    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.

    13 13 "The Stone" Robert Butler A. Martin Zweiback April 12, 1973 

    A Brazilian skilled in the capoeira fighting style of his homeland accuses Caine of stealing a diamond. Street urchins offer Caine their savings of $4.08 if he'll kill an Armenian saloon piano player who jilted their mother.

  • Timecop S01E03 Stalker

    Timecop is an American science fiction television series. The show was broadcast on the ABC network and first aired in 1997. The series is based on the successful Jean-Claude Van Damme film, Timecop (1994) from Universal Studios, which was in turn inspired by the Dark Horse comic of the same name. Thirteen episodes of the series were ordered, but only nine episodes aired.

    In 1996, the Los Angeles Times reported that ABC ordered a new prime-time series based on the 1994 science-fiction movie Time Cop. The pilot was written by Mark Verheiden.

    The show was broadcast on the ABC network and first aired in 1997. The series featured an all-new cast and characters. The show focused on TEC agent Jack Logan who hunts down rogue time travelers and brings them to justice before they can alter the past.

    S1, Ep3 Stalker 6 Oct. 1997

    1956 Hollywood and an actress destined to become the mother of the 44th President of the USA is threatened by a stalker, one from her own time and one from the future. Can Logan save the day.

    It is alarming how uninteresting this episode was in every way. The plot was thin and often ridiculous. The ripper from A Rip In Time is back again already, establishing a nemesis before they even establish a format. Unfortunately, he's not all that threatening, his motivations don't hold water at all and at one point he even threatens to kill the actress with a safe hanging over her head. I mean that only works if you're the Hooded Claw or out to kill Roger Rabbit.

    Hemmings is sent back to help Logan, but does nothing except reveal a little cleavage and empty a gun. Logan himself does very little except get fooled too often and too easily. If this show is to have any chance of continuing then it needs to get a hell of a lot better in a hell of a hurry.

  • Star Trek S1 EP1 The Man Trap

    "The Man Trap" is the first season premiere of the American science fiction television series, Star Trek. Written by George Clayton Johnson and directed by Marc Daniels, it first aired on September 8, 1966.

    In the episode, the crew visit an outpost to conduct medical exams on the residents, only to be attacked by a shapeshifting alien creature seeking to extract salt from their bodies.

    This was the first Star Trek episode to air on television, although the sixth to be filmed; chosen as the first of the series to be broadcast by the studio due to the horror-based plot. "The Man Trap" placed first in the timeslot with a Nielsen rating of 25.2 percent for the first half-hour and 24.2 for the remainder. It aired two days earlier on Canadian network CTV.


    The starship USS Enterprise arrives at planet M-113 to provide medical exams for Professor Robert Crater (Alfred Ryder) and his wife Nancy (Jeanne Bal), who operate a research station there. Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Chief Medical Officer Dr. Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley), and Crewman Darnell (Michael Zaslow) transport to the surface as Kirk teases McCoy about his affection for Nancy Crater ten years earlier. They arrive in the research station, and each of the three men see Nancy differently: McCoy as she was when he first met her, Kirk as she should look accounting for her age, and Darnell as a totally different, attractive younger woman. Kirk sends the dazed Darnell outside; when Nancy goes out to fetch her husband, she beckons Darnell to follow her.

    When Professor Crater arrives, he is reluctant to be examined, telling Kirk that they only require salt tablets. Before McCoy can complete the examination, they hear a scream from outside. They find Darnell dead, with red ring-like mottling on his face and a plant root visible in his mouth; Nancy says that she was unable to stop Darnell from tasting the plant. On board Enterprise, Spock (Leonard Nimoy) analyzes the plant. He confirms that it is poisonous, but the mottling is not a symptom. McCoy conducts a medical exam, and together with Spock determines that Darnell died after all the salt was drained from his body. In response, Kirk transports back down to the planet with McCoy and two crewmen, Green (Bruce Watson) and Sturgeon (John Arndt). They spread out to search, but Crater slips away. Kirk and McCoy find Sturgeon's body. Meanwhile, unseen by them, Nancy has killed Green; the faces of Green and Sturgeon show the same mottling as Darnell. Nancy alters her shape, assuming the form of Green, and meets Kirk and McCoy. They beam back up to the ship with Sturgeon's body.

