Australia seems to like the series, too:

I'm also hoping History Channel picks it up for season 3; they are promo'ing next Tuesday's episode (March 24) as "the season finale," which could be a good sign. Another encouraging fact is that Project Blue Book has become something of an international hit.

And I'm hoping we see more of Hynek's ultra-classic 1953 Cadillac, the perfect "ride" for when you're chasing UFOs:

Aha! Thanks for the correction. I got word that there's also supposed to be a red "caddy" driven by Mimi Hynek and Susie in one of the more memorable earlier episodes--that one must be the '53 they used in the series. Anyone know when they started to offer Cadillacs in color?

Kudos are due to Zemeckis and company. Their attention to detail with the cars, the aircraft, and the building exteriors in this production is amazing, and they're doing it as much with practical shooting as they are with digital vfx.

From what I remember, Susie drives a 1951 red Coupe DeVille

I want to check out her back seat ...

Another good episode, but no Susie ...

Only one more, then ... another year of waiting.

I hate waiting.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

Looks like we'll find out if she wants to make a deal with Air Force Intelligence and the C.I.A.

If that happens, Susie will probably "phone home" to Moscow on her ham radio rig...

Turns out that there was a real-life "Operation Mainbrace" held by NATO in the North Atlantic, and some very weird stuff was documented as taking place there. 1952 was one hell of a strange year when it comes to "aerial phenomena:"

Sure hope History Channel brings the show back, and sooner rather than later!
