I don't know... again, the evidence of that one window being replaced is there in the actual episode, though the viewer must pay attention. But more important, adding more expositionary/explanatory detail isn't really furthering the plot at all. I suspect that's why the 'reseal the window' line was deleted, too.
You do seem to find a lot 'laughable' with this series and its flaws, and as some of us have already pointed out, the series is certainly not without faults. I suppose the series is MST3K-worthy (they did do one of the Season 2 compilation 'movies,' as I recall), but that's not what most of us watch the show for. Just sayin'.
To clarify: I'm not saying one can't have a difference of opinion nor vocalise criticism, but this forum isn't exactly a 'bashing' site, so there may not be much agreement, and certainly not much willingness to keep discussions in that vein. Pointing out faults and coming up with solutions to them has always occurred, and as far as I'm concerned, shall always continue (using myself as an example, I've often made known my dislike for Season 2, but I've also pointed out some of its better points). But bear in mind that most members here have a love for this series, warts and all.
It's not so much laughable as what I thought to be rather glaring mistakes. And I was curious to know what others thought about them--supporting one side or another. Certainly given how long ago the series aired and how long this forum has been around, I figured it must have been discussed before, but that's either rolled off the archives or difficult to find. I've learned a lot from the responses I got here.
Despite the flaws, I watched the show and enjoyed it as a teenager. I was mesmerized by the spacecraft and devices on the series, especially the Eagle. Brian Johnson did a wonderful job of making it feel real. :thumbup: And those Mark IX Hawks were stunning--wish they could have gotten more screen time, and some close-ups.
Anyway, I'm very late to the activity here... It looks like many people here have gone through kit building and modding of the Eagle and then onto other things. I'm hoping to either find a used PE version in decent shape, or a kit that I can build this coming fall. Or... even some mods I could possibly do to my old AMT Eagles. :-/
