  • I SPY S1 EP8 The Time of the Knife

    I Spy is an American television secret-agent buddy adventure series. It ran for three seasons on NBC from 1965 to 1968 and teamed US intelligence agents Kelly Robinson (Robert Culp) and Alexander "Scotty" Scott (Bill Cosby), traveling under cover as international "tennis bums". Robinson poses as an amateur with Scott as his trainer, playing against wealthy opponents in return for food and lodging. Their work involved chasing villains, spies, and beautiful women.

    Characters and settings

    I Spy broke ground in that it was the first American television drama to feature a black actor (Cosby) in a lead role. Originally an older actor was slated to play a fatherly mentor to Culp's character. After seeing Cosby performing stand-up comedy on a talk-show, Sheldon Leonard decided to take a chance on hiring him to play opposite Culp. The concept was changed from a mentor-protégé relationship to same-age partners who were equals. It was also notable that Cosby's race was never an issue in any of the stories. Nor was his character in any way subservient to Culp's, with the exception that Culp's "Kelly Robinson" was a more experienced agent. (Culp revealed in his audio commentary on the DVD release that he and Cosby agreed early on that "Our statement is a non-statement" regarding race, and the subject was never discussed again.) As a strait-laced Rhodes Scholar fluent in many languages, Cosby's "Scotty" was really the brains of the team. His partner was the athlete and playboy who lived by his wits.

    I Spy was a trailblazer in its use of exotic international locations in an attempt to emulate the James Bond film series. This was unique for a television show, especially since the series actually filmed its lead actors at locations ranging from Spain to Japan, rather than relying on stock footage. (Compare with the recent series, Alias, which also utilized worldwide settings but rarely filmed outside the Los Angeles region, and I Spy's contemporaries Mission: Impossible & The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Also on NBC), which were completely filmed on the Desilu and MGM back lots.) Each season the producers would select four or five scenic locations around the world and create stories that took advantage of the local attractions. Episodes were filmed in Athens, Rome, Florence, Madrid, Venice, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Acapulco, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Morocco.

    The success of the show is attributed to the chemistry between Culp and Cosby. Fans tuned in more for their hip banter than for the espionage stories, making I Spy a leader in the buddy genre. The two actors quickly developed a close friendship that mirrored their on-screen characters, a friendship that would last until Culp's death in 2010. The show also coined unique phrases that, briefly, became catchphrases, such as "wonderfulness". Wonderfulness was used as the title of one of Cosby's albums of stand-up comedy released concurrently with the series. Cosby also occasionally slipped in bits of his comic routines during his improvised badinage with Culp. (In one episode Scott, being interrogated under the influence of drugs, says his name is Fat Albert.) Many details of Cosby's life were also written into his character. Scott does not drink or smoke—while Kelly Robinson does both. There are frequent references to Scott's childhood in Philadelphia and attending Temple University (Cosby is sometimes seen wearing his own Temple sweatshirt), and in the "Cops and Robbers" episode, Scotty returns home to Philadelphia to revisit his old neighborhood.

    The Time of the Knife                                                                                3 Nov. 1965

    Scotty and Kelly are assigned to investigate the death of an American agent in a fiery car crash and more important, the whereabouts of the secret documents he was carrying. Word on the street is the documents were destroyed in the fire but now one really believes that, including the bad guys who are happy to trade cash or bullets to acquire them.

  • Mission Impossible S01 E24 The Train

    Mission: Impossible is an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin.

    The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996.

    The series follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organizations and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned, private missions on behalf of its members.

    The identities of the higher echelons of the organization that oversees the IMF are never revealed. Only rare cryptic bits of information are ever provided during the life of the series, such as in the third season mission "Nicole", where the IMF leader states that his instructions come from "Division Seven". In the 1980s revival, it is suggested the IMF is an independent agency of the United States government.

    18 Mar. 1967 The Train

    The dying leader of a European nation has a protégé ready to assume power. What the leader doesn't know is his protégé has plans to crack down on liberty and execute his enemies. Briggs, in addition to his normal IMF operatives, enlists the help of a physician and an Academy Award-winning art director, as part of his plan. Eventually, the IMF runs an elaborate con, including a phony train ride, aimed at causing the protégé to show his true intentions.

