  • The Wild Wild West S1 EP08 The Night of ...

    1896 Views - 0 Comments


    The Wild Wild West is an American television series that ran on CBS for four seasons (104 episodes) from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969. Two television movies were made with the original cast in 1979 and 1980, and the series was adapted for a motion picture in 1999.

    Developed at a time when the television western was losing ground to the spy genre, this show was conceived by its creator, Michael Garrison, as "James Bond on horseback." Set during the administration of President Ulysses Grant (1869–77), the series followed Secret Service agents James West (Robert Conrad) and Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) as they solved crimes, protected the President, and foiled the plans of megalomaniacal villains to take over all or part of the United States.

    The show also featured a number of fantasy elements, such as the technologically advanced devices used by the agents and their adversaries. The combination of the Victorian era time-frame and the use of Verne-esque technology has inspired some to give the show credit as being one of the more "visible" origins of the steampunk subculture. These elements were accentuated even more in the 1999 movie adaptation.

    Despite high ratings, the series was cancelled near the end of its fourth season as a concession to Congress over television violence. (OR A LITTLE TOO MUCH TRUTH BEING STRANGER THAN FICTION.)

    Blue Light is a 1966 United States espionage drama television series starring Robert Goulet and Christine Carère about the adventures of an American double agent in Nazi Germany during World War II. It aired from January 12 to May 18, 1966.

    Prior to Nazi Germany's conquest of Europe, the United States places 18 sleeper agents – collectively forming an espionage organization called "Code: Blue Light" – inside Germany, assigned to penetrate the German high command during World War II. Journalist David March is one of them. He passes himself off to the Germans as a foreign correspondent who has officially renounced his American citizenship and come to Germany in order to support the Nazi cause. The Germans put him to work as a writer and broadcaster of Nazi propaganda – and occasionally as a spy for Germany. The Germans catch and execute the other 17 Blue Light agents, and as the lone survivor March must work hard to maintain his cover and avoid detection and arrest by German counterintelligence agents while secretly spying for the Allies. He is so deeply undercover that except for a few United States Government officials who know that he is a double agent loyal to the United States, the entire world believes him to be a pro-Nazi traitor – so much so that not only does he discover that a woman he loves has committed suicide because of his supposed support for Nazism, but he must also avoid capture or assassination by Allied intelligence agencies unaware that he secretly works for the Allies.

    March's confidante, assistant, and contact with the underground is Suzanne Duchard, also a double agent who poses as a French Gestapo agent who hates him. She knows that he is a Blue Light double agent, and secretly both supports his espionage activities against the Germans and falls in love with him.

    In his adventures, March sees a lot of action and faces many moral dilemmas, such as tough choices between carrying out his orders and protecting innocents. He often kills in order to maintain his cover or fulfill a mission.

    1 1 "The Last Man" The Germans have become aware of Blue Light and have captured and executed 17 of the 18 Blue Light spies operating in Germany. German Gestapo Captain Elm suspects that March is the last surviving Blue Light agent and sets out to expose him. The Allies, meanwhile, have discovered a new German super-weapon program located at Grossmuchen, Germany. March is the only Allied agent with a chance at gaining access to the new weapon, and Allied intelligence must counter Elm's efforts by convincing the Germans that March is a loyal Nazi. Eventually, the tables are turned, March frames Elm, and the Germans are convinced that Elm is the traitor.

  • Murdoch Mysteries S6 EP1 Murdoch Air

    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), who aspires to be a mystery-novel writer. 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. Crabtree is often unable to grasp the more advanced methods, but his enthusiasm and loyalty make him a good assistant. Like Crabtree, 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. Throughout the series, Murdoch's growing infatuation with her, and his inability to express his feelings, provide a light subplot. In the fifth season, after Dr. Ogden is married to Dr. Darcy Garland (a colleague she met in Buffalo), a new doctor is introduced, Doctor Emily Grace (Georgina Reilly). She and George Crabtree show some romantic interest in each other.

    The Time Tunnel is a 1966-1967 U.S. color science fiction TV series, written around a theme of time travel adventure and starring James Darren and Robert Colbert. The show was inspired by the 1964 movie The Time Travelers (AIP/Dobil), and was creator-producer Irwin Allen's third science fiction television series, released by 20th Century Fox Television and broadcast on ABC. The show ran for one season of 30 episodes. Reruns are viewable on cable and by Internet streaming. A pilot for a new series was produced in 2002, although it was not picked up.

