Did You Know?

Goofs

In the flashback sequences that are supposedly memories of Buck, Wilma and Twiki, there are several examples of scenes in which the person remembering the sequence was not present. For example, in Wilma's recollection of certain events from "Return of the Fighting 69th", one of the shots is of a man warning the gunrunners that the next bomb will hit. Wilma wasn't in that room when he said that. See more »

One of the worst episodes of the series, if not THE worst.
29 November 2007 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Buck, Wilma, Dr. Huer and Twiki attempt to solve the riddle presented to them by a strange object that mysteriously appears in Huer's office. Taking it in turns, they use a mind probe device to search their memories for clues that may help them discover the meaning of the riddle and the identity of whoever sent it.

Only 16 episodes into the first season, and it's one of those awful 'clip shows' which consists mainly of flashbacks from earlier adventures. If, like me, you have recently watched these shows (I'm working my way through them all on DVD), the result is extremely tedious. And to rub salt in the wound, the writers of this awful episode not only bring back one of the most annoying characters to ever inhabit the 25th century—chubby cheeked Hieronymous Fox—but also have the nerve to alter the history of the show, by stating that two villains that were killed in previous episodes are, in fact, still alive.

Wilma looks sexy (as always) in a burgundy Spandex outfit, but otherwise this episode is completely worthless.