    The world is a stage and every actor plays his part. We are controlled by the power of the illusion. We can be lured into thinking something is real very easily. This episode is an essay on it. Now think about the recent London terror attacks. Were you there? Did you actually see anything? Or are you the victim of another propaganda staged event crafted by the intelligence agencies to change perception on issues or better yet bury some of them. But we are no longer amused. In fact I find them rather boring. I feel sorry for those seduced into thinking they are real. They give evil the power they crave.

    Kung Fu is an American action-adventure martial arts western drama television series starring David Carradine. The series aired on ABC from October 1972 to April 1975 for a total of 63 episodes. Kung Fu was preceded by a full-length feature television pilot, an ABC Movie of the Week, which was broadcast on February 22, 1972. The series became one of the most popular television programs of the early 1970s, receiving widespread critical acclaim and commercial success upon its release.

    Kung Fu was created by Ed Spielman, directed and produced by Jerry Thorpe, and developed by Herman Miller, who was also a writer for, and co-producer of, the series.

    Grasshopper Caine

    The series follows the adventures of Kwai Chang Caine (portrayed by David Carradine as an adult, Keith Carradine as a teenager, and Radames Pera as a young boy), a Shaolin monk who travels through the American Old West armed only with his spiritual training and his skill in martial arts, as he seeks Danny Caine, his half-brother. Many of the aphorisms used in the series are adapted from or derived directly from the Tao Te Ching, a book of ancient Taoist philosophy attributed to the sage Laozi.

    Keye Luke (as the blind Master Po) and Philip Ahn (as Master Kan) were also members of the regular cast. David Chow, who was also a guest star in the series, acted as the technical and kung fu advisor, a role later undertaken by Kam Yuen.

    Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine) is the orphaned son of an American man, Thomas Henry Caine, and a Chinese woman, Kwai Lin, in mid-19th century China. After his maternal grandfather's death he is accepted for training at a Shaolin Monastery, where he grows up to become a Shaolin priest and martial arts expert.

    In the pilot episode Caine's beloved mentor and elder, Master Po, is murdered by the Emperor's nephew; outraged, Caine retaliates by killing the nephew. With a price on his head, Caine flees China to the western United States, where he seeks to find his family roots and, ultimately, his half-brother, Danny Caine.

    Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?

    Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.

    Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?

    Caine: No.

    Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?

    Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?

    Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

    Of course you come to Conspiracy Cafe a site that hears the heart and sees the grasshopper. Others who do not may chide you, but they do not see or hear as Christ was able to say despite their having eyes and ears.

    5 "The Tide" Walter Doniger A. Martin Zweiback February 1, 1973

    A man with a price on his head can spark a lot of ambitions. A woman wants to capture Caine so she can offer him to the Chinese government in exchange for her imprisoned father, a dissident author, while a killer hiding behind a badge simply wants to get rich.

    This was a masterpiece of the human condition TREACHERY! The reward for same is clearly illustrated too. We sell our dignity, our friends, our loves, our very soul for that imaginary thing called money that does not exist in Eden. Have you? Will you? I refuse. Greed and the lust for power and the devil's attributes not God's. Who do you serve in your heart and soul? 

  • The Champions EP14 The Search

    The Champions is a British espionage/science fiction/occult detective fiction adventure series consisting of 30 episodes broadcast on the UK network ITV during 1968-1969, produced by Lew Grade's ITC Entertainment production company. The series was broadcast in the US on NBC, starting in summer 1968.

    The series features Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett as agents for a United Nations law enforcement organization called "Nemesis", based in Geneva. The three have different backgrounds: Barrett is a code breaker, Stirling a pilot, and Macready a recently widowed scientist and doctor.

    During their first mission as a team, their plane crashes in the Himalayas. They are rescued by an advanced civilization living secretly in the mountains of Tibet, who save their lives, granting them perfected human abilities, including powers to communicate with one another over distances by ESP (telepathy), and to foresee events (precognition), enhanced five senses and intellect, and physical abilities to the fullest extent of human capabilities.


