The only civilian "hand-held" GPS units in 1990 were the Magellan NAV 1000 and the Voyager Loran C. They were about 9 inches by 5 inches and thick. All they could do was receive, and that by logging into three satellites, one at a time, and then calculating the data for an approximate location. They did not transmit.

The "beepers " police used to track cars, etc. were small short-range radio transmitters - no GPS, you had to follow them (ground or air) with a receiver. So, not only impossible in 1990, but almost literally unimaginable. Also, in 1990 the US government, which controlled the GPS satellites, degraded the location accuracy for civilian use until 1999.

Hmmmm, It could've been much better
26 February 2019 | by MoistMoviesSee all my reviews

Whats frustrating with this season finale and the couple episodes proceeding it. Is you can see the potential - story wise, for something much more interesting and engaging.

I thought the slow pace in the middle of the season, would then eventually ramp up to a final climax. In the style of season one. I had convinced myself they were going with the same formula again yet making it their own by focusing more on character development. Instead it just stuck to the character focused story the entire way through.

I Cant fault the acting. It gets 3 of the 6 stars I've given. The other 3 come from cinematography and other production qualities - and the emotionally engaging themes on display - loss of self - kinship with those around you and rebirth (when considering the girl finding a new life).

But the story ultimately was left on the back burner unfortunately. And when you can clearly see 20 mins from the last 3 episodes and 40 mins from the finale could've been something entirely different to make a more compelling story, while keeping all of what i mentioned in the last paragraph still intact. Its just a shame to see the missing potential. This Season could've stood next to season one as equal. Even without linking the two together like many commenters wanted. It could've done its own thing, while still being very engaging and compelling.

Over all, the entire season is a 7 for me. And thats my generous rating. If i was being more critical in the lack of thought provoking story, it'd be a 6- 6 1/2.
