  • One of the best episodes -- lots of laughs.

    Easily one of the top 5 episodes of The Brak Show.

    Hilarity ensues after multiple trips into the time stream, as you probably expected.

    Dad's soliloquy on the meaning of life is guaranteed to slay you.

    This is one of a handful of Brak episodes where I seriously wouldn't mind if the running gag were allowed to continue for up to 2 hours. And that's not saying that other episodes wear out their welcome too soon, just that this episode is that much more superior.

    If only Thundercleese could give *us* a time machine, so we could go back and keep The Brak Show on the air... sniff.... I gotta get a tissue...

  • NOTES (1)


    • Opening Title: Diff'rent Braks
      This title parodies another old show, from 1978, called Diff'rent Strokes.

    • The Yeah Buddy song that the 2 Braks start singing sounds an awful lot like the Bee Gees' hit Stayin' Alive.

    • Dad: Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse, and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.
      He is referring to the movie, "An American Tail," in which a mouse named Feivel searches for his family, which he loses in a shipwreck on the way there.

    • Zorak: When Zorak has a vision of Granny Prison, the number on his prison suit is 655321.
      This is a reference to the movie A Clockwork Orange; 655321 is the number assigned to the main character when he is arrested and sent to prison for murder.
