Trivia

It was originally intended for Claire's friend Zach eventually to be revealed as gay, and to have his coming out serve as a parallel to Claire's coming to terms with her secret abilities. However, when the manager for Thomas Dekker (the actor who played Zach) discovered that this development was in store for the character, she first insisted that a line identifying Zach as gay be deleted from a script, and then pulled Dekker from the show altogether. Producer and writer Bryan Fuller gave an interview in April 2007 in which he explained that Dekker "was up for the John Connor role in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008) and [the manager] didn't want him playing a gay character because it might affect Fox's interest in hiring him. It got really ugly." Fuller also said that through Zach's last appearances on the show, "in all of our minds, the character was still gay but we couldn't say it explicitly." Several lines remain in the series in which other characters refer to Zach as gay, but it remains ambiguous as to whether they know something the audience doesn't, or are simply making derogatory insinuations.

First time I've been dying til the following episode in years...
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't actually recall the last time I was so literally addicted to the show. I don't get home until about 9:40 on Mondays, so it's torture until we can watch it on the laptop. And we willingly watch every commercial with glee to get to the good stuff. I am really impressed by the multi-media approach NBC takes with this - give addicts like myself (who used to maybe watch 5 hours of TV a WEEK) a constant source of intellectual stimulation, while shamelessly promoting the show. But it's so good, who cares!?! There are character blogs & the comic book on the site has hidden links to it that even incorporate the characters as real people, with real blogs on NBC and even on myspace, with fake character friends AND real people as friends. Put fans in the actual drama. There are SO many hidden clues and homages in the episodes, you can watch them over and over and not catch them all.
