PROJECT BLUE BOOK – Season 1 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
Mimi Hynek (Laura Mennell) and Susie Miller (Ksenia Solo) speak to anonymous, apparently federal, agents outside Donna and Jack’s house
The official explanation for the 1952 UFO sightings over Washington D.C. was a temperature inversion. At least they didn’t blame it on plovers. In the show’s fictionalization of events, the UFOs themselves are depicted accurately. In D.C. in 1952, there were a great many unidentified objects that flew with great maneuverabililty and speed.

Does he know more about mermaids than he’s saying? Also, Dr. Abbott (Patrick Gallagher), when asked to keep his treatment of Chris quiet, asks if it has anything to do with the girl Ben called him about twice before. The doctor also might know more about mermaids than he is letting on. And it seems that Helen (Rena Owen) might be a mermaid who has been on land for a very long time. Continue reading →
