    • Thanks for the clarification. Not sure why the Russian portal wasn't open, or who closed it in the first place, or if it was even open to begin with for that matter, because El only closed the Hawkins portal at the end of season two, which was around October 1984. Maybe we'll get the answers later in season three.

    • I want Dustin's Camp Know Where t-shirt.

      [...] an actual mall on the outskirts of Atlanta that was completely re-done from the inside by the Stranger Things team. They did a great job!

      The work of the props department has been incredible in the past, and still is. On top of all those shirts and the mall with all their properly 80's-dressed extras, in the first episode I especially noticed:

      > Soviet-style gas masks very similar to those seen in many Chernobyl photos. I didn't immediately make the connection that the first scene did not take place in Hawkins - but when I saw those gas masks, I knew that we weren't currently in the US.

      > A can of "New Coke" - because, obviously that debacle needed to be referenced at some point. :)

      > Especially Mrs. Wheeler being the most stereotypically 80's-styled person I've seen in... well... the last 30 years. :D
