Storyline

Sam is in 1973. Period. 2008 only exists as flashes of Sam's memory, assisted by a mysterious robot. A suspect in a series of deadly armed robberies of check cashing stores, Trent, is picked up but let loose for lack of evidence. Trent then attempts another robbery, gets killed by Hunt, but not before Trent shoots June the precinct secretary, at the scene. When a witness states that Trent was escorted by uniformed police going into the store being robbed, it becomes a corruption issue. It turns out June was connected to Trent, and this is how the case gets solved. Written by Dave Goldhirsch

Goofs

"Grease" tickets held by Annie in 1973 are of the 21st century computerized kind, not the preprinted kind used in 1973. However, any anachronisms could simply be due to the fact that Sam may be merely imagining 1973 while comatose. See more »
