Did You Know?


Neil's safe combination is 7-9-3. Since Neil is a mathematician and highly religious (to the point of believing himself to be an Angel of Mercy on Earth), this is not surprising, as all three numbers are considered divine numbers in most major religions of the world. See more »


When Alternate Astrid blurts out "Deus ex Machina," Walter asks, "The hand of God?" This phrase actually translates into "God via the machine" or "God in the machine," an plot device in Ancient Greek drama that amounted to a last-minute rescue by an omnipotent force. Neither Walter's translation nor Alternate Astrid's use of the phrase are accurate. See more »

4 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is now my favorite episode...wonderfully written, beautifully directed. Everything worked in this episode, the comedy was spot-on, the story and dialog just great. I've always thought Astrid was one of the most charming (and cute) characters on TV, the way she has always been so good with Walter, but what she does in this episode is so compassionate as to be inspiring. Bravo Jasika Nicole. The dynamic between Walter and Altlivia was well played, too. All the characters from both (or two) of the time lines seem to be learning to get along, and there is a lot of opportunity for comedy, and this episode made the most of it. Altlivia's "Hey girls!" entrance was hilarious, as was the "I"ve always wondered why more people didn't do that" from Olivia. What's really great about this episode though, were the themes...duality, the convergence of all time, the importance of family... This episode was one of the most cinematic entries into a series that is always beautifully done. This show still has lots of stories to tell, and I hope this episode is a preview of the quality we can look forward to.

That this show is on the verge of cancellation is amazing to me.
