Trivia

Brad Dourif and John Noble both have featured roles in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but never appear in the same scenes. In this episode, they share a pivotal scene together. See more »

Goofs

Moreau's gunman uses a "silencer" in his gun to reduce the sound of the gunshot to a mere "Phwt!". This is impossible. First, the correct term is "suppressor". This is because a suppressor does not silence any weapon - it eliminates muzzle flash and reduces the sonic pressure of a shot. A gunshot is at least 160 decibels, and suppressed gunshots are typically around 130 decibels, the equivalent of the sound of a jet plane from a distance of 50 feet, hardly a "Phwt!". See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening titles are gray, and feature new fringe science topics: futuristic concepts such as "brain porting" and "clonal transplantation", but also "hope" and "water". See more »

IMDb Special Rating Exemption #Ry8y986668
5 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Good news.

After a series of protracted emails, I was able to get the IMDb Special Rating Exemption Permit as above, to issue this one-of-a kind episode a rating of 25 (instead of 10, which is usually the highest).

Also for clarity I am binge-watching the whole series in 2016 which in a way makes me as guilty of playing with the fabric of time as the characters in this show.

Quick review -- I have done my fair share of reviews, I think 1100 or so, and I have watched a lot of TV and films but I have never seen a time paradox handled so well and I have never seen such vivid portrayals of characters in an alternate timeline.

And frankly I have never seen the longer time arc of the serial TV series so beautifully used to build drama. Makes BSG look like a walk in the park. Makes the Star Trek Voyageur time paradoxes look like Romper Room.

Best work JJ ever did.
