There's a discussion early about how a blue dress would have appeared green in yellow light. That would be true if we were mixing pigments, but light works differently. A blue dress appears blue by reflecting blue light. Blue is a primary color in light, so only blue light is reflected by an object that appears blue. The dress might appear blue or black, but not green. See more »


Susan: If I tell you the truth, I'm breaking the law. They'll lock me up anyway.
Timothy: I don't want riddles, Susan. I want to know.
Susan: The truth?
Timothy: Yes!

The War Sometimes Brings Out the Worst
14 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Nicely rounded ending as the quartet is able to find inroads into a government testing program that destroyed the lives of soldiers willing to sacrifice for a cause. Part of the collateral damage is the death of a man who was wise to this, and the incarceration and conviction of the woman he loved previously. Also, a daughter is victimized by secrecy. In this episode, our heroes are put to the test, almost being branded traitors. I wish there were a couple more years of stories. These are fun because the ensemble cast is so interesting.
