Did You Know?
When Joyce (Winona Ryder
) goes looking for Will (Noah Schnapp
) at Castle Byers in the first episode and has a flashback, the password to get in is 'Radagast'. This refers to one of the five wizards (Gandalf the Gray, Saruman the White, Alatar and Pallando the two blue wizards, and Radagast the Brown) in Lord of the Rings, and is one of many references to the books throughout the series. Only Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast appear in the movies. See more
During a number of episodes, people are seen 'interrupting' someone talking on a two way radio or CB - that is, one person is talking/transmitting, and another person transmits to interrupt them, and then the other person hears this interruption and stops transmitting. This was done a few times on the kid's CB radios, and on the radios used by the police. Those radios - the CB and the police radios of the era from the show - don't work like that. If you are transmitting, and someone else transmits, you will not hear them. See more
