We've always managed to be first in the race against time, well except for that whole Sputnik thing and putting a man in space, but gosh darnet we put a man on the moon first! Except I don't think that had even happened by then.

So I just realized that our co-pilot Danny is played by one Mr. Chick Chandler... aka Wilbur, the gad-about guardian angel from "Once Upon a Honeymoon." Wonder which he enjoyed playing more: a rock climbing, dino-shootin' stick jockey or the most foppish cherub that heaven's show choir could spare.

I LOVE this ep. This + Catalina Caper are two of the tragically underrated shining stars of Season 2. That being said - for the love of all that is holy and right in this world, SOMEONE with more digital editing skills that I have please download this vid and fix (read: eliminate) that ridiculous goatee of Joel's!

Why "Drop Personal Pronouns"? That style of broken English is really more about dropping articles, conjugating verbs incorrectly, and maybe using the wrong pronouns.

How did they make Mike and the set he's in look black in white when he appears on the view screen as Hugh Beaumont without filming it in black and white? When he flicks on the lighter, you can see the color of his face.

I have a technical question. How did they make Mike (as Hugh Beaumont) look like he was in black and white? I considered it could be just good art design and makeup but then he lit his pipe and his face was its normal color in that light. Is there some light filter that cuts out all color?

I actually think that some of the lines in this movie are pretty funny. Granted, the movie as a whole is awful, but I found myself laughing at a couple of lines.

"Dame said she voted last year. Maybe she lied..." I'm sorry, but I laughed.

FOUND! The “lost” last five minutes of Lost Continent…

The survivors finally make it back to civilization and find out the rocket was already obsolete before they even left. The search party was just an elaborate ruse to get rid of Major Joe Nolan (Cesar Romero) for a few weeks so the commanding General could nail the base hussy, Marla. That night Major Nolan confronts the General at the Officers Club, his face contorted in rage. “Now just take it easy, Joe,” the General says, “I can explain.” Major Nolan draws back his fist. The General cowers, “I swear, Joe, I didn’t know about all the rocks.” Major Nolan is ready to strike, ablaze in anger, then pulls his punch, laughs heartily, holds out his hand for the General to shake, says, “You sly old so and so…you really got me good this time, General, I have to give you that!” (laugher) “Hope you were careful, General, and if not name it after me!” (wild laughter) “Now buy me a beer!"

THE END.

Ram Chips - Good thing: Dr. Forrester's hair is getting progressively madder with each episode. Bad thing: If 20 minutes of rock climbing wasn't bad enough, they have only 9 rocks, which are rectangular blocks...ugh. Men climb up rocks onto the SAME rocks! May as well mention the trees...men walk off the set...back onto the SAME set with the SAME trees...oh help, I love this episode.

This is one of my favorites because of the way that Joel and the Bots totally lose it because of the rock climbing. I know a lot of folks that have a tough time with this episode, but I think the pay off is worth it. Not only do we get Cesar Romero, but we also get "monkey boy" Sid Melton. Plus, Crow's line, "Will someone PLEASE tell the director about compressing time through editing?!", is a complete classic.
