In the original version of the pilot, Elliot's opening monologue is longer: he explains to the audience that he does not believe dinosaurs existed, but does believe in aliens.

The role of hacker Romero was recast following the screening of the pilot at SXSW, and the scenes were re-shot. In the original pilot Romero was played by Michael Buscemi
