TIME TUNNEL: B-eB aired on Flag Day 1958; viewers may have heard the #1 song: "The Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley. Mike Bedard 5/19/16. //
Della asks Paul "How'd you like to take me to dinner?" Oh, the look on Paul's face when she says in a seductive voice "Of course we'll have to make a detour on the way." Then his popped-balloon look when she tells him "I have to pick up a dress for Diana Reynolds." I got a chuckle out of that scene. Kilo 10/1/2019.
The scene with the murderess attempting to flee in the jeep is odd. The back of the jeep is covered with what appears to be a blanket so we can’t see what’s behind the jeep. If the jeep were moving, I’m afraid this blanket would be blowing all over the place, but it doesn’t. My only explanation for this rather odd device is that there was some reason they couldn’t do rear-screen projection. Submitted by billp, 29 October 2009.
+ Upon further viewing, it appears that the blanket is attached to back of a square frame not only at the top, but at the sides as well when we see it leave the farm as the police gives chase. This would account for it not flapping around in the wind, but its purpose is rather mysterious save for the obvious explaination that they didn’t shoot a “plate” for the background, saving a bit of time and money.

Although this episode has a feel-good ending, it seems to me that Matthew Bartlett deserved to know the truth about Bobby. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 4-28-2014.
Feel good, true, but I think that there would be no way even then to keep the truth about Bobby from Matthew Bartlett. The law would have insisted on it. Submitted by MikeReese, 8/16/2014.
All in all, one of the tidiest plots in the series, but I, too, question Perry’s decision about Bobby. Bobby, for practical purpose, was orphaned. Seems the wiser resolution would be to give Bartlett the chance to adopt him. DOD 07/06/20
