Don't know if you've watched the episode yet, but the odometer on the car that the Captain and Hynek were in when the UFO passed over had something over 79000 miles on it. Whether that was a real picture of the actual speedometer or not is up for debate.

Maybe in my old age my mind is slowing down or something, but the entire program seems to be a little disjoint to me. You pretty much have to watch it again to see how all the different scenes tie together.

I have a feeling that the roads in Lubbock were a little dusty in 1951. The interstate was pretty dusty when I was driving through there in the 1990s and 2000s.

Most of the time I was on I-40 north of there through Amarillo. If you ever want to see a very large stock yard do a Google Earth of Wildorado which is 19 miles west of Amarillo on I-40. The pens look like fields until you zoom in and then you see many, many, cows. It probably wasn't aliens they saw down in Lubbock; it was probably the swamp gas from the backsides of all those cows!

The first family car we had that I remember was a 1952 Chevrolet, much like the ones seen in Project Blue Book. It was dark green.

I had a dark blue 1952 Plymouth that I paid $25 for! It lasted me two years and was still running strong when I sold it for $100 and bought a 1955 Chevy.

Unfortunately when I got my Cutlass, I didnt know you had to check and maintain the oil level in the engine, so it didnt last too long! Engine seized up after about 6 months.

I'm not certain the AF Captain in this person is playing the role of a real person. I think there were several military officers in the Project Sign, Project Grudge, and Project Blue Book eras. It was only in the 3rd program that the guy in the program mentioned his name that I noticed. Maybe he's playing sort of a composite role, a mixture of all the other military men. Also, the 4-star general who's leading the coverup ... never have heard his name, so I don't know if he's playing Nathan Twining or not.

It's one of the few programs I look foward to watching each week, but it's a subject that's always intrigued me.

I'm still liking it after three episodes. Definitely a strong X-Files vibe, which is fin with me.

I was a little bored with Ep 3. but maybe it was because I was distracted by other things while it was on. Ill have to rewatch before the weekend is over.
