Susan Emerson
Stan (as Randy Havens)


The Wall Street Quarterly article and Cameron being able to complete the BIOS code have created renewed public interest in the PC project, upon which Joe wants to capitalize, not only for the project but also for himself. Cameron is dismayed however to learn that Joe's suggested vacation for her was so that he could hire a software engineering team behind her back. She does find that there are like minded individuals among the team, but she isn't sure if she can work under her new boss, the overly bureaucratic Steve. Gordon believes he has a possible solution to the computer's weight issue and the contacts to achieve his plan, Gordon's initiative which irks Joe under the surface as he was not the one to initiate it. Regardless, Joe believes he needs to be involved in the meeting with Gordon and the Japanese manufacturers to discuss the issue, and later clean up the mess that Gordon creates at that meeting, which Joe feels has placed him once again as being in a position of being ...

Did You Know?


The radio station sponsoring the car smash fundraiser is 98.2 KCYD. In the United States, the center frequency of any FM station is always an odd number. Due to FCC regulations at the time, the nearest available FM frequency in the Dallas radio market was 98.3, which was assigned to KFYC in the early 1980s. See more »

The series slows down!
1 July 2014 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Adventure is a slower episode. Adventure could be a bridge episode which develops sub-plots and character development. The viewers learn that Joe is a controlling alpha male boss. Cameron handles her demotion from software developer in a similar Joe like manner. Cameron out-wits, builds alliances to get the job which should have been hers. Gordon on the other hand who is socially backwards, gets along well with the tech people, but stumbles with a business deal. Gordon handles the Joe, a bully, in a awkward logical, but non social way. The sub-stories will have Cameron doing well in the office, and Gordon in constant confrontation. Cardiff Electric will be an adapt or die office environment. Joe's personality will create flux, and conflict as Joe battles with the president and subordinates for office supremacy! The viewer learns along with Cameron that Joe is another version of his unlike able dad. A grinding character development episode. Six out of ten.