    Project Tic-Toc is a top secret U.S. government effort to build an experimental time machine, known as "The Time Tunnel" due to its appearance as a cylindrical hallway. The base for Project Tic-Toc is a huge, hidden underground complex in Arizona, 800 floors deep and employing over 36,000 people. The directors of the project are Dr. Douglas Phillips (Robert Colbert), Dr. Anthony Newman (James Darren), and Lt. General Heywood Kirk (Whit Bissell). The specialists assisting them are Dr. Raymond Swain (John Zaremba), a foremost expert in electronics, and Dr. Ann MacGregor (Lee Meriwether), an electro-biologist supervising the unit that determines how much force and heat a time traveler is able to withstand. The series is set in 1968, two years into the future of the actual broadcast season, 1966-67.

    Project Tic-Toc is in its tenth year when United States Senator Leroy Clark (Gary Merrill) comes to investigate in order to determine whether the project, which has cost 7.5 billion dollars, is worth continuing. Senator Clark feels the project is a waste of government funds. When speaking to Phillips, Kirk, and Newman in front of the Time Tunnel, he delivers an ultimatum: either they send someone into time and return him during the course of his visit or their funding will cease. Tony volunteers for this endeavor, but he is turned down by project director Doug Phillips. Defying this decision, Tony sends himself into time. Doug follows shortly after to rescue him, but they both continue to be lost in time. Senator Clark returns to Washington with the promise that funding will not be cut off to the project, leaving General Kirk in charge.

    12 "The Death Trap" William Hale Leonard Stadd December 2, 1966 February 21, 1861 Baltimore, Maryland

    A barn in an abandoned northern neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland is the landing place of Tony and Doug where they become involved in an Abolitionist plot to assassinate President-elect Abraham Lincoln on his way secretly to Washington, D.C. for his inauguration on March 4, 1861. The ringleader is Jeremiah Gebhardt, played by Scott Marlowe, who was an accomplice of John Brown in his 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry. Tony and Doug are met by Matthew Gebhardt, played by Tom Skerritt. In the Time Tunnel control room the image screen shifts its image to the April 14, 1865 assassination of Lincoln in Ford's Theater confusing the general, Ann, and Ray, but associating the events, the attempted assassination with the successful assassination. Jeremiah points out that the southern secessionists would be blamed thereby sparking a war with the South and resulting in an end to slavery. The meeting is violently broken up by Lincoln's security detail led by Allan Pinkerton, played by R.G. Armstrong, who kill four of the conspirators and take Doug into custody. Tony escapes with Jeremiah and Matthew to their home where they live with their 11-year-old brother David, played by Christopher Harris. Jeremiah reveals the particulars of his plot to Tony: he has constructed a time bomb that he plans to plant on Lincoln's train when it is switched to "the Washington line." Jeremiah hears Lincoln's train as it arrives at the abandoned depot, and goes to investigate. Tony tries to dissuade Matthew from the plot, which he knows from history will fail. Doug is interrogated by Pinkerton as Lincoln's train arrives, and Lincoln is invited into the depot where Doug gets the opportunity to talk with him. In response to Lincoln's concern about the survival of the Union, Doug assures him that it will survive for more than a century to come. Since Pinkerton had delayed Lincoln's train due to the actual assassination plot he partially foiled, Jeremiah changes his plan to bombing the depot. Tony resists, and is tied up in the kitchen. Matthew diverts Pinkerton's attention from the depot by shooting a rabbit near the depot allowing Jeremiah to place the time bomb next to the depot. Tony manages to escape from the Gebhardt house, get to the depot, and intercept the bomb, which he throws away from the depot. David finds the bomb, examines it, and is picked up by the Time Tunnel when General Kirk decides to bring the bomb into the tunnel to defuse it. Afraid to come out of the tunnel, David is thrown a pack of tools to help him stop the bomb's timing dial. He succeeds by placing a screw driver into the hole for the windup key. David is then returned to 1861. Matthew decides to stop Jeremiah, but Jeremiah finds the bomb and attempts to follow through with his plan until Matthew stands up to him. Brotherly affection gets the better of Jeremiah, and he goes home with Matthew after Doug throws the bomb safely away. He and Tony notice the screw driver that David had placed into the bomb, which they realize could only have come from the Time Tunnel. They dematerialize to their next adventure.

