Did You Know?


On Henry's telescope box the "features" are actually a description of a the very most basic telescope.(possibly meant as a joke?) It just describes two pieces of glass ground and polished assembled together. Actually a refractor telescope like this one would normally have several lenses internally, not just two. See more »

The future's so bright...
27 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Well, it is for us now that season two is here! But for the Jennings family? They might as well be deer in the headlights.

The writer's are very clever the way they use Emmett and Leanne in this episode. It's clear from their demeanor, as well as the age of their children, that they're even older hand Directorate S agents than Phillip and Elizabeth. No sense of worry, no hesitation, no problem using the kids - they get the job done. It's clear that the Jennings hold them in high regard. They're the Jennings' future, and now we (and the Jennings) know just how horrific that future may be. That's what I call foreshadowing!

(The Lockheed Skunkworks? Man, that takes me back, full page ads featuring the SR-71 in the LA Times employment section. And Leo Buscaglia? The French Lieutenant's Woman? Document robots? WKRP? God, the eighties were awesome.)

Prince is dead, the Colonel is "safe", but Stan's instincts are still hardworking and unsatisfied. Vlad is mentioned (in passing), will that complicate Stan's life more than falling in love with his wife again? Claudia is mentioned as well, still around, that "old war horse". Bright future, indeed. Gotta wear shades. (Timbuk 3 4-eva!)

Just one thing. "Droogie" Mahendru? Anthony Burgess is rolling in his grave!
