The show frequently has the military using Metric distances. The military during WWII were still using customary units (feet, yards, and miles). However, these were military scientists, who would have indeed used metric. See more »

Very good drama, great productions values, and a few twists
10 December 2014 | by echobabe-876-874706See all my reviews

Viewed the first season over the past week on Hulu. Started out a bit boring, then a few sub plots were introduced that seemed pointless at first. But wow!! By the last 2-3 episodes I couldn't stop watching. The character development is very slow, and we are shown the worst of everyone first, it seems. As the show progresses, we see almost everyone has some redeeming humanity (and secrets, always secrets). The backdrop of all this is the cinematic paradise of the American Southwest circa 1940, and a war story that we all know how it ends. I feel like I was invited on a blind date, only to find by the end that I have made all kinds of new friends. I hope to hear WGN is going ahead with season 2.
