods. Nancy chose Steve over Jonathan, but they're all friends. Will is safe, but the monster did something to him so that he's vomiting slugs and having visions of the Upside-Down. Hopper exposed the Hawkins "Department of Energy" research to the public, but appears to have made a deal with some MenInBlack. Also, Mike succeeded in saving Will, but Nancy was too late for Barbara.]]

** Played with in the final episode of Season 1, when [[spoiler:the monster opens its maw, and it ''looks'' like the wrist rocket (not a slingshot) throws it across the room. It was actually Eleven]].

Added DiffLines:

** The lab people think they've quieted Hopper by showing video of the night in question that shows all normal. However, Hopper knows something is wrong because the video has a clear sky but the actual night had a torrential downpour in the area.

* NoCommunitiesWereHarmed: While there is no Hawkins nor Roane County in Indiana, there ''is'' a Roane County, Tennessee, which is home to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Ridge_National_Laboratory Oak Ridge National Laboratory]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y-12_National_Security_Complex Y-12 National Security Complex]], two secluded government facilities that were integral parts of the top secret "Manhattan Project" that developed [[UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki the first atomic bombs]] during WorldWarTwo. Y-12 was a highly secure nuclear weapons production facility in the Reagan Era (and still is to some degree), and both Y-12 and ORNL were and are operated under the aegis of the Department of Energy. However, it's doubtful that psychic children and dimensional portals were ever on the agenda at either.

Added DiffLines:

** Knowing that something out of the ordinary is happening and everyone you try to talk to automatically doesn't believe you either because you're a distraught parent or "just a kid". Very insulting either way, especially when you're right.


Added DiffLines:

** Mike's parents seeing as their son was hiding his esper girlfriend in their basement for weeks without ever even noticing.
