When Mike answers the walkie-talkie to Hopper, Hans Holzer's book Great American Ghost Stories can be seen on the shelf (although it wasn't actually published until 1990). See more »


While the group is attempting to create a sensory-deprivation chamber, they dissolved 1500 pounds of salt into a pool of the time period. To test the specific gravity of the salted water, they see how well an egg floats. During the first test, the egg sinks. The second test, the egg floats with a large portion sitting above the water line. Were this a real egg, it would be impossible to float an egg that high on top of the water. But as the egg turns on the water, the hole the crew used to remove the insides of the egg can be seen.

Additionally, the pool holds roughly 100 gallons, or 800 pounds, of water (if the pool is 8 feet in diameter and the water is 2 feet deep). Even under boiling conditions, it would be impossible to dissolve much more than about 320 pounds of salt. See more »

Strange or not, things are amping right up
12 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll say this: of the several cliffhanger endings so far this season, 'Chapter 7' has the infuriating one. You know the kind, when you're mad at seeing the end credits. And that's because of all the converging plot lines and ratcheting stakes going on here. The "E.T." homage is strongest with the opening bicycle chase, and that scene's forward movement never really lets up until the very end. Somewhere in all of this, Steve has time to lay the seeds of redemption, and I can't be the only one to hope Carol gets slapped in her hateful mouth.

Nor can I be the only one chomping at the bit for the finale. Man, with this show! 9/10
