The Same Old Story - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Dr. Bishop is using the special camera to capture the images on the dead woman's retina, he tells everyone to put on their goggles to protect them from the flashes. Once they find the image they need, everyone takes off their goggles, yet the camera is still flashing, and there are no ill effects.

Correction: Once they find the image they need, they are not looking directly at the flashes. It's like not looking directly at someone welding without wearing welding goggles. If you don't look directly at the welding flash, you don't have a problem, but can get retinal burn if you look directly at it unprotected.

Phillip Broyles: Someone out there is experimenting, only the whole world is their lab.



The very ending scene where Peter (in this version died in the ice as a boy so Walter's wife never met him) takes off some of the dust covers then picks up a toy airplane. The toy airplane he got as a child from ... Walter's wife when she was trying to placate him in an earlier episode for trying to run "home". This toy airplane wouldn't have been his as a child in this version of the universe.



Michael Cerveris makes his first significant appearance in this episode as The Observer/Bald Man. However if you watch the series from the beginning, he makes fleeting appearances in every episode, sometimes on a tv screen.
