    The keyfob - it's an aftermarket unit. You know, like how you can buy aftermarket car starters and all that? it's an aftermarket door unlocker (with possible trunk release). They usually are just solenoids or something and this one pulled the trunk release open.

    Perhaps a stronger spring was mounted so when the release was pulled, the trunk opens automatically - given how if you unlatch the trunk, unless there's electric assistance, the trunk doesn't open. So unlatching the trunk forces it open. The trunk opening turns on the trunk light, which powers the inverter that drives the garage door opener and pulls the trigger. Both of those happen simultaneously and the trigger remains pulled while the system is on.

    I was watching it and thinking "cool" and went to check it's show date and saw it as a rr also. It was fun to see the gang though.

    On the podcast discussing the final show, Vince stated that it was a 12 volt garage door opener and he also said that the props department actually built the thing exactly as you saw it...the only difference was that they used blanks in the gun.

    IOW, if you know what you're doing, that contraption can be put together and would work exactly as shown.

    Perhaps one reason the trunk lid opened was well, ventilation? A gun like that could overheat quite easily in the enclosed trunk - opening the lid would ensure reliable operation for the entire magazine as it's no longer enclosed but partially ventilated.

    I thought this was old news. I certainly knew this a while ago, but it's good, nonetheless.

    I also wouldn't expect to see casting news for a spinoff show in the thread about the series finale!

    Isn't this supposed to be the BB thread that would not die? :)

    See Post #498 and #501.

    The Lost finale still wins that one. We still have posts in it once in a while.

    I think you got your wires crossed. It's a Lost reference, not a BTTF one!
