Goofs

Several characters refer to "fortune cookies," a term not coined until the 1940s. In the 1800s they were called fortune tea cakes. Furthermore, this story connects the confection with California's Chinese culture, but it was originally a Japanese treat. The change from Japanese fortune tea cake to Chinese fortune cookie was a result of the cruel deportation of California's Japanese residents to Manzanar in the early 1940s, which opened up the market for the Chinese. (Although several anachronisms in this series are deliberately included as the result of time travel or mad science, this does not seem to be one of them.) See more »

These leads aren't going to run down themselves

The first half of 'Fountain of Youth' is standard operating procedure, and the beefcake henchmen are pretty disposable. There are some light twists involving John Bly, Professor Ogden Coles and his daughter, but it's in the third act when things heat up. Bly's origins are revealed (maybe?), the orb displays another facet of its power and it all caps off with an ellipsis. It's got "until next time" written all over it.

I did really like the Brisco/Bowler/Socrates dynamic, even though it was very short-lived. But even in an occasionally underwhelming episode, Bruce Campbell still imbues Brisco with a likability that's just inhuman. The guy's a legend.
