Goofs

The flintlock muskets - historically accurate for 1836 - don't have a fiery discharge from the pan, necessary to ignite the powder charge in the barrel, probably for filming-safety reasons. See more »

The Alamo: Then And Now
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kelly Reno, the kid star of "The Black Stallion," finds himself in a really puzzling predicament. One minute he's helping Davy Crockett and the boys defend the Alamo and the next minute he's zoomed ahead in time to modern-day San Antonio. Then - in a unique twist on a "time travel story" - we discover "Jobe" (Reno) is in both time "zones" at the same time.

He has to deliver this message from Crockett but then winds up trying to do so in modern times, on a bus and other crazy things. This is a very bizarre story.

It's a fish-out-of-water story. Imagine a kid from the Alamo days suddenly in a big city watching some guy "break dance" on sidewalk! Looking at Jobe's coonskin cap, the guy says, "Hey, man, I dig your funky cap!"

Reno mainly just stares at everything in disbelief, which I guess we would do, too. I might today if some dude, like the break dancer asked me, "I'm a lean, mean rappin' machine; ya know what I mean?" Then, the punk steals the cap.

Things get worse for the kid. A car nearly hits him so Jobe fires at the car. Now the police are after him.

Can Jobe get his message to General Lefferts, when it's years past the real-time event. Can he get back to the Alamo? Since everyone died there, would be best if he's stuck in time and never gets back there? Will that happen? The answer to these questions are seen in the last half of this episode. I won't say any more than that. It's a good adventure story.
