Blast from the Past

Factual error: After some tinkering with a TV set and a mirror, Calvin Webber finds that he can watch a TV show in reverse image. On the screen is the opening of "The Honeymooners" showing the cast members' names superimposed on a picture of the moon, with Jackie Gleason's face. But the picture is in color, mostly blue and off-white, while the actual "Honeymooners" series was filmed in black-and-white.

Question: At the end they talk about how Eve was from Ukraine, wouldn't Calvin still be pissed since that was part of the USSR?

Answer: Not necessarily. Most Soviet bloc states were not members by choice. The Ukraine especially was grievously harmed by Russia and the Soviets.