    Many stories feature unusual villains, such as fascist regimes from unspecified South American countries, Nazis (a common theme of ITC 1960s and '70s TV, in part due to both the domestic audience and writers having been the "War generation") or the Chinese. The villains' schemes often threaten world peace – Nemesis's brief is international, so the agents deal with threats transcending national interests. The main characters have to learn the use of their new powers as they go along, keeping what they discover secret from friends and foe alike. Each episode begins with a teaser, followed by the title/theme song. Immediately following that is a post-title sequence vignette in which one of The Champions demonstrates exceptional mental or physical abilities, often astonishing or humiliating others. In one example Stirling participates in a sharpshooting contest. Additionally, Stirling hears the ticking of his girlfriend's lost wristwatch in a large field, enabling him to locate it. In another, laughing hoodlums block in Macready's car, which she physically pulls out of the parking space one-handed. Ironically, the narration during these often public demonstrations usually mentions the need to keep the powers a secret.

    After a nuclear submarine is stolen by ex Nazis who are determined to use it to continue the war the Champions are tasked with hunting it down.

    The show was filmed on HMS Artemis. She sank July1, 1971.

  • STAR TREK S2 EP23 The Omega Glory

    On our Ministry page we posted Exploring the Name. It is a sermon on God's true name and the power associated with using it. Over the eons of time the name of God has been obscured. In fact it has been removed from scripture and replaced with substitutes. The sermon restores the original and speaks it.

    The name of God used most often in the Hebrew Bible is the Tetragrammaton YHWH (Hebrew: יהוה‎;). It is frequently anglicized as Jehovah and Yahweh and written in most English editions of the Bible as "the Lord" owing to the Jewish tradition of reading it as Adonai ("My Lords") out of respect.

    In this episode of Star Trek the Enterprise crew come upon a culture that have lost the ability to speak the Pledge of Allegiance. They pronounce the words so poorly it is not understood. Captain Kirk restores the language and the deep meaning. In the original the name of God is restored in the sermon to give it the power that it always was meant to have. Use it yourself and Pledge Allegiance. 

    "The Omega Glory" is a second season episode of the original science fiction television series Star Trek, first broadcast March 1, 1968, and repeated July 26, 1968. It is episode #52, production #54, written by Gene Roddenberry, and directed by Vincent McEveety. The story was one of three outlines submitted for selection as the second pilot of Star Trek, the others being "Mudd's Women" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before".

    In this episode, Captain Kirk must find the cure to a deadly disease and put an end to another Starfleet captain's cultural interference.


    The episode begins with the starship Enterprise finding the USS Exeter still orbiting Omega IV, six months after it stopped communicating with Starfleet. Captain Kirk forms a boarding party with Spock, Dr. McCoy and Lt. Galloway, and beams over to find the ship deserted, save for a few uniforms covered with a crystalline substance — found to be the chemicals of the human body when all water is removed. The ship's logs show that the Exeter's landing party contracted a strange disease on the planet and brought it back to the ship. The medical officer's last log, warns anyone watching it that they have been exposed to the disease and will die unless they go down to the planet; returning to their own ship would only spread the disease.

    Kirk's party beams to the last coordinates in the Exeter's computer and they find themselves in what resembles a Tibetan village. They see two prisoners, a man and woman, are being prepared for execution by native warriors who appear Asian. Leading the warriors is Exeter Captain Ron Tracey (Morgan Woodward) who pauses the execution and greets Kirk. Tracey explains he was stranded when the disease ravaged his ship. He discovered that remaining on the planet confers immunity. He tells the party they will be safe as long as they stay on the planet. Tracey then explains the prisoners are savages called "Yangs" who are waging a war with the villagers, the "Kohms."

    The village is attacked by the Yangs and Galloway is injured. McCoy takes him into a hut for treatment while Spock investigates a pile of Yang bodies. He finds exhausted phaser power packs, evidence that Tracey is helping the Kohms, a violation of the Prime Directive. Kirk tries to contact the Enterprise, but Tracey confiscates his communicator. When Galloway reaches for his phaser, Tracey disintegrates him. He defends his actions, because the planet offers valuable medical benefits — the people are immune to the disease and they also have incredibly long life spans. He presents a villager who claims to be 462 years old with a father who is over a thousand.

    Tracey orders McCoy to investigate the secrets of their longevity and has Kirk and Spock locked up in a crude jail. Kirk is thrown in with the two Yang prisoners. They attack him, but Spock manages to nerve pinch the female and the male stops, concerned. When Kirk plots an escape, he uses the word "freedom." The Yang male objects to an "enemy" using a "Yang worship word." Kirk gets the Yang to loosen the bars of the cell window. Once opened, the Yang knocks Kirk out and takes the woman. When Kirk recovers, he and Spock make their own escape.