    The Borgias is a historical-fiction drama television series created by Neil Jordan; it debuted in 2011 and was canceled in 2013.

    The series is set around the turn of the 16th century and follows the Borgia family. It stars Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI with François Arnaud as Cesare, Holliday Grainger as Lucrezia and David Oakes as Juan. Colm Feore also stars as Cardinal della Rovere.

    The series follows the rise of the Borgia family to the pinnacle of the Roman Catholic Church and their struggles to maintain their grip on power. The beginning of the first season depicts the election of Rodrigo Borgia to the papacy through simony and bribery, with the help of his sons, Cesare and Juan. Upon winning the election, Rodrigo Borgia becomes Pope Alexander VI, which then thrusts him and his family deep into the murky heart of politics in fifteenth-century Europe: from shifting loyalties within the College of Cardinals to the ambitions of the kings of Europe to the venomous rivalries between the noble families of Italy at the time.

    55"The Borgias in Love"John MayburyNeil JordanApril 24, 2011 (2011-04-24)0.778[7]

    Lucrezia is very unhappy with her brutish husband, who brutally rapes her night after night, and the pope is tormented by nightmares about her. After trying and failing to secure safe passage for French troops from the Medici rulers of Florence, Della Rovere makes the same request of Sforza, the Duke of Milan. Cesare follows to Florence, offering the Medici an inquisition against the preacher Savonarola, in exchange for denying free passage to the French. Lucrezia flirts with a handsome young servant and entices him to sabotage her husband's saddle so that he will have a riding accident, which he does. The Borgias are soliciting suitable brides for Juan. Cesare interprets Ursula Bonadeo's request to be "freed" from her unhappy marriage as license to kill her husband, which he does with Micheletto's help.

  • JAG S5 EP7 Rogue

    JAG (U.S. military acronym for Judge Advocate General) is an American legal drama television show with a distinct U.S. Navy theme, created by Donald P. Bellisario, and produced by Belisarius Productions in association with Paramount Network Television (now CBS Television Studios). The first season was co-produced with NBC Productions.

    Originally perceived as a Top Gun meets A Few Good Men hybrid series, the pilot episode of JAG first aired on NBC on September 23, 1995, but the series was later canceled on May 22, 1996, after finishing 79th in the ratings, leaving one episode unaired. Rival network CBS picked up the series for a midseason replacement, beginning on January 3, 1997. For several seasons, JAG climbed in the ratings and was on the air for nine additional seasons. JAG furthermore spawned the hit series NCIS, which in turn spun off NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans.

    In total, 227 episodes were produced over 10 seasons. At the time of the original airing of its fifth season in the United States, JAG was seen in over 90 countries worldwide. JAG entered syndication early in 1999.


    The series follows the exploits of the Washington metropolitan area–based "judge advocates" (i.e. uniformed lawyers) in the Department of the Navy’s Office of the Judge Advocate General, who in the line of duty can prosecute and defend criminal cases under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (arising from the global presence of the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps), conducting informal and formal investigations, advising on military operational law and other associated duties.

    Akin to Law & Order, the plots from many episodes were often "ripped from the headlines" with portions of the plot either resembling or referencing recognizable aspects of actual cases or incidents; such as the USS Cole bombing ("Act of Terror" and "Valor"), the rescue of downed pilot Scott O'Grady ("Defensive Action"), the Cavalese cable car disaster ("Clipped Wings"), the USS Iowa turret explosion ("Into the Breech"), and the Kelly Flinn incident ("The Court-Martial of Sandra Gilbert").

    While not part of the mission of its real-world counterpart, some of the main characters are at times also involved, directly and indirectly, in various CIA intelligence operations; often revolving around the recurring character, CIA officer Clayton Webb (played by Steven Culp).

    92 7 "Rogue" Tony Wharmby Larry Moskowitz November 9, 1999 092

    The DoD has hired a retired SEAL to test physical security arrangements; his methods are extreme. He captures a submarine and takes her to sea. They feint an attack on NYC. Bud serves as the official observer; Harm lends a hand. Gunny meets resistance and resentment.

