Re: Episode 324 - THE LADY AND THE MOUNTAIN LION

The twins were Alyce and Rhea Andrece. Their birth names were:
Alice Rhae Bielfeldt
Rhae Alice Bielfeldt

I'm assuming the parents weren't expecting twins!

Re: Episode 226 - HER BROTHER’S KEEPER

The ending of this episode makes me so sad/mad - there was no reason for Claire to leave. I'm sure Ben would have gladly arranged for care for Carl. Claire and Ben were a lovely couple.

Re: Episode 63 - THE SECRET

Yeah, I thought the main plot point - Jerome masquerading as Joe - was weak. It only worked (initially) because the witness didn't see Jerome's face. And Betty May was a catch! The daughter of a banker, and she was pretty to boot (although they acted like she was plain.) I don't understand why her s...

Re: Episode 90 - THE WOOING OF ABIGAIL JONES

Watched this again yesterday.

Were they really p...

Re: Episode 131 - THE THUNDER MAN

Something I didn't notice the first few times I saw it, actually, is how did the father recognise Poole when he went in to help carry him to the wagon? Surely he never actually saw Poole, he did hear him whistling, but as soon as Poole came into the room the father knew it was him! How?! :no When P...

Just guessing, but I imagine that when a script was submitted it would have a title.

Re: Episode 361 - A MATTER OF CIRCUMSTANCE

Regarding "the scream", specifically regarding the Season 11 US DVD release: Andy Klyde explained why it isn't on the new release. The "digitally restored" video is taken from original 35mm film. BUT the audio is taken from the soundtrack from the version earlier restored in 1988...
