Trivia

The dinner scene with Nancy, Steve, and Barb's parents is the last time Nancy wears her gold necklace, a main feature of her wardrobe in season 1. See more »

Goofs

The original Dig Dug High Score table only allows three initials, yet this one has six: "MADMAX, DUSTIN, LUCAS, JKRACH). The 'RND' (round) column is also missing.

Also, all of the arcade games are missing their Indiana Coin-Operated Amusement Tax Licenses stickers, which should have been stuck to the marquee or glass bezel. See more »

The Beginning of a New Season
1 January 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Near the Halloween, Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Will find that Dustin´s score in an Arcade game has been beaten by someone with the nickname MadMax. They believe the newcomer in school Maxine is the player. Hopper investigates what has happened to pumpkins that have been poisoned and the owner blames his neighbor. Will has visions from the Upside Down and he goes with Joyce and Hopper to a clinic for medical examination.

"Chapter One: MADMAX" is the weak beginning of a new season of "Stranger Things". So far, nothing is happening but Will´s visions and the intriguing appearance of El in the end of the episode. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Chapter One: MADMAX"
