Did You Know?


This episode's events are out of sequence with other plot lines. This was done to put stronger episodes earlier in the season to attract more viewers. The creators were able to make minor changes through edits and they redubbed dialogue in later episodes (for instance, they removed the explicit mention of Zoe's first day at school) to minimize audience confusion.

A hit and run with a difference
25 November 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

This episode sees Sheriff Carter called out to an unusual hit and run... the driver of the car claims to have been knocked off the road by an invisible man running at high speed! Soon afterwards a body is found; a subcutaneous chip suggests he worked at Global Dynamics and Henry's modelling of the crash show he was running at almost 600MPH! Elsewhere; at Global Dynamics two teams are being pressed to finish a project and Carter's Daughter, Zoe, has a new boyfriend... inevitably these either linked to or affected by the main story.

I rather enjoyed this episode even if it does cross over from science fiction to impossibility as characters accelerate/decelerate at rates that would cause instant death! Early theories about Bigfoot, rejected by Carter, are amusing and there is a good sense of mystery; first, who or what caused the accident; second, how they came to be moving so fast and who else is involved; and finally where they got the means to do it. The special effects are pretty good; the 'speeded up' characters were certainly better than similar things I've seen in other shows. A side story involving Jack's attempts to organise a baseball game has a resolution that is rather cheesy but still fairly amusing. Overall not the best episode but still fun.
