One thing I'd like to say about this episode:

Dean Stockwell was sad that QL never got to do an environmental storyline. But they did, and this is it. These days, developers grabbing farmland (by fair means or foul) and paving it over is a major environmental issue. Loss of farmland changes water flows, causing floods (we're seeing a lot of that here in PA). Loss of wildlife habitat and open space. Increases in the number of people who live in distant suburbs and make long, wasteful commutes to work.

They didn't recognize this when they made the episode, as that kind of awareness wasn't mainstream yet. But I enjoy thinking of it that way.

As far as The Leap Home, there is a similar feel because it's set in the same place so it's another small-town tale, but the storyline is quite different.
