  • The caved-in mine scenes kept me on the edge of my seat.

    But, again, we have another discrepancy with regard to Tony Newman's background. In the series premier, he claimed to have been born in 1938. Yet, in the Pearl Harbor episode, he meets his past-self...who is age seven! And, in this episode, Gen. Kirk exclaims that--in 1958--Tony was still in high school. At age twenty??? He should have been a college sophomore, at least, by then. Oh, sure! He might have had to stay back, and repeat his senior year, due to bad grades. But, then again; if I were a government recruiter, that fact would certainly have persuaded me _not_ to hire Tony for something as important as Project: Tic-Toc! The only script-alibi that I'd have accepted from the writers of this show, if I'd been Irwin Allen? Tony was a child prodigy, who walked/talked/acted like a seven-year-old by the time he was three. And, seventeen years after that, he was a fully-certified high school _science teacher._ But, hindsight is 20/20. Isn't it?
