Did You Know?


Scales calls Flemming (in his silly cowboy suit) 'Fauntleroy'. The 1880s book 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' was incredibly popular in the US. Its pre-teen title character wore a velvet waistcoat over a puffy blouse with lace collar, a big floppy bow tie and short pantaloons with tight hose and a girly haircut. To some middle class Americans this just screamed 'wealth and status' and so thousands of American boys were forced by pretentious mothers to dress like complete and utter twits. Everyone made fun of them. See more »

Rollo: [kicks Scale into a cage] The next time we meet, I'm gonna make me a pair of boots out of you.
Max Malini: Hey, what are you waiting for? Brandy and a cigar? Come on, let's go!
Scales: Nobody puts me in a cage!
Max Malini: You know, I believe him. Let's get the hell out of here.

Action Aborad a Classic Train: Most Cool:
24 January 2011 | by Traxman15See all my reviews

Not as Good as Previous Attempts, but quite enjoyable, regardless of some weak Plot Points! The Character of Orwell is beginning to Mature into a Formidable adversary for anyone challenging The Cape, who it seems is played by someone I've never Heard of before (though he does look very Familiar, I'm sure I've seen him on Shows Before, and when I recall, I'm sure it will be a Big relief!) But I digress, casting a person in the Lead who I have not watched before, often makes me dislike a Show, but since this is Brand Spanking New, I will reserve Judgment until at least a few have aired, if it survives that is! Saying all this I still like this episode Very Much and will now Continue to catch it Because I love Summer Glau, and will watch her to see how good an actress she is developing into:

Thanx for Tuning in: Cheers T:
