Those crazy Precog boys are heading home and they’re going to land in a whole heap of trouble. “Minority Report” is heading back to Fiddler’s Neck — the technology-free island the Precogs took refuge in after Pre-Crime ended. To do so, the series is going to take a page from another well-known show.
Speaking To Zap2it and a small handful of outlets on the set of “Minority Report,” star Nick Zano (Arthur) teases, “Stark [Sands (Dash)] and I call it our ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ episode. We get to go back to a place that’s not the future. It’s a place that’s a refuge where people hide from the future.”
Just because the future has yet to reach Fiddler’s Neck doesn’t mean there’s no trouble to be found.
“There’s moments in this episode that are straight out of a ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ episode,” Sands says. “For instance, we jump into somebody else’s pick-up truck and peel off into the sunset. There’s a moment where we go into a tobacco shed and get locked in a cage.”
“It’s almost like taking the gang back in time,” Zano jokes.
As for who’s who, when comparing “Minority Report” to “Dukes of Hazzard,” Sands has it all worked out. “I am Bo, he is Luke and Vega is Daisy,” he says before quickly changing his mind. “No, Agatha is Daisy!”
What he couldn’t do is figure out who is the Boss Hogg of this episode.
“Minority Report” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
