At the beginning of the episode, Holly
calls Cha-ka a chicken. She should have called him an
iguana, as we learned in "Babysitter".
Cha-ka admonishes against going down the river in the canoe
because "...no one always come back." Which Will corrects
him, "you mean no one never comes back." Uh, no, Will...that
would be "no one ever comes back." Did you forget
the rule against double negatives in English?
Speaking of the river, is this the same one as seen in
"Downstream"? If so, the Marshalls should already know that
the river just loops around on itself. In fact, given the
closed-universe nature of the Land of the Lost, all rivers
would basically do the same!
Cha-ka and Will make references to "Nice Day", discussing
the time they went fishing together.
At 2:18 on the DVD as Meddy is clearing debris from the
river, it is obvious that the river is actually flowing
through a man-made trough or aqueduct of some kind. I
suppose it could be a remnant of Altrusian (or other)
It is obvious the Medusa is wearing
lifeless rubber snakes for hair.
Holly doesn't seem surprised to meet a strange woman in the
At 7:51 on the DVD, Meddy pours two glasses for herself and
her reflection. When she picks up her glass, as the camera
angle changes, the second glass is gone! Is it because her
reflection picked it up on the other side of the mirror?
|From Holly's words,
Jefferson Davis Collie III, the rebel soldier of the U.S.
civil war from "Downstream", was intercepted by Medusa at
some point between then and this episode and became a
permanent fixture in her garden. The statue used as a set
piece here does not really look much like him though.
|I suppose it's because I'm a
guy that I noticed this, but from 14:03-14:10 on the DVD, it
appears that Marion Thompson, the actress playing Meddy, is
not wearing a bra and her areolae can be vaguely seen
through the white fabric of her gown!
Jack is unable to see his reflection in Meddy's magic
mirror (like when Meddy's reflection got mad and refused to
show for her). Would his own alter-ego reflection have
eventually popped up if he had looked at the mirror long
How did Medusa become trapped in the Land of the Lost?
