When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.
Several characters in this show have names that are nods to famous actors or directors who were very successful in the 80s. Some examples: Hopper, Dustin, Lucas, Steve (a possible nod to Spielberg), Holly (like in Holly Hunter).
During a number of episodes, people are seen 'interrupting' someone talking on a two way radio or CB - that is, one person is talking/transmitting, and another person transmits to interrupt them, and then the other person hears this interruption and stops transmitting. This was done a few times on the kid's CB radios, and on the radios used by the police. Those radios - the CB and the police radios of the era from the show - don't work like that. If you are transmitting, and someone else transmits, you will not hear them.
The Stranger Things opening titles and fonts mimic the film grain and look of 1980's television series opening credits.
