Did You Know?


The typewriter used for the telegram in the "Atomic City" episode is an IBM Correcting Selectric II that was not in production until 1973. See more »


The Christy pit, i.e. the plutonium core stolen from the weapons test site, would no longer be usable after being buried in the ground for 55 years due to the short half-life of polonium (138.376 days) in the nuclear initiator. In order for nuclear fission to take place, the bomb needs a neutron source and a Christy pit has, in its center, a beryllium/polonium initiator that starts the fission reaction after the core is compressed by an implosion forcing the plutonium to a super-critical state. Without an initiator, the pit would be useless and, by the same token, an expired pit due to the polonium decaying to the point where it could not produce a sufficient injection of neutrons.

Wyatt Logan: [having saved Judith from Flynn] Okay, she is hiding something.
Lucy Preston: What she is hiding is that she is Kennedy's mistress.
Rufus Carlin: Seriously?
Lucy Preston: For the last two years. And Sam Giancana's mistress.
Wyatt Logan: The mob boss?
Lucy Preston: Yes. Remember the plot to kill Castro I told you about? She is the one that delivers messages from JFK to the mob. Not a lot of people know her name, but she is at the dead center of 1960s politics.
Rufus Carlin: Okay, this is some real Oliver Stone stuff right here.

Almost great, but not quite!
18 October 2016 | by lbkeller-00381See all my reviews

I loved the realistic setting in the Sands hotel, and hearing the vocals of Sinatra and Martin were terrific. The costumes looked time-appropriate, as did the vehicles. There was one historical mistake. When shortly after landing near Vegas, it was stated that the atomic tests were being run by the U.S. Dept. Of Energy. The problem is that this dept. wasn't created until 1977. I love the settings of the show so far, and the concept of time travel is fascinating. In this episode, the focus on Judith Campbell was an interesting angle. The way that the writers have tackled significant historical events with the premise of the show (the inability to alter history) has been really interesting. The three main characters have been very good so far, and I look forward to future episodes.
