Did You Know?


When West is trying to toss the rock in the bucket to get at the rope, Gordon mentions that it could make a good game that could be called "bucketball". In 1891, Dr. James Naismith of Springfield College in Springfield MA realized Artie's vision using a peach basket. Dr. Naismith's journal notes that he was concerned, as a number of similar games had been tried and had failed, making it possible that some form of it had been existence in the 1870s (that same journal mentions that Naismith's "Basket Ball" was influenced by a children's game called "Ducks on a Rock" which dates back to the Middle Ages).

"Samurai" is the term for a Japanese feudal warrior (the equivalent of a European knight), but the San Francisco Samurai's demeanor and speech reveals this melodramatic stock character to be Chinese. See more »

First episode i really liked of season 2!
14 September 2009 | by (Bodø, Norway) – See all my reviews

The first episode of season 2 i really liked. Because, i think it had a good story, twists and some fight scenes. I was surprised by all the twists and turns in this episode. This is the first episode i have seen that used so many twists. I like that.I hope as i continue to watch the rest of the episodes of season, that they are as great as this episode.

One thing i didn't like about this episode, was that some of the punches and kicks done by Robert Conrad didn't look so convincing. I have noticed that several times before in other episodes. What i mean by unconvincing, is that the punches Conrad deliver's didn't always seem like they connect to the bad guy. I noticed the same thing in lack of power in some punches and kicks he did. I personally think when they saw the footage, they should have done a new take so it look's better and convincing. But, it is too late now. Over 30 years ago since it was made. All in all, i recommend this episode.
