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 »

Pretty much a waste of time.
22 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

During the Battle of the Alamo, a teen from the battle inexplicably comes to the present day but that idiot doesn't seem to comprehend that he's not in his own time any more. For the entire show, Jobe blunders about modern day San Antonio....and that's about it!

There is almost nothing of value to "Alamo Jobe". The plot was recycled from "The Twilight Zone" ("A Hundred Years Over the Rim") but lacked the ironic twist and fine acting. Additionally, the show lacked any real reason for the time travel...none. A waste of time and an episode with little reason to exist. Shows like this explain why "Amazing Stories" only lasted two seasons.
