Did You Know?


When Angie pulls her weapon on Big Jim the sound of the weapon being cocked can be heard along with a hand motion that would indicate pump cocking. However she is holding an M1 Carbine, a semi-automatic rifle. The pull for the bolt is behind her right hand which is never removed from the hand guard. This action would also eject a round.

One of the Best Episodes

Maxine blackmails Barbie to fight against his rival Victor in her club where people gamble food and drinks. She wants to control Chester's Mill and is using her underground bar to slowly take over the town. Meanwhile Big Jim takes his boat and goes to the island where he expects to find Maxine's secret and he meets the house's caretaker Agatha. Soon she threatens him with a gun and tells that she is Maxine's mother and they seek revenge against Chester's Mills since she was humiliated when she was young. She also discloses Barbie's secret. However Big Jim takes her gun and ties up her hand. He takes Agatha to his boat but she slips and falls into the water and Big Jim Lets her die drowned in the water. Julia discovers an insurance policy and that her husband forced Barbie to kill him to benefit her. The snoopy Dodee finds the mini-dome in the barn and touches it, but she has a shock and faints. Joe, Norrie and Angie discover take her to the hospital, and Angie discovers the owner of the fourth hand.

"Let the Games Begin" is one of the best episodes of this series. Big Jim is revealing how evil he is and now he knows Barbie's secret. Julia also finds the truth about Barbie. The unstable Junior is now one important character despite his lack of personality. Maxine is now powerful and she will probably revenge the death of her mother. My vote is eight.
