Something new every time...

It is amazing how you can see something new everytime you watch an episode. I watched the pilot again today. Here are a few new observations:

1. In the opening chase scene with the dirt bikes and police cruisers, they do a camera shot from inside the cruiser. There is a black spot in the middle of the scene. I finally figured out that it is the bracket for the rear view mirror. They removed it to shoot the scene.

2. After Jesse's surgery, he and Norman are at CC at night going over the aspects of the bike. This is the scene where he gets on the bike and gets thrown off. When they leave, Norman wants to give Jesse the leg brace. Jesse is twirling his cane. If he is with Norman at CC at night , why does he have his cane?

3. The police dept sends Marty's file through IA to be sure that he was not involved with his killers. Jesse was in the desert with him, why didn't they investigate him too?

4. When Jesse is late for the student tour, Sandy pulls him aside for a dressing down. When she is finished, he walks off - in the wrong direction. His tour is waiting the other way.

5. When Jesse and Sandy are checking the paint shops, Jesse is walking like he is wearing the brace. Norman pages him and he goes to CC. When he gets there, he is walking normally.

6. When he is chasing the bikes in the tunnel, one of the riders shoots at him. Jesse stops the bike and the bullet hits the other dirt bike. I had thought the tire was shot out. Did it hit the bag of cocaine? It took me a minute to think about this. Jesse says he can't see anything for the dust, and Norman tells him to stay still and not inhale. (Mach for President slogan - I swear I did not inhale).

That cracks me up! A glaring error the Director missed, but that strikes me as a real Jesse moment. If I didn't know better it's as if Jesse had done this on purpose! He always tried to shirk his work responsibilities! ;D

Yes, that's right. You can see a package explode and when the rider is on the ground you see white powder around him.
Excellent new observations btw Janice. Video must be a curse for many a director. Fans years on pull up what often seem quite obvious errors which they were too busy to notice.

Just another idle thought.
The scene where Jesse is flipped off the bike after the security system is activated, and Norm says, "It hasn't been programed for you yet..." it got me wondering.
Is Street Hawk programmed to acknowledge Jesse's butt cheeks or what? LMAO
How does it detect if the wrong person has got on the bike? Maybe it has some sort of palm print recognition device on the handle bars like in James Bond or something? Is the seat fitted with a delicate weighting scale so if anyone gets on who does not weight the same it activates. Jesse had better mind those coffee and donuts in that case!

Maybe he had to have a butt cheek recognition scan. Sort of like the office idiot and the copier. ;D I have always wondered about this too.

After reading this, I shook my head in quiet disbelief and said to myself "Only Dan would be capable of such a thought."

I'm trying to decide whether to take offense or not. ;)
