Trivia

For the director/producer 'Thomas Schlamme', the visual pattern for the show when shooting the pilot is influenced by Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971). See more »

Goofs

The show frequently has the military using Metric distances. The military during WWII were still using customary units (feet, yards, and miles). However, these were military scientists, who would have indeed used metric. See more »

Seems Like a Lot of Shark Jumping
18 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I started out as a big fan of this show, partly for the science, whether or not it was accurate relative to history. And I was prepared to put up with the soap opera, "Dallas" qualities. But, I've become increasingly dissatisfied with the prurient and, mostly, implausible story lines. The writers seem to have dedicated themselves to fabricating multiple subplots that they think will dazzle in complexity........flashbacks, dream sequences........not to speak of eavesdropping and other tired devices. (I'm waiting for amnesia.) To me it's turned into a mess, and I've begun to have this visual image 4 or 5 Fonzies lined up on water skis. Sadly, I've decided to tune out.
