Trivia

During the scene in which the soldiers were shown pornographic movies in the lab, the clip of the Japanese women was taken from 'Imprint', the 13th episode of the first season. Since it was decided that 'Imprint' was too graphic for television so was not aired, this was the first time it was seen in the US before being released on DVD. See more »

Goofs

During the scene on the highway leading into Jacksonville, Florida there are mountains visible in the background. There are no mountains visible from anywhere in Florida. See more »

My summary line could be talking about the genders or something else. Although you'd only really know, if you watch the episode. A very interesting one, with a strong premise and as another user has said (and I do agree on that) could be either a movie or a TV show itself. But instead we get one episode. Almost hardly enough to get us going, with this idea ... but too little to be really engaging ... especially with the ending on hand here.

While there have also been people who liked the ending, I think it was letting the movie down a bit. It seemed as if they were out of ideas at the end. There is a few things, that would have been nice to have an answer too. On the other hand, maybe the audio commentary on the disc will provide some of the answers. I will have to watch/hear that some day.

All in all, a strong episode, strong performances, but there isn't that much gore and some people might dismiss this as not being "horror".
