Did You Know?


Scales has a pronounced working class English accent. The Cape says to Scales, "... blue collar, public school guys like you..." Oddly enough, in England, 'public school' means an expensive and exclusive private sector school like Eton, Harrow, or Westminster. See more »


At the end of the show, Trip unwraps a gift he found on the window sill. The packaging read that it was a "Lenstatic Compass". The proper name for that type of compass is a "Lensatic Compass" See more »


Vince Faraday: I need backup.
Max Malini: Backup? Oh, so you're Gladys Knight, and we're the Pips?
Ruvi: [at Rollo] He's a pip.
Rollo: Do you want me to physically hurt you?
Ruvi: Why do you go to this place of violence so quickly? Cannot there be a little bit of friendly teasing?
[Rollo hits him]
Vince Faraday: Rollo! An ounce of restraint.
Rollo: I was just teasing.

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:
