I've my DVD's but I don't be able to read it on my computer currently.
I have to waiting a new battery.
But I would like to follow you in your analysis and share with everybody on this topic too.
Oh Yes Kate, I think that "non-Americans" can to understand some references... And we know about Nikola TeslaKateR wrote:
And "poor" Thomas Edison is going to get referenced later in the series as well. Bartok is based on Nikola Tesla, who really did have a feud with Thomas Edison.
I think you'll enjoy the references in later episodes to other real historical figures (President Grant, George Custer, Wild Bill Hickok...) I have wondered if non-Americans have been able to "get" some of the clever references and plot twists if they didn't grow up learning about these characters.
Of course, in France, "Legend" was never broadcast but when we love Richard, we know his love for Nicodem; as a family, we are learning his legend in "Legend" ...We will learn to distinguish the subtleties references gradually.
Thank to you both, Nico and Kate for your work about this marvelous serie...