    Reunited with McCoy, Spock modifies some medical equipment into a makeshift communicator. McCoy believes the natives' immunity and longevity are the result of evolution; the inhabitants developed hardy physiologies as a result of a cataclysmic war. So any infected visitor naturally acquires an immunity (but not longevity) after being on the planet.

    An angry Tracey destroys the communicator. He demands that Kirk order a supply of phasers from the Enterprise. McCoy and Kirk try to explain that there is no Fountain of Youth, the natives just live long lives. Kirk tells Tracey that his interference has been for nothing. Tracey's mind snaps and he demands that Kirk order the weapons. Kirk calls Lt. Sulu who insists on clarifying the situation before complying. He asks Kirk if he should send a security team, but Kirk refuses to explain, saying the security team is not needed. Kirk then tries to wrestle Tracey's phaser away, but fails. He escapes, but is quickly recaptured. Tracey tries to shoot Kirk, but his phaser is out of power.

    The two fight over an axe when Yang warriors arrive and take everyone back to their village. Their leader, Cloud William, turns out to be the prisoner from earlier. Cloud produces a very old American Flag and ancient manuscripts from which he poorly recites the Pledge of Allegiance. When Kirk completes the Pledge of Allegiance, the Yangs are shocked. Spock surmises that the cultures may have developed along very similar lines to Earth. Kirk speculates that the Kohms were "Communists" and Yangs were "Yankees." Apparently, the Omegans had a war, similar to the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States. The conflict resulted in a war that destroyed both cultures many centuries earlier. Even Spock found the parallel between the two worlds to be "almost too close".

    The Yangs decide to execute Kirk and his companions, but Tracey claims that Kirk and the others are evil. Tracey tells Cloud that Kirk was cast out of Heaven and claims that Spock looks like an image of Satan in a Yang document. Despite their explanations that the Vulcan is not a devil, Cloud is not convinced and asks Kirk to complete the "sacred words" starting with 'E Plebneesta' from another document. Kirk doesn't understand the words and suggests that he and Tracey duel to the death — since good always triumphs over evil. As Kirk and Tracey begin to fight, Spock notices a communicator near Cloud's female companion, and makes a mental suggestion which causes her to activate it. Soon, just as Kirk subdues Tracey, Sulu and a security detail beam down to investigate the situation. Kirk spares Tracey's life and has him taken into custody to face Federation charges.

    The Yangs now believe Kirk is a deity and Cloud kneels before him, but Kirk refutes this and tells him to stand up. He looks over the ancient, crumbling document, which appears to be a version of the American Constitution. Kirk finishes the sacred speech (the Preamble to the United States Constitution) and rebukes the Yangs for allowing the document to degrade. He declares that the words were not just for the Yangs, but for Kohms, as well, declaring that they "must apply to everyone or they mean nothing." Cloud doesn't fully understand, but swears to Kirk that the "holy words" will be obeyed. Before departing, Kirk takes one last proud look at Old Glory.

    Min Min Lights of the Australian Outback

    In the Outback of Queensland, Australia, ghostly orbs of light have been frightening people for centuries. Local residents call them Min Min lights, named after the early settlement and hotel in Boulia. Seemingly persistent one moment, but fleeting the next, the lights follow travelers far across the land and seem to have an intelligence about them. The town of Boulia has become somewhat famous for the ghost lights. Oral traditions of Aboriginal people recorded them as having existed even before the colonization of Europeans in Australia. What do we know about the mystery of the orbs and what are some of the theories about what they could be?

    The show leaves out the ground observations the link describes. Observers have a grander description.

    Google earth reveals strange Antarctic entrances – evidence of secret UFO bases?

    On Google Earth one can find two large entrances that extend below the Antarctic surface and ice near the coastline. For some observers, they are natural caverns formed over time by the intense Antarctic weather conditions. Not so according to Scott Waring owner of the popular UFO Sightings blog. In a post released yesterday, Waring claimed that they might be entrances to an alien base or a secret facility of some kind. He highlighted a video containing close-ups of the two large entrances. In the video, there is also an image of what Waring believes to be a huge saucer shaped object buried under melting ice near Antarctica. While there is no Google Earth image available of the mysterious buried UFO, the cave/base entrances are available for independent analysis. If the latter are indeed entrances to underground bases, then it would appear that claims that UFOs have bases in Antarctica, and may have even helped fleeing World War II Nazis escape a punitive U.S. Naval expedition, are not so far-fetched after all.

