The Show

  • The movie which Ironside and Mark are watching on the plane during the flight is the 1967 Don Knotts feature comedy The Reluctant Astronaut, which was produced by Ironside producer Universal Television's parent company Universal Pictures (although Ironside is not listening to the movie's soundtrack channel, but to music on another audio channel)
