Goofs

The 17th root of 9,355,126,606 is 3.8595114 so the next-greatest prime number is 5. If this was the actual problem, then Agnes was correct. The error was Elwood saying "nine trillion", when it was actually "nine billion" See more »

Wally as a Star!
17 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a true nerd. He has the skills to run a huge computer (of the Univac era). He loves a young woman who works in his building, but he is so darned boring and clumsy, he strikes out over and over. Unfortunately, when he asks his big computer for some help, it spouts out useless, destructive advice. It is manipulating him! There is a sort of charm. It features Wally Cox (Underdog) who made a career of playing bookish little milquetoasts. He does develop a relationship in this episode, but it's not with the girl of his dreams. His frantic shortsightedness is what the episode features. It works to a point. The rest is terribly dated and sort of lacking.