    Weaubleau Impact Crater

    The Weaubleau (or Weaubleau-Osceola) structure appears to be a 7 to 8 km diameter impact crater located in St. Clair County, Missouri. It dates from the latest Osagean to earliest Meramecian stage of the Mississippian, about 340 million years ago.

    This site has United States all impact craters. It has detailed analysis.

    It is important to note that events like this are described in the Bible. Earth appears to have regular cataclysms. If our 'lights' in the sky are another secular lie, we should not preclude a more godly interpretation. Civilizations that cross boundaries playing god or tampering with the creation seem to be reset to zero. That is not a repetitive pattern to take lightly.

    Matthew 24:29

    Immediately after the tribulation of those days: 'The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.'

    Revelation 6:13

    and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, like unripe figs dropping from a tree shaken by a great wind.

    Iram of the Pillars, the Lost ‘Atlantis of the Sands’

    The literature of past civilizations often mention cities which are now lost to humanity, the most famous of those being the lost city of Atlantis. On a smaller scale, Arabia has its own legend of a lost civilization, the so-called ‘Atlantis of the Sands’ – a lost city, tribe, or area spoken of in the Quran, which has come to be known as Iram of the Pillars.

    In the Quran, Iram was said to be adorned with lofty buildings, and was populated by a group of people known as Ad. As they had turned away from Allah and led wicked lives, the prophet Hud was sent to summon them to return to the worship of Allah without ascribing partners to Him, and to obey Him. The people of Iram reacted with hostility and did not heed to words of Hud. As a result, the Ad were punished, and a sandstorm was sent against their city consecutively for seven nights and eight days. In the end, Iram vanished beneath the sands as though it had never existed. On one hand, the story of Iram may be taken just as a morality tale, used in order to preach that people must obey Allah, and not behave in an arrogant manner. On the other hand, there may be some truth to this story, and indeed there are many who believe that such a city could have once existed.

    These Scientists Think "Hexagonal Clouds" Could Explain The Bermuda Triangle

    A group of scientists believe they have the answer to the decades of sea tales surrounding the Bermuda Triangle. The new idea says this much-feared triangular region of the Atlantic ocean may be explained through strange “hexagonal clouds” creating “air-bombs”.

    While looking at satellite images of coastal clouds above the North Atlantic Ocean, the meteorologists reportedly noted strange patterns of hexagonal gaps as large as 88 kilometers (55 miles) in the cloud formations, according to Science Channel. It just so happens, this bizarre phenomenon was found on the west tip of the Bermuda Triangle, as well as a precarious point in Europe's North Sea.

    This list of rogue waves compiles incidents of known and likely rogue waves – also known as freak waves, monster waves, killer waves, and extreme waves. These are relatively large and spontaneous ocean surface waves that occur in deep water, usually far out at sea, and are a threat even to large ships and ocean liners.

    A Google Maps satellite spotted a series of bizarre structures during a sweep of the Gobi desert in China - and the mysterious objects sparked a wave of speculation that they could be anything from 'codes' to be read from space to practice targets modelled on US cities.

  • Homeland S5 EP12 A False Glimmer

    Homeland is an American political thriller television series developed by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa based on the Israeli series Hatufim (English title: Prisoners of War), which was created by Gideon Raff.

    The series stars Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, a Central Intelligence Agency officer with bipolar disorder, and Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody, a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper. Mathison had come to believe that Brody, who was held captive by al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was "turned" by the enemy and poses a threat to the United States.

    The fifth season of the American television drama series Homeland, consisting of 12 episodes, premiered on October 4, 2015 on Showtime. The series is loosely based on the Israeli television series Hatufim (English: Prisoners of War) created by Gideon Raff and is developed for American television by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa.

    Set two years after the previous season, Carrie is no longer working for the CIA, and is working for a philanthropic foundation in Berlin. The season includes several real world subjects in its storylines; including ISIS, Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, the Charlie Hebdo shooting, and Edward Snowden.

    "A False Glimmer" is the twelfth episode and the season finale of the fifth season of the American television drama series Homeland, and the 60th episode overall. It was broadcast on Showtime on December 20, 2015.


