While no Masterpiece Theater I though Houdini & Doyle was enjoyable enough. It kind of bothered me when they said things like, "I'll bet you a hundred bucks".....first a "hundred bucks" back then would be like $10,000 bucks now(WAG) and did they even use the term "bucks" back then?? In another seen someone wagered $5,000 dollars(he had a wad of it in his hand), $5000 dollars back when this was supposed to be set?? WAG, more than someone would make in their entire life.....I mean when I watch something like Lets make a deal
shot in the early 70s and they value a new full sized V8 Buick or Chrysler.....slightly under $5k
and something like a Vega for change under $3k......well you get my drift.
Note to advertisers, both my teen daughters liked Houdini & Doyle.......and those are the type of people advertisers want, not us nit pickers
I agree, the dress and forwardness of the lead female cop was a hundred or more years off, but she was sure easy on the eyes
Season Pass for now, I may reassess it if it gets too over the top like Reign did but for now there are lots worse stuff on broadcast TV to watch with my kids
OK spending too much time on this.......but $100 in 1913(as far back as my chart goes) would be the same as $2400 today, $5,000 in 1913 would be the same as $120,268.69 today.....I doubt he would have been carrying around a wad of $120k
