Did You Know?


When Amita holds up a bill of the D.B. Cooper currency to the others and flips it to show both faces, it's clear that it is fake in that it is printed like a coin where the top edge of the reverse is the bottom edge of the obverse. See more »

Not of one the best episodes.
3 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of this show. I like that the producers and writers expect the audience to learn something and do not insult their intelligence. This is not just an intelligent show the stories are well written and the characters are very well defined and interesting.

No nobody is perfect and this episode proves that. The plot is silly to and ridiculous to say the least. An old currency note ties the squad back into the DB Cooper hijacking. It really stretches creditability that out of all those bills that they could find the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The sideline plot of the two agent is useless, distracts and really serves no propose.

Charlie attempting to analyze a parachute jump with his old war toys is really stupid, silly and lack any creditability. Maybe that is the problem with this episode is the Charlie is really a side character and not featured that much.

Then they try and paint Cooper as a hero and get into a long analysis of Vietnam. The analysis is way to trite and cliché and gets down right dull. The reasons they give for cooper actions are way out there and stretch the fabric of logic and reality almost to the ripping point.

Henry Winkler is a great actor. Here he is cast as a retired tough guy. In order, for a plot to work it requires the audience to suspend disbelief. Henry Winkler simply is not believable as a tough guy. There is a part of the show where is character Judd Hirsch have a debate about Cooper and the 60's. Judd Hirsch is great as the old protester, he does a great acting job. Winkler tries to carry the argument for the other side and just cannot do it. He just cannot carry off the old warrior role.

In summation great show terrible episode. The really season a re solid the later ones maybe not as much.