    On the television show JAG the ship was used multiple times. It was used in season 3 episode "Tiger, Tiger", where USS John A. Moore played the part of a fictional frigate USS Stockdale (FFG-62). In the season 5, episode 7 "Rogue" the ship played the fictional frigate USS Ellyson (FFG-19). In the TV show N.C.I.S. Episode 24 in Season 3 the ship is seen listed on a video monitor as FFG-19 when the Cape Fear Container Ship blows up.

    The irony of this is one of the ships missing from the Turkish Navy was formerly the USS John A. Moore. Has the Turkish rendition Gediz been diverted to launch a missile? Was the JAG episode a harbinger of things to come? Watch and see.

    At this time of course the Turkish ships are accounted for, but back at the time did we blow the whistle on some covert action to start a bigger broader war?

    Beyond Westworld was a short-lived 1980 television series that carried on the stories of the two feature films, Westworld and Futureworld. It featured Jim McMullan as Security Chief John Moore of the Delos Corporation. The story revolved around John Moore having to stop the evil scientist, Quaid, as he planned to use the robots in Delos to try to take over the world. Despite being nominated for two Emmys (Outstanding Achievement In Makeup, and Outstanding Art Direction For A Series), only five episodes were produced, and only three of them were aired before cancellation.

    Judith Chapman's character Laura Garvey was supposed to be John Moore's companion for the series. Chapman was replaced by Connie Sellecca in the second episode. Sellecca had just come off a successful run as an airline stewardess in the TV series Flying High.

    This episode was never aired. It was the final episode as well.

    2. History of the subcutaneous microchip

    The subcutaneous microchip is not a brand new invention; it's been worked on for more than 30 years, as the testimony of Dr. Sanders shows.

    Dr. Carl W. Sanders is an electronics engineer and an inventor who worked for many governmental organizations and companies such as IBM, General Electric, Honeywell and Teledyn. For 32 years, he worked in the bio-medical field, focusing on microchips.

    In 1968, he takes part to a research project regarding a "spinal bridge" in order to heal a lady whose spine had been severely injured. The goal was to find a solution to link the motor nerves etc...

    After spending $1.5 millions in that purpose, it was found that the two places of the human body where temperature changes more quickly are the forehead (just down the hairline) and the back of the hand.

    As it had been noticed that the microchip's frequency changes had some effects on the patient's behaviour once the microchip had been implanted in the body, "one" oriented the researches on the possibility to modify human behaviour with the help of the microchip. The microchip could broadcast a signal stimulating different parts of the brain. It was possible, by example, to raise the adrenaline rate, which caused a change of behaviour...

    Furthermore, according to the discoveries made by Carl Sanders and his team, birth control can be implemented through the use of the chip. The chip stops the production of hormones in the area of the pituitary gland, which causes an instant menopause. This was studied in India and in other parts of the world. The ultimate purpose of the powers controlling the world is to reduce the global population of 90% : a size that is easier to control, according to them.

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an American television series broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968. It follows secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who work for a secret international counter espionage and law and enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles.

    The series centered on a two-man troubleshooting team working for U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement): American Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), and Soviet Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum). Leo G. Carroll played Alexander Waverly, the British head of the organization (Number One of Section One). Barbara Moore joined the cast as Lisa Rogers in the fourth season.

    The series, though fictional, achieved such cultural prominence that props, costumes and documents, and a video clip are in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's exhibit on spies and counterspies. Similar U.N.C.L.E. exhibits are in the museums of the Central Intelligence Agency and other US agencies and organizations gathering intelligence.

    U.N.C.L.E.'s adversary was T.H.R.U.S.H. (W.A.S.P. in the pilot movie - not to be confused with the World Aquatic Security Patrol from Gerry Anderson's Stingray). The original series never divulged what T.H.R.U.S.H. represented, but in several U.N.C.L.E. novels by David McDaniel, it is the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity,described as founded by Col. Sebastian Moran after the death of Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls in the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Final Problem".

    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.

    Caine shows a recently blinded preacher, Serenity Johnson (John Carradine), how to rely on his other senses. Serenity, in turn, uses his new awareness to persuade Caine's closed-minded grandfather to accept the wandering monk.
