Did You Know?

Director Edward James Olmos stated in the DVD commentary that he made several homages to The Boy with Green Hair (1948), which starred a then twelve year old Dean Stockwell. Stockwell portrayed Peter Fry, a war orphan whose hair inexplicably turned green when he discovered that his parents had been killed during the Second World War. One example was when Cavil asked the boy John "Are you a war orphan?" This question was asked of Peter Fry several times in The Boy with Green Hair (1948). Olmos also used a still shot picture of Peter Fry from the movie when casting for the character of John the Boy, because he wanted the actor to bear a strong resemblance to how Stockwell looked in his adolescence. Alex Ferris resemblance to Stockwell's picture helped get him cast. At one point, Olmos wanted John the Boy's hair color to be green like Peter Fry's character, but was ultimately overruled by the producers.See more »

The Point?, 30 October 2009
Author: flowwrnglr ( from Belmont, MA

While the acting and direction of the sparse new footage was excellent, the point of this exercise sadly escapes me. This story answered NO questions I had; the answers it did present were either obvious or trivial. It was too confusing to draw new viewers, and too redundant to charm all but the fiercest fans. A few of the explications actually spawned new questions I did not want to have (e.g., were some 1's and 4's actually redeemable; I don't really want to think so, given the series ending). And the final (best) scenes were ruined by excising a certain key character and over-dubbing her original order. Contractual exigencies, no doubt -- a thought which was unfortunately running through my head for most of the show, preventing any willing suspension of disbelief. NBC/Universal, take note: devotees of this series are more intelligent and discriminating than this; this is not the way to milk them.
