What's the point of having a comic book inspired show if we don't find references to the comic world. So what comic book reference do we have today?

Well, it looks like Goggles is comic book fan.

Goggles giving Hicks the signal to shoot the guy in Afghanistan: "Goggles to Hicks. The hamster is in the microwave"

"Hamster in the Microwave" is an interactive Macromedia Flash game created by The Joe Cartoon Co.. Watch as a very rude hamster insults you while he's in your microwave. There's only one thing to do.....turn on the microwave. See what happens to this rude little hamster."

The comic book Peter Fleming gives Goggles is issue 1.06 just like the episode of the show.

Later on the show , Goggles said to Hickks : "Isn't this fun? Its' like we're the legion of doom and we're taking out the superfriends one by one...Hum, nothing like eating a box of cereal and watching "Hong Kong Phooey"".

Quote (Wikipedia)
The Legion of Doom is a group of supervillains led by Lex Luthor that appeared in Challenge of the Super Friends, an animated series that starred superheroes from DC Comics.

In each episode that they appeared, the Legion of Doom would enact various plots against the Super Friends, only to be met with defeat by the end of the story. Often, however, they would escape capture through a last-minute escape plan.

I can't resist showing you a clip of "Hong Kong Phooey":

Seems like nbc is allowing me to watch the episode with my Swedish IP on their homepage. I thought that was only for Americans

That is curious...

I've never been a fan of websites locking videos. Kind of makes it hard to build a fanbase when only a select group can view the videos...

What video are you talking about? In the case it's about the "Smallville" video i uploaded, two days ago, it was not locked in my mind but could be viewed from this wiki only because the only purpose of the video is to illustrate the article. It never came to my mind it could bring youtube viewers to this site. I'm a newbie at uploading videos to youtube and don't know the customs. Feel free to enlighten me if necessary.
Sorry for the rambling if your remark not directed to me.

Exactly! Then they decided to title each episode according to the-villain-of-the-week's name.

About the episode titles; 7 and 8 are called The Lich, part 1 and 2. But do we know the name of the others episodes?
I think 1.10 was supposed to be" Endgame" but must have changed since; 1.11 (not to be produced) was called "Game of chess".

I was referring to NBC (and many other sites) locking videos so that people outside the US can't view them. It's an annoying practice that a lot of websites have taken up.

According to Norman at S-G.net, episodes 5 and 6 can be viewed by people outside of the US. Definitely curious...

According to Spoilertv :
"Episode 1.10 is called "3:10 to Whitsec."
In this episode there is Layla, a tyical tween who is whisked away to safety when her family is threatened. Did I mention shes the son of traitor Marty?
Also in this episode is Layla's brother C.J, younger and a curious boy."

Btw, this title seems to be a mix of the western's title "3:10 to Yuma" and the U.S. Witness Security Program (WITSEC).

I hope the last episode of the show won't focus on Marty and his children. I'm bored.

Hicks talking to Vince at the bar : "Everything there is to know about Vince Faraday...who your family is...who your friends are"

Hicks looked at Orwell in a creepy way; but foremost it looks like Goggles and Hicks discovered Orwell's identity. The scenes describing the discovery must have beencut at editing.

Who's secret identity wanted Orwell to protect when she revealed Hicks where Goggles was : Vince's, hers or both ?

Hicks : "I see who wears the cape in this releationship" LOL

Vince's answer was lame though.

Sorry , me speak not very well english smile

Vince did not give Orwell an answer, you're right. I meant to say his threats to Hicks were lame.
Remember the old western gimmick ? "This town ain't big enough for the both of us and I'm going to give you 24 hours to get out."

When Hicks said to Vince at the bar, "My brother and i can keep secrets, Mr Faraday", i don't think the word "brother" is to be taken literally; rather like in a fraternity like the freemasons. In this case, the fraternity is the secret society called Tarot.