    Carrie (Claire Danes) tracks down Qasim (Alireza Bayram) in the subway tracks. She convinces an already hesitant Qasim to intervene in Bibi's (René Ifrah) releasing of the sarin gas. Carrie offers her gun but Qasim is only willing to try and talk Bibi out of it. Qasim is shot by Bibi when he refuses to back down, and tackles Bibi in response. Carrie approaches and shoots Bibi in the back as they struggle, killing him and neutralizing the threat. Qasim succumbs to his wounds.

    With Allison on the run, Saul (Mandy Patinkin) presses Krupin (Mark Ivanir) for details on what her extraction procedure would be. Saul notes that with Allison having abandoned the CIA, Krupin no longer has a viable claim to being her informant. Saul makes an offer to Krupin: a new identity and witness protection in exchange for the information he wants. Krupin accepts.

    Numan (Atheer Adel) is apprehended by the BND. By threatening to have Numan deported to Turkey (where he is now an enemy of the state), Astrid (Nina Hoss) coerces Laura (Sarah Sokolovic) into making a false public declaration that Faisal Marwan had been working with the terrorist cell in Berlin.

    Carrie attempts to re-open her relationship with Jonas (Alexander Fehling). Jonas declines, saying he can't live with the safety of his family in doubt, recalling what happened to his son. Saul makes overtures to Carrie to re-join the CIA, offering her the power to choose her own missions and team members. Carrie repeatedly rebuffs him, saying "I'm not that person any more". Otto Düring essentially proposes to Carrie, which would allow her to co head the Foundation and help him use his money for good.

    Allison's (Miranda Otto) handlers try to smuggle her out of the country in the trunk of their car. The car is diverted to a detour in Poland where it runs over a spike strip. A group of gunmen unload hundreds of bullets into the disabled car, killing all inside. Saul emerges from the shadows and checks the trunk of the car, finding Allison's dead body riddled with bullets.

    Quinn (Rupert Friend) suffers a massive brain hemorrhage, making his chance of recovering any brain function minimal. Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) presents Carrie with the letter Quinn wrote for her before he embarked for Syria. After several days with no signs of recovery, Carrie enters Quinn's hospital room alone and barricades the door closed. She removes Quinn's pulse monitor and places it on her own finger. The episode ends with Carrie seeing a burst of sunlight come through the window.

    This is a lesson to all. You are on a covert mission. There is a change in the planned route. Assume it is an ambush and get out fast. Their response should have been to turn around and take the road they approached on. They already know the lay of the land. Falling that under dire straights dispatch the roadblock and proceed to the target point at full speed. The error cost them their lives. A good agent should have known.

    Murdoch Mysteries is a Canadian television drama series aired on both City and CBC Television, titled The Artful Detective on the Ovation cable TV network, featuring Yannick Bisson as William Murdoch, a police detective working in Toronto, Ontario, around the turn of the twentieth century. The television series is based on characters from the novel series by Maureen Jennings.

    The series takes place in Toronto starting in 1895 and follows Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) of the Toronto Constabulary, who solves many of his cases using methods of detection that were unusual at the time. These methods include fingerprinting (referred to as "finger marks" in the series), blood testing, surveillance, and trace evidence.

    Some episodes feature anachronistic technology whereby Murdoch sometimes uses the existing technology of his time to improvise a crude prototype of a technology that would be more readily recognizable to the show's 21st-century audience. In one episode, for instance, he creates a primitive version of sonar to locate a sunken ship in Lake Ontario. In another, he effectively invents wire-tapping. In still another, a foreign police officer has a photograph that Murdoch needs as evidence, so Murdoch asks the other officer to overlay the photograph with a grid numerically coded for the colour in each square, and to transmit the numerical data to Murdoch via telegraph – with the end result that the foreign officer has essentially sent Murdoch a bitmap image they call a "facsimile" – a telefax.

    Detective Murdoch is assisted by the three other main characters: Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Doctor Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), and the inexperienced but eager Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris). Brackenreid, Murdoch's immediate superior, is a blunt and sceptical Yorkshireman with a fondness for whisky, and prefers conventional methods of detection over Murdoch's eccentric methods, though he is typically pleased and proud when Murdoch is successful despite the odds. Dr. Ogden is a great supporter of Murdoch's methods. Her skill in pathology usually helps by revealing a great deal of useful evidence to aid Murdoch in solving cases. Doctor Emily Grace (Georgina Reilly). She and George Crabtree show some romantic interest in each other.
