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 »

Close Retelling of an Awesome Story
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only caught the last fifteen minutes of this episode, however, I was greatly surprised to recognize it straight off, as it is an adaptation of one of my favorite sci-fi short stories. I was amazed that the writer and director stayed so faithful to the source material and yet still be able to flesh some things out - like how the angels look. I can't wait until this episode airs again so that I can watch the entire thing.

If anyone wants to read where this episode comes from, the story is included in the anthology "Her Smoke Rose Up Forever" by James Tiptree Jr. I highly recommend picking it up and reading it to see where the episode draws its material from.
