Did You Know?
When Jim West enters the Eco Amusement Park, there is music playing on an old-fashioned-looking phonograph (complete with a large, cornucopia-shaped speaker), and West turns it off as if he were familiar with its operation. Other dialogue places this episode four years after the death of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico (which occurred in 1867) -- that is, in 1871 -- yet Thomas Edison didn't invent the phonograph until 1877, or six years after this episode is set.
