Goofs

The United States flag, located in the room in 1947 Camp Eureka where the dance was being held, is the current one that has been in use since 1960, and therefore is the incorrect version for 1947. The current flag has 50 stars (for 50 states) in the union (row pattern: 6-5-6-5-6-5-6; stars offset by row). The flag in the dance room should have shown the pattern for 48 states in the union, with 6 rows of 8 stars shown in a grid pattern. Although the flag was not fully unfurled, enough of the union was displayed to verify the incorrect star pattern for the time period. In addition, a desk flag in the medical barracks also displays the incorrect 50-star flag in an earlier scene. See more »

Jack Carter: Well, Tess was saying something about more solar flares than they'd seen in decades, putting out tons of negative energy, ironically right before she broke up with me. It was...
Henry Deacon: I know. I'm sorry, Jack. Yeah. But I think she was right.
Jack Carter: ...That's not very supportive.
Henry Deacon: No, I mean about the solar flares.

Best episode yet!
10 February 2019 | by karenmccormick-11105See all my reviews

James Callis pulls off the new character with ease and makes him unique and oddly likeable. Love the show but this episode is full of excitement. Excellent start to the best season!
