11 mistakes

Chapter Nine: The Gate - S2-E9

New this week Factual error: The military convoy has Desert Tan HMMWVs (Humvees). The Army didn't take delivery of the first ones until 1985 and they certainly were not painted Desert Tan until 1991 in the Gulf War.

Chapter One: MADMAX - S2-E1

New this month Revealing mistake: When Bob and Joyce have lunch, Bob pops open a can of soda (which is period appropriate). The scene cuts to Joyce, then back to Bob. It is clear from how he is holding the can, and how he pretends to drink from it, that his newly opened soda is actually empty.

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

New this month Factual error: When Steve and Nancy are making out, the intro to "A Hazy Shade of Winter" by The Bangles plays. While the original version of the song was released by folk-pop duo Simon and Garfunkel was released in 1968, the version heard here was released in 1986, 3 years after the scene takes place.

Chapter Three: The Pollywog - S2-E3

New this month Continuity mistake: When Dart is found in the bathroom cubicle a walkie talkie is dropped when the boy runs away, but shortly after when his friends arrive the walkie talkie is gone.

Add time

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

New this month Continuity mistake: 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.

Chapter Eight: The Upside Down - S1-E8

Factual error: When Nancy shoots the creature the second time, she fires at least 8 shots from a 6-shot revolver without reloading. And that's assuming she reloaded after firing 3 shots at the creature the first time, even though the situation made it seem unlikely.

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

Factual error: When Chief Hopper and his fellow patrolman are standing over the lake, Hopper has a radio on his belt. The radio is a modern Motorola walkie talkie and at least a decade newer than it should be.
