Trivia

As the kids are fleeing the monster and the armed Department of Energy personnel, Dustin carries the semi-conscious Eleven to safety, rather than Mike. This was due to Finn Wolfhard's inability to carry Millie Bobby Brown. The responsibility for transport fell to Gaten Matarazzo, despite having an injured ankle and knee on the same leg on the day of shooting. See more »

Low quality monster animation
17 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Overall, this TV series is very good but the season finale is a bit disappointing because of the low quality animation of the monster. When the monster was killing the government agents, special squads and also Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) killed the monster at the end they could have shown much better animation of that monster. It was also very silly scene when the boy wanted to kill the monster with the toy arbalest/catapult. Hopefully, season 2 will be much better than season 1 with better quality animation.