    "Green" roams the corridors, first following Yeoman Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney) into the botanical laboratory as she brings Lieutenant Sulu (George Takei) his lunch with a salt shaker. A plant in the lab shrieks and shrinks in fear at the entrance of the creature, causing alarm. The creature then moves on, attacking several crew members, killing one. It then shape-shifts into the form of McCoy. Meanwhile, Spock confirms that scans show only one person, Crater, on the planet; Kirk and Spock beam down to capture him. They find Green's body before Crater tries to frighten them away with phaser fire. After they stun him with a phaser beam, the dazed Crater reveals that his real wife was killed by the creature – the last member of a long-dead civilization of shape-shifters who feed on salt – a year earlier. The creature continues to take on the appearance of Nancy out of affection for Crater, and he has been feeding it. Kirk informs Enterprise of the creature's intrusion, as the landing party and Crater transport back to the ship.

    Crater refuses to help them identify the creature, so Kirk orders the fake "McCoy" to administer truth serum. Kirk arrives in sickbay to find Crater dead and Spock injured; Spock's Vulcan blood made him incompatible with the creature's needs. Back in its "Nancy" form, the creature goes to McCoy's quarters. Kirk arrives with a phaser to provoke the creature into attacking. McCoy gets in the way, giving the creature the opportunity to attack Kirk. The creature reverts to its natural appearance and starts to feed on Kirk. McCoy opens fire with his phaser. The creature changes back into the shape of "Nancy" to plead for its life as McCoy continues firing and kills it. As Enterprise leaves orbit, Kirk comments, with a degree of compassion, that this creature – the last of its kind – was probably not inherently evil, but simply desperate.

    In The X Files S11 EP4 The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat The Mandela Effect is dealt with. Fox remembers an episode titled The Lost Martian. We found it standing up. 


    The Twilight Zone is an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. 

    "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" is episode 64 of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on May 26, 1961 on CBS.

    Opening narration

    “ Wintry February night, the present. Order of events: a phone call from a frightened woman notating the arrival of an unidentified flying object, then the checkout you've just witnessed, with two state troopers verifying the event – but with nothing more enlightening to add beyond evidence of some tracks leading across the highway to a diner. You've heard of trying to find a needle in a haystack? Well, stay with us now, and you'll be part of an investigating team whose mission is not to find that proverbial needle, no, their task is even harder. They've got to find a Martian in a diner, and in just a moment you'll search with them, because you've just landed – in The Twilight Zone. ”


    Two state troopers, investigating a report about a UFO, find evidence something has crashed in a frozen pond: footprints in the snow from the pond lead to a nearby, isolated late-night diner called the Hi-Way. Upon arriving, the troopers find a bus parked outside the Hi-Way Cafe. Inside the Hi-Way, the troopers find a cook behind the counter named Haley, a bus driver, and his passengers.

    The troopers, Dan Perry and Bill Padgett, announce a suspected Martian from a nearby crashed UFO may be among them, and asks for everyone to identify themselves. The bus driver tells them his name is Olmstead, and states they were forced to stop at the Hi-Way Café due to the snow storm and could not go back to their previous destination because the diner was at the bottom of an icy hill. The troopers state they will have a long wait, perhaps until the morning, because the bridge ahead was been closed due to the snow storm, adding the county engineer is currently examining the bridge. “Looks like you’re stuck here,” Haley the cook says.

    The troopers ask the bus driver if has passenger manifest, at which the bus driver laughs and asks the troopers to take a look outside. “That’s a 14-year old bus, not a 707, and business is lousy.” He claims when they boarded, it was snowing, and he didn’t ask names. He counted 'six' passengers. The company gave him six, and he’s supposed to deliver six. The troopers make a quick count, and there are 'seven' passengers: Connie and George Prince, a young married couple; Rose and Peter Kramer, an older married couple; Ethel McConnell, a professional dancer; an outlandish old man with a lazy eye named Avery, and Ross, a craggy businessman. Hayley the cooks says the diner was empty due to the snow, before the bus had arrived, and these were only customers he’d had in hours.

