Storyline

The FBI teams up with a formerly-institutionalized scientist - who was performing experiments on the fringe of real science - and his son to investigate weird crimes that are seemingly part of a larger pattern, and may be connected with a global company called Massive Dynamic. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Trivia

When they started to write the alternate universe Olivia character, the show's writers referred to her among themselves as "Bolivia", because they considered the original Olivia to be the one from the "A-plot", and so the alternate universe Olivia was from the "B-plot", "B-Olivia" (Bolivia is also the name of a country in South America). However, this name did not catch on amongst the fans, who quickly started calling her "Fauxlivia" (from the French word for "false") instead. See more »

Goofs

Most shots of "Harvard" are actually Yale Univ. Mostly cross campus courtyard and Old campus courtyard. See more »

More To It Than Meets The Eye
9 September 2009 | by mtrxhckrSee all my reviews

I first started following the series at launch, viewing the first 3 episodes. Then i completely forgot about it. I just recently started viewing this again and i have to say, there's more to it than the first couple of episodes let you see. The plot deepens as episodes go by, the role of the "mad scientist" becomes clearer and everything slowly ties in together like a perfect puzzle. The story is not one of the most original you'll find, but it is told in a most beautiful way, a way that will keep you hooked until the end. The characters are strong and so are the actors/actresses that bring them to life. The effects are top notch. An overall great TV show with that classical X Files feel to it but with a twist, a twist that i personally enjoy and one that made me anxiously await the second installment in the TV series. Highly recommended to all you X Files fans and also for anyone that enjoys a conspiracy plot that has some substance. An easy 9 out of 10.
