Storyline

The FBI follow-up when a Nazi war criminal imprisoned in Munich claims to know the cause of the blackout. He also knows Agent Mark Benford by name. Benford and Agent Janis Hawk travel to Munich to interview the man and while he is prepared to share what he knows, he has only one requirement: that he be set free and allowed to return to the United States where he once lived. His information does lead the Agents to realize something very important about the blackout. Having seen his daughter alive in his future vision, Mark's friend Aaron Stark tries to get his ex-wife's agreement to exhume her remains and have further DNA testing to confirm if it's really their daughter. Agent Demetri Noh's fiancée manages to return from Seattle now that flights have been re-instated but he doesn't tell her about his lack of a future vision. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The plot of 137 Sekunden revolves around Mark Benford making a deal to release a Nazi war criminal who claims to have knowledge about the cause of the blackouts. Mark and Janis are depicted as agonizing about the possibility of releasing a Nazi based on claims which turn out to be false. However, in American law, and presumably in German law as well, such deals are predicated on the criminal actually providing the information they claim to have. Any criminal who tries to double cross the authorities will quickly find their agreement revoked. See more »

Quotes

Agent Mark Benford: Then you've got a problem... because that's what faith is.

Flash Forwarded-This Episode 120 Tedious Minutes **
9 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously, the story goes on but becomes more and more zanier with each episode.

This week around, we are told that an old Nazi, serving a prison sentence in Munich, knows why the blackout occurred. Our agent, Joe Fiennes, flies to Munich only to find out that the old crone wants his freedom before he lets on. When this is done, we're told about the world letters in Hebrew coming to the number 137-the number of seconds the blackout lasted. When the old guy is given his freedom, he tells of many crows dying during the blackout. Same thing happened in 1991 in southern Somalia. So what?

The story is already becoming tedious. Our agent, who will take 3 bullets next March, is supposed to be married in April, according to his girlfriend's account. He wants to push the marriage up now. At this rate, am wondering if the series will last by March or April. Then there's the guy who had his daughter's remained exhumed. Yes, she did die in Afghanistan for her country. Who's dying for this show?

There may be plenty of trouble ahead-plot included.
