Cube," first aired 1958-02-24, had Superman convincing the controllers

emerge a bit too early from the titular enclosure.
The 1960s ITC television series "The Prisoner" included an episode

the fraudulent nature of a Poland-to-England escape upon hearing "Big
Ben" chiming on Polish local time.
The series "Seinfeld" included an episode entitled "The Susie," first

zones?" was a $32,000 question on the 2001-05-23 United States airing of

question should have been asked 2002-06-04.

"We're been using the five-cent nickle in this country since 1492.

cannot be killed by a fish...So most Americans remain on land, believing
they're safe. Unfortunately, this belief&mdash;like so many myths, such as that
there's a reason for 'Daylight Saving Time'&mdash;is false."
(Dave Barry column, 2000-07-02)
"I once had sex for an hour and five minutes, but that was on the day
