Trivia: Chris O'Dowd walks into a gun shop. Playing on a black and white TV in the top left corner is the original Twilight episode "A Most Unusual Camera". It has parallels with The Blue Scorpion since the camera was also an inanimate object that made people do things. (00:21:00)

Point Of Origin - S1-E8

Trivia: Mr Dingle's Icy Treats ice cream truck continually shows up throughout this episode, even helping Ginnifer Goodwin escape her prison. The name is a nod to the original Twilight Zone series Mr Dingle the Strong, starring Burgess Meredith.

The Wunderkind - S1-E5

Trivia: Notice the logo "Whipple News" on the lower corner of the TV screen when the news coverage is interviewing the patrons who are insulting Raff for committing treason against Oliver. The Brain Center at Whipple's is an old episode in the original Twilight Zone series where Mr Whipple states "out with the old and in with the new." What an interesting tie in with Oliver's win as President. Mr Whipple pushes himself right out of a job as automation has taken over. In this reboot, Raff pushes himself out of a job as his new young candidate orders him to be killed.

Point of Origin - S1-E6

Trivia: When Rei and Casey are caught having sex by their Commander, a hand slaps up on the steamy window of the room they are in. It is eerily reminiscent of the hand that pops up on the steamy glass window of the automobile Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are having sex in during the movie Titanic. Both of these couples are on vehicles (space shuttle versus ocean liner) unbeknownst to them that are headed toward tragedy.
