The number 47 appears frequently throughout the series. This is due to show creator J.J. Abrams directing/producing the Star Trek reboot movies (as well as show co-creators/writers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci writing for them). It is well known in Trek lore that the number 47 appears frequently throughout the different series (from The Next Generation and forward). The story behind that is Joe Menosky (writer from TNG on) began inserting it because at his alma mater Pomona College 47 was something of a superstition: it goes back to 1964 where it originated partly in a joke-proof from math professor Donald Bentley that all numbers were equal to one another (he chose 47), and partly from the observation by a few students that the number 47 occurred more often than you'd expect it to.

Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices. See more »
I watch this show every week. If I can't be home I make sure it is DVR'd. I love the character Walter Bishop (John Noble). He is my favorite part of the show. I mainly watch it for him. I too didn't like it much in the beginning but then I got to know the characters and now I am addicted. It's the type of show that can keep you interested because every week it is something new but still with the ongoing storyline. (make sense?)I like all the characters and I have to disagree with other reviewers who say that these people can't act. Joshua is a very good and talented actor, he was on another hit TV show for many years (Dawson's Creek), so he's got to be doing something right. As for Anna Torv I think she is a good actress, I think that her storyline and character is why people think she is a bad actor. I don't like all the reality stuff on TV these days. I like being taken somewhere else and leaving reality behind for an hour a week. I have enough reality with my job and life and they are just coming up with dumb and dumber shows all the time. This show is good entertainment, which is what TV is suppose to be.
