Show generally

Corrected entry: When we watch the black and white footage of things that took place at The Centre in the past the camera angles change, cameras move and change focus as well. This implies that someone is there operating the cameras. It's highly unlikely that someone else would be allowed to be there when people are having psychiatric examinations, being murdered, making secret plans and so on. Unless the cameras had motion sensors which is unlikely for the time they were supposed to be happening.

Correction: I've noticed in a few episodes when Jarod is viewing the DSA's on his thing that there's a little ball-type thing that he uses to zoom in and out. One episode example (I think it's in the first season) is when he uses it to zoom in on Mr. Raines to read his lips (the line is "Listen to me Doctor. Tell the kid that daddy died in a plain crash. It's not exactly a lie") And besides, it's the Centre. There may be people watching them at all times.

Extreme - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jarod is being thrown into the swimming pool by Zed, the gang leader, as a sort of initiation, there is a shot where Jarod is tied up in chains sitting in a chair at the bottom of the pool. Another character is set to throw in the key just to the next of Jarod and he is supposed to fall over and get it. In the shot just before he falls over, you can see a crewmen's arm holding a chain attached to the chair in order to help Jarod fall over.

Jarod: You make the rules.
Miss Parker: That's just the way I like it.

Trivia: For some reason there is a picture of Batman's eye on Miss Parker's desk. It is between the picture of her and her father and a candy bowl. It looks like the Val Kilmer Batman, but I'm not sure. (00:00:25)
