Episode discussion for: 01x03 | Eight Bells (Oct 11, 2012)

I'm looking forward to this episode, this may be my new favorite show. Sorta like the movie "Seven Days in May" which is a 1964 overthrow-the-government classic.

BTW: JFK wanted the movie "Seven Days in May" to be made because he thought it would be a good warning to the country. President Eisenhower also warned the country in a 1959(?) speech about the dangers of the Military Industrial Complex.

Hey guytwo...I think it was probably guns. In the beginning there was a reference made to all of the illegal activity Serrat was famous for and I believe gun running was mentioned. If you look at the shape of the boxes they were handling also, that would be my guess.

The title of this episode is a little strange. I know that the time Serrat gave them was crucial to what happened, but it was 9 hours, not 8. Eight bells actually designates a four hour period. I guess the writers just tried to come up with a nautical term related to time.
