Goofs

When talking about the 'War of the Worlds' radio broadcast in 1938 the lieutenant says, "My wife and I heard it come over the car radio. All we could think of was to get back home to see our children before the final attack." Assuming he had married at the age of 16 and had 2 kids by the time he was 18, he would have to be 87 in the show's 2007 setting. However, he was merely reading a survivors account of the events from that night, just as Vera mentions a survivor driving all night across the country in a towel to see his fiancée. See more »

Ages Off
24 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It just seemed to me that some of the characters' ages were off in this episode. First off, when they discover the woman's body by the well, Lilli says something to the effect of her being gone for about 50 years, however, the crime happened closer to 70 years prior. That said, some of those characters (Will Paige, man standing next to Audrey in the soup line) would be close to 100 years old. I know it would be difficult to find actors close to that age (or apparently, apply sufficient makeup to make them look that way), but I just found the entire episode very disconcerting because of that fact. Overall, I did enjoy the episode's content, though.
