Trivia

This episode perpetuates the myth that exploding hydrogen was the cause of the Hindenburg crash. Actually, the cause has been proved to be the coating of the aircraft skin consisting of aluminum powder and iron hydrate. This mixture was used in rocket fuel. Once ignited by a spark, the coating burned very quickly destroying the skin of the aircraft. The hydrogen would not have ignited and burned in such a manner on its own due to a lack of enough oxygen within the airframe. Once the skin burned the hydrogen would have ignited and burned quickly and relatively safely above the aircraft. See more »

Goofs

The yellow flame as the dirigible catches fire is historical although you may wonder why the hydrogen bags burn yellow and not blue - but the spark is from the mooring mast which money presumably could not buy. See more »

Quotes

Lucy Preston: You shouldn't have brought that gun.
Wyatt Logan: Oh, the one I saved your ass with?
Lucy Preston: We are surrounded by Nazis. What if one of them takes your future gun to Berlin?
Wyatt Logan: Sometimes things get messy.
Lucy Preston: It is my job to make sure there is no mess.
Wyatt Logan: There's always a mess. That's the deal. So now we make it up as we go. And I take out Flynn. Which, by the way, might require the use of a damn gun.

Time travel yarn with political spin
25 May 2017 | by dtroyhill-49419See all my reviews

The acting is okay but they really went out of their way to go against stereo type for most main parts but felt the need of course to make the Villain the ,"evil" white dude.(seems like all movies and shows are going this way currently)

Right off the jump the black character faces, of course, the Omni-present white racist cop from the early 1900's. If that's your thing you will love it. Otherwise its an average re-write on an old theme. They could of done so much more with the material and touch on thought provoking moments in history(that could of changed history) but instead wasted it on modern politicking.

No one is surprised by its low viewership and although NBC picked it up for season 2 unless they stop preaching and do more story telling it wont make a 3rd season. I was very disappointed as I was really excited when I initially heard of the show in the previews.