    The troopers then ask the group, "Who wasn't on the bus,” to which Ross, the businessman, loudly responds, "We were all on the bus," and castigates the bus driver for causing this confusion by miscounting, and suggesting the troopers are from the gestapo.

    After some initial debate on how to figure this out, Ethel suggests the couples be 'cleared' on the grounds the spouses would surely know each other. Both couples readily agree but begin to eye each other with suspicion; Connie asking her husband, “George, I thought you had a mole on your chin,” and Peter becoming irritated with Rose who’d been giving him a long look.

    The troopers then ask Ethel for her ID, but she claims her ID was sent ahead with her luggage. The bus driver vouches for her, admitting that he did at least notice her when she boarded. She smiles and thanks him. Avery, clearly enjoying the hilarity of this situation, cracks jokes and chides the businessman who complains about the bus company’s unreliability; he must make an important meeting in Boston by 9am the next morning. The bus driver, not having it, shoots back to businessman that the weather is not bus company’s fault and decrees the bus will in fact not be crossing that bridge until he believes it is safe. Throughout these exchanges tension rise, and suspicions are confirmed that someone present must indeed be the Martian as the jukebox starts and stops on its own, the lights flash on and off, and the tabletop sugar dispensers explode. The troopers draw their weapons.

    The payphone then rings, bringing a report from the county engineer that the bridge is safe, and can be crossed. The bus driver asks the troopers, "Are you sure? I don't like that old bridge. She sways in the wind and is not a suspension." The troopers tell him that if the county engineer says she’s safe, she’s safe.

    Unable to hold them without evidence to the contrary, the troopers allow all seven people plus the driver to board the bus and be on their way. The troopers offer to driving ahead to make sure the bridge was safe. Everyone lines up at the cash register to settle-up with Haley, board the bus and leave.

    Sometime later, Ross returns to the diner alone, surprising Haley. "Hey," Haley says, "weren't you on that bus?" The businessman takes a seat, orders a coffee, and explains to cook that the bridge had not been safe after all: it collapsed, and everyone -- the bus, its passengers and the troopers -- had all plunged into the river and were gone. Shocked, Haley asks the businessman, “Everyone but you? Why – how could that be? You aren’t even wet.” The businessman blinks and asks, "Wet? What is . . . wet?" Haley says, “What do you mean what is wet?”

    The businessman then calmly explains who he really is, revealing a third hand from under his coat. He uses all three hands to stir his coffee and light a cigarette, of which he takes a drag and comments he’d taken “quite a liking as we don't have anything like these" on his planet. He then demonstrates, offhandedly, that everything which happened earlier -- the jukebox, the lights and the sugar dispensers -- had been illusions, including the call from the county engineer.

    "Now, before you faint dead away," the businessman says, "and you will," he tells Haley that he is in fact a Martian scout sent ahead of the Martian fleet which was on its way. Earth (or "this area"), he says, has been identified as a perfect spot for Martian colonization as it is "so remote", "so off-the-beaten path" -- and he is awaiting their arrival.

    Haley, notably, does not faint dead away. Instead, he smiles and says that he has some waiting to do himself. He agrees this planet is a prime spot for colonization, and that "we folks from Venus" determined this several years ago. Haley then informs the businessman that the Martian fleet will not be coming as the Venusian fleet has intercepted it. "Oh," the cook says, "this planet will be colonized, but by Venus . . . and if you're still alive, you will see," he reaches up to remove his hat to reveal a third eye in the center of his forehead, "just how much we differ."

    Closing narration

    “ Incident on a small island, to be believed or disbelieved. However, if a sour-faced dandy named Ross or a big, good-natured counterman who handles a spatula as if he'd been born with one in his mouth, – if either of these two entities walk onto your premises, you'd better hold their hands – all three of them – or check the color of their eyes – all three of them. The gentlemen in question might try to pull you in – to The Twilight Zone.

