Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • Right after the first commercial cliffhanger, Torch captures Snake-Eyes. A quick cutaway shows Zap and Snake-Eyes running when it should be Zap and Spirit.
  • Scarlett sits in the front seat with Wild Bill when she gets rescued from the gangs. Yet when Wild Bill says "did you see that? I'm a'heading that way, pardners," Scarlett is missing. Then in the next shot she is once again sitting in the front with Wild Bill.

Continuity errors

  • Torch shoots two bolts off the top of a fire-escape, sending it crashing down with Snake-Eyes, Spirit and Zap entangled in it. By fire code, fire-escapes are supposed to be attached to buildings at multiple points, not just one.
  • If the Joes know that Extensive Enterprises are frequent collaborators of the Cobra organization, why do they escort Robert Harper to their building?
  • Extensive Enterprises Tower is "the tallest building in the world" per RAH continuity, yet Scarlett and Lady Jaye climb to the top of the building in minutes.
  • The Crimson Twins drop Scarlett and Lady Jaye off the building, at which point Scarlett grabs a ledge and swings inside an open window (whaaaaaaaat?). In the next scene, Lady Jaye grabs one of the earlier cords and Xamot prepares to drop her again. Scarlett saves the day by kicking him from behind through an open window (whaaaaaaat?). Not only are open windows on skyscrapers apparently a regular occurrence here, but Scarlett also manages to get down 10 flights of stairs in 5 seconds.
  • Tomax and Xamot fall about 10 stories into a garbage container at the base of EE Tower. Needless to say, no amount of garbage cushioning their fall would have saved the twins from being very dead.
  • Wouldn't local police be better equipped to handle the gangs? After all, they presumably have a database on gang activity and would be more familiar with the members and their known associates and addresses.
    • On the other hand, it is Enterprise City, which seems to have a strong Cobra presence; the local police may have been bought off by Cobra.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Buzzer says that he is illiterate, which is odd considering his filecard says he was once a sociology professor.
  • Lady Jaye uses explosive javelins in this episode.
  • Firefly's detonator looks a lot like the synthoid controller from "The Synthoid Conspiracy."

Real-world references

  • No references.
