* CutLexLuthorACheck: Dr. Hale's supposed gasoline additive is actually a explosive three times more powerful than Nitroglycerin and can be made from common chemicals. He concocts an elaborate scheme to defraud the government rather than just selling his new, cheap, explosive that is vastly more powerful than Nitroglycerin. Of course, this makes perfect sense when you inevitably realize as the movie goes on that Dr. Hale is kind of an idiot.

* TotallyRadical: Ben is full of TheSeventies slang. During "Smithereens" (the first "half" of ''Riding With Death''), Ben goes double duty with tons of trucker CB lingo.

* MisappliedPhlebotinum: Sure it doesn't boost mileage, but what military wouldn't want such a potent explosive?

* MisappliedPhlebotinum: Why did everyone totally give up on Tripolidine? Sure it doesn't really boost mileage, but what military wouldn't want such a potent explosive?

* MadeOfExplodium: Tripolodine, mere drops of which form an explosive violent enough to knock papers off of a desk. The riffers at {{MST3K}} question the InformedAttribute of tripolodine, stating they weren't sure that would have taken out the ''whole town''. Maybe singe the side of a bed-and-breakfast inn.

Most mid-70s action series with a lifespan that short would quickly fade into obscurity. However, a [[CompilationMovie TV movie compiled from two episodes of the show]] entitled ''Riding with Death'' was released five years later and continued to run on television for many years. The episodes used were series premiere "Smithereens" along with "Buffalo Bill Rides Again", the latter of which didnít air in the US network run, and are linked via the common themes of vehicles MadeOfExplodium and country singer Jim Stafford. The movie itself was featured on a 1997 episode of ''MysteryScienceTheater3000,'' introducing it to another generation and ensuring it maintained its notoriety.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: The show states that Sam has ''thirteen hours'' to get to Long Beach, California. Establishing shots would place INTERSECT headquarters in Torrance, California. They're twenty minutes apart in good traffic, and even in the worst California highway traffic, it might take him an hour. However, later in the episode (first half of the movie), Doctor Hale mentions they're passing through Cedarville. Cedarville, California is in ''Northern'' California, and ''eleven hours'' away from Long Beach.

Granted, there is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it line establishing that they have to go out of their way to pick up some extra equipment in another town, but even so it still doesn't make sense, since Cedarville is 11 hours from Long Beach.Beach...