    The eleventh season of the American science fiction television series The X-Files premiered on January 3, 2018, on Fox. The season consists of ten episodes and concluded on March 21, 2018. It follows newly re-instated Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). The season's storyline picks up directly after last season's finale and the search for Mulder and Scully's son William is the main story arc of the season.

    Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) wakes up in the hospital after having a seizure, now realizing the events of My Struggle II were a vision and haven't actually happened yet. Mulder initially presumes Scully’s ramblings are a product of her illness but leaves the hospital to investigate. Agent Jeffrey Spender later appears at Scully’s bedside, revealing that someone is looking for William. He first balks at telling her the location of her son, revealing only the name of the family that adopted him - Van De Kamp. Mulder tails a henchman who he believes will take him to The Smoking Man, but he arrives somewhere else with mysterious conspirators; Mr. Y (A.C. Peterson) and Erika Price (Barbara Hershey). They try to negotiate with Mulder into turning over his son but Mulder refuses. Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) tries to meet with Scully, but can't find her. As he goes to his car, he is met inside by The Smoking Man and Reyes. Meanwhile, Scully tries to leave the hospital but her seizures return causing her to crash her car. She is rescued by Agent Einstein and Agent Miller, and is readmitted to the hospital. Both agents leave the room. An assassin sent by Mr. Y and Erika enters and tries to suffocate Scully, but Mulder steps in and saves her by slicing the assassin's neck. As Skinner comes in, Mulder confronts him since he smells like smoke. In a flashback to when Skinner was in the car with the Smoking Man, the latter reveals (in a further flashback to 17 years, "En Ami") that he, not Mulder, artificially impregnated Scully.

    "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat" is the fourth episode of the eleventh season of the American science fiction television series The X-Files. The episode was written and directed by Darin Morgan.

    The episode focuses on the Mandela Effect and is a self-parody of the show and recurring events.

    After turning down Scully for dinner, Mulder receives a signal to meet someone. In an underground garage, Mulder meets a man named Reggie who claims to know him. The man claims that someone is trying to erase him from society and to prove his point refers to Mulder's childhood memory of watching The Twilight Zone episode "The Lost Martian" (which in reality is non-existent), to Mulder's surprise. Scully later matches his disbelief when Reggie (now going by the last name "Something") gives her a container of a cherry-flavored Jell-O rip off brand called Goop-O A-B-C, which she remembers from her childhood.


    I found this one rather weak. The Mandela Effect is real. Introducing memory erasure as a possibility is startling, but the show would have been far more effective as a thriller than bad comedy.

    "Ubit Stalina" means to kill Josef Stalin on Russian language. This TV Mini-Series is directed by Sergey Ginzburg, known for "Once Upon a Time in Odessa". "Ubit Stalina" takes time in 1941, when Germans sent troops to invade Russia. Winter was very cold and soldiers couldn't stay on the front for a long time, so Germans decided to strike a crushing blow and cunning - to kill Josef Stalin. Leadership of the Reich created special group of officers from the team "Abwehr" "Brandenburg-800". This team helped Nazi agent to deeply embed in USSR army - Will generals of USSR army find out agent? Will they save Russia from invasion of Nazi?..

    Totally fictional mini-series set in late 1941 when the Nazi forces are at the outskirts of Moscow only to find themselves thwarted by the Soviet soldiers and an early winter. To compliment the invasion the Reich seeks to kill Joseph Stalin in the hope of striking a shattering blow to the Soviet people. This operation is the mission of a special forces unit of Abwehr officers and aided by a Nazi agent planted within the Soviet Army. But brave and resourceful officers of the USSR's Ministry of State Security stand in their way. A decent period piece that has little historical context and is basically a good detective show.

    Many a truth is spoken in jest or fiction. Imagine the plot to kill the new Stalin Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin. What lengths could they go to? What would be required to protect them?

    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.

    22 "Get Me Out of Here!" Ralph Smart Cyril Frankel 26 February 1969

    The agents rescue an eminent female scientist who has returned to her home country and been detained against her will by the dictatorship that runs it. This government wants her to do her work there, in order to gain reflected prestige from her medical discoveries.

