Thanks Mark. I guess I missed the part of the dialog implying that he had been put in stasis. I was ASSUMING he had been out for three years due to the blow to the head.

I thought the show was ok for a 1-shot, 10 episode series. My nit to pick (about the finale) is--the son wakes up in the hospital and ~3 years have passed. IMO, there is NO way a person that has been...

I enjoy this series quite a bit. I was a teenager during the "space race" of the '60's. So, this show has some relevance for me. I also like the attention to detail of the show----the percolator...

About 20 years ago, I bought (new) an Adcom GFA 545 and a GFP 555 II (preamp). I still have and use them frequently for my dedicated stereo system. The amp is feeding a pair of ESS Heil AMT 1b...

I've always been partial to Salamander Designs. I have two of their A/V furniture stands and have no complaints. They are VERY sturdy and look nice, IMO. The ones I have are from their "Synergy"...

DUH! I had forgotten about that part of the storyline. A mental breakdown on my part. Thanks for the info.

Once again-I REALLY like the "Look" and the "Sound" of this program. I will be sorry to...

On this week's show, who is the crippled Dr.(?) in the wheelchair with the disfigured face? I don't seem to recall this character from previous seasons. Is it a new character? Probably not. I just...

Trivia for you "Avenger" fans. Do you know where they came up with the name of "Emma Peel"? When the writers were trying to decide on a character name for Diana Rigg, they drew a blank. Finally,...

Rest in Peace Patrick Macnee

I've just read that Patrick Macnee has passed away. He is (obviously) best known for the "Avengers" tv series. I always enjoyed the EARLY part of the series with Honor Blackman, then Diana Rigg. Not...

Really glad to see this show again. Aside from the storyline--the cinematography, lighting and (for lack of a better word) background "music" (tones?) are simply outstanding! I find it a feast for...

Thanks for clearing that up for me! After seeing Ollie's hand bandaged, I should have realized that is what occurred.

I have/use dual PC12-NSD's in my 2160 cubic foot room. I think they do a very nice job. They give me all the low-frequency "rumble" I want without being pushed hard at all. Heck, I've hit the...

Strategic Air Command

I did a search and did not seem to get results for this. So-I'll start a thread about this movie. The version I'm referring to is the 1955 version with Jimmie Stewart. The reason for this thread is...

I enjoyed this weeks season finale episode. It was fun to see the role reversal of the characters. The one person I've never really cared for (during all seasons) is Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White. I...

I thought this weeks episode (Ryan going into the prison to get the hostages released) was one of the best of the series. IMO, too bad all the episodes were not of this level. YMMV.

I like the new addition to the cast--Meg Steedle as "Frankie". She is fun and sort of an antithesis to Laura. Just one observation--has Meg had something done to her upper lip? At certain angles, it...

Please get rid of the character of Iris! She adds nothing to the show. And, she acts like a "Princess". Everything has to be "her way" or she pouts and cries. Have the next "guest villain" do away...

Does it seem that Voights character isn't as "front and center" as he used to be? It feels like ~2 or 3 episodes ago, his character became (mostly) an office boss giving orders to everybody else. In...
