Did You Know?


In the flashbacks to the Sensates births, Will and Riley were clearly born facing the ceiling, and Sun, Lito, and Wolfgang's scenes are filmed in a way that suggests that they may have been as well. Only 5% of babies are born facing the ceiling (a position referred to as P.O.P., which stands for Persistent Occiput Posterior). It's a position that is significantly more likely to cause complications in birth, and many babies in this position are rotated manually before delivery. See more »


When Lito is turning/fish tailing his car into Diego's drive way, his Audi has different wheels on the back than the front. This was most likely done to allow the car to easily fishtail on different tires. In the next scene, the car has identical wheels front and back. See more »

Noticed that when ever the Wachowskis have directed the episode it is a repeat from their previous ones. I agree the classical piece in the end is nice but 9.1. It is actually rather dull. . . . . . . Idea of the series is good but the storyline is weak and, lets face it, they are utterly boring and repetitive. One should expect the writers to get more out of this but it has been stuck going on circles and nothing is happening. I can't see the point for so much porn and long meaningless dialogues, musical pieces during which the mental state or feelings of a person are ripped in pieces. Cast is OK, characters are OK but something is still missing, I Would not recommend.
