    I saw the pilot. How many ironic “eggs” must we be plastered with? Billie Burke (Oz’s Glinda) could be as aptly cast as this Billy, because it’s a hocus-pocus, hoodoo magicked resemblance of science, and a faint resemblance at that. (Which is not to say it won’t be fun to rip into goofs! For instance, a clear drink bottle would not survive as a canteen if unprotected from sunlight. Will we see locomotives and Stanley Steamers?)
