Episode Summary

Stay Tuned
Veil's link, a traitor within the "Organization," directs him to the idyllic town of Darby, New York, where a suspicious degree of cleanliness, incessant hospitality and unequivocal support for one local politician prevails. As he settles among the neighborly, strangely cheerful people there, he surmises that nothing in Darby is what it appears to be. After a local teenager, Michael, and his school teacher, Janet, caution Veil that something is terribly wrong in the town, he delves into the possibility that the Organization is employing a version of mind-control.moreless

  • Tom arrives in a town being controlled by a subliminal message.

    An entertaining episode. The show has many filler type episodes where Tom investigates who exactly wrecked his life and why.

    There are a bunch of episodes that are rather irritating not just because they don't lead nowhere, but they really seem irrelevant to the main plot line.

    This episode sticks out more than most because we learn the identify of one of the men in "Hidden Agenda" photo that Tom took.

    In the photo, the guy is a soldier. He has become a corrupt politician. He is as most politicians delivering lies and making him to be a moral person.

    Tom doesn't seem exactly how he is doing until a young man with vision problems brings to his attention how the people are being controlled. They are controlled by a subliminal symbol that appears in their TV. The climax is fine. This is one of those episodes where Tom does manage to expose one of the bad guys in the very top secret photo he took.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Not so much a goof of the episode, but of the DVD the episode is on. The title of this episode is "Stay Tuned", however, on the main menu of the DVD, where it lists the 3 episodes that are on the DVD, it has the title of this episode as "Staying Tuned". Then, if you select "Staying Tuned" and it goes to that show's sub menu, it has the title correct as "Stay Tuned".
