Trivia

The opening shows the patient driving a dragster, however it is no a top fuel car but a Top Alcohol dragster, and would not have achieved the time and speed that is shown after the race ends. E/T was mid 4.5 at 327mph , and the typical times are in the 5 seconds at 270mph. This is a huge difference in drag racing. See more »

Loved the Episode
13 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I disagree with the previous comments; I thought this episode was one of the best. It may lack a lot of action, but this is not an action series. I laughed out load several times and anxiously awaited the next episode to see how things turned out in some of the sub plots. Admittedly, I found the CIA story more engaging than the race car driver story, but mainly because Hugh Laurie figured more prominently in that one and I LOVE Hugh Laurie! As to the other doctors on the show having "cameos" in this episode - not everyone gets full air play every episode in virtually any show - that's just the way things are - but they all get their turn in the limelight eventually and it all comes out pretty evenly in the end, just maybe not this particular episode. I thought the writers dd their usual excellent job on this episode - as did the cast and crew.