    The Avengers is a spy-fi British television series created in 1961. The Avengers initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first series and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants. Steed's most famous assistants were intelligent, stylish and assertive women: Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), and later Tara King (Linda Thorson). Later episodes increasingly incorporated elements of science fiction and fantasy, parody and British eccentricity. The Avengers ran from 1961 until 1969, screening as one-hour episodes its entire run.

    Warlock is the eighteenth episode of the second series of the 1960s cult British spy-fi television series The Avengers, starring Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman. It originally aired on ABC on 27 January 1963. The episode was directed by Peter Hammond and written by Doreen Montgomery.


    The inventor of a new type of fuel lapses into a coma. Steed discovers that the scientist had links to black magic and the occult.


    The episode was originally intended to introduce the Cathy Gale character. But after initial production in July 1962, the episode was revamped with various scenes reshot.

    Peter Arne who played Dr. Cosmo Gallion was brutally murdered in real life bludgeoned to death. A man named Giuseppe Perusi was blamed for the crime. He committed suicide coincidentally. The actress who played Julia evaporated from the scene as well. This is an awesome episode of the entertainment industry and the cult if you live to tell the tale. Peter dies in the show as well.

    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.

    "alt.truth" is the eighth episode of the sixth season of the American television drama series Homeland, and the 68th episode overall. It premiered on Showtime on March 12, 2017.


    Saul (Mandy Patinkin) visits Carrie (Claire Danes) at her home and finds her distraught about losing her daughter. He takes Carrie to Franny's foster home and parks across the street so Carrie can see that her daughter is in good care. Saul asks a now calm Carrie to help facilitate a meeting between Majid Javadi (Shaun Toub) and President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel). At the meeting, Javadi tells Keane that Nafisi did make payments to North Korea and that there is reason to believe Iran is contravening the nuclear agreement. Carrie and Saul are blindsided, having expected Javadi to say the opposite. After Keane leaves, Saul demands answers from Javadi. Javadi admits that he aligned himself with Dar Adal, having concluded that Dar's influence in the CIA far exceeds Saul's.

    Quinn (Rupert Friend), increasingly paranoid of Astrid and Dar Adal, finds Astrid's gun in her car and empties the bullets. He also thinks he sees Astrid talking to Belli (C.J. Wilson) at the supermarket. When Quinn confronts Astrid with his suspicions and only gets denials, he punches her in the stomach and leaves to track down the neighbor, having seen his truck at a motel. However, when he stakes out the motel, he ends up attacking an innocent stranger. While Quinn apologizes to Astrid for his actions after returning, he is grazed in the head by a bullet through the window, fired by Belli. Astrid rushes out to her car to get her gun and is killed due to the gun not being loaded. The attacker targets Quinn next, hitting him in the shoulder and knocking him into the lake. He fires several shots into the water and, satisfied that Quinn must be dead, flees the scene. Quinn emerges from the water shortly thereafter.

  • Murdoch Mysteries S1 EP1 Power

    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.

    Murdoch investigates the inexplicable murder of Alice Howard, the newly crowned Miss Toronto Electric and Light, who is electrocuted by an insulated switch at a public demonstration on the dangers of alternating current. Murdoch enlists the help of Nikola Tesla in order to solve the case. Crabtree becomes romantically involved with one of the suspects, Edna Garrison.

    5 Visions That Showed Nikola Tesla Was Ahead of His Time

    Modern society owes a lot to Nikola Tesla.

    The Serbian-American scientist's inventions led to the radios and power grids used today. Over the course of his life, Tesla registered some 300 patents under his name, and traces of his inventions can be found in many modern-day devices, including in some unexpected places, such as remote-controlled boat toys and letter-shaped neon lights.

    But not all of Tesla's futuristic visions came to fruition. Some of the inventor's most far-out and ambitious dreams went unrealized, such as his vision for the wireless transmission of energy. In other cases, what Tesla invented was simply not practical enough to replace existing systems, such as the bladeless steam turbine, or was too dangerous to use, such as a steam-powered electric generator that came to be known as the "earthquake machine," after Tesla claimed the generator caused an earthquake in New York City in 1898.
