    This episode is one of the many reasons why I watched this series. In this episode there is a power outage courtesy of Doc Brown's latest power-draining experiments, Hill Valley finds itself with no electricity- just in time to spoil the annual Founder's Day celebrations. Promising to fix everything, Doc unleashes a surge of power that drives all the town's appliances berserk. But when the townsfolk turn to Biff Tannen to repair the power plant, thats when sparks really start to fly can Marty and Doc save the city from the mess they started and most of all Biff Tannen.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • NOTES (4)

    • This episode was released on the VHS entitled Back to the Future: Go Fly A Kite and Hill Valley Brown-Out.

    • Jules is a lot more confident in this episode than he was in "The Money Tree". In that episode, Jules had no friends, but got some at the end. Maybe, like with George McFly in 1955 during the events of Back To The Future Part I, having friends has made Jules more confident in himself and thus able to stand up to the bullies and protect his younger brother. A nice little insight on the character of Jules here.

    • In this episode there is a statue of the "Old Pioneer and his Mule" in Courthouse Square. The Old Pioneer was the founder of Hill Valley back in 1850. In the original draft for Back to the Future Part II, where instead of 1955 Marty and Doc have to go to 1967 to get the almanac off Biff, this statue is "seen", and we discover that the pioneer is called Bill Hill. They reused this idea for this episode.

    • The Hill Valley Theater is showing a film called Back to the Future in this episode!
