In season three, episode ten, "The Firefly", Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown from the Back to the Future trilogy) plays a character who sees his son who had died in 1985...the year of the "present" timeline in the Back to the Future trilogy. "The Firefly" revolves around "The Observer" explaining to Walter that their actions in 1985 had altered reality, a science fiction theme common to the Back to the Future trilogy. In the same episode, Walter puts on 3-D wire rimmed glasses and says to Astrid that he got the "look" from an old friend, Dr. Jacoby from Washington. Doctor Jacoby was a character who wore the same glasses on the television show, Twin Peaks (1990), which was set in Washington. (Possibly a stretch, but, Christopher Lloyd's character is Roscoe Joyce and his son's name is Bobby. Bobby was a charcter on Twin Peaks (1990) played by Dana Ashbrook, who appeared in nine episodes of Dawson's Creek (1998), which starred Joshua Jackson (Peter on this show).) See more »

I first started following the series at launch, viewing the first 3 episodes. Then i completely forgot about it. I just recently started viewing this again and i have to say, there's more to it than the first couple of episodes let you see. The plot deepens as episodes go by, the role of the "mad scientist" becomes clearer and everything slowly ties in together like a perfect puzzle. The story is not one of the most original you'll find, but it is told in a most beautiful way, a way that will keep you hooked until the end. The characters are strong and so are the actors/actresses that bring them to life. The effects are top notch. An overall great TV show with that classical X Files feel to it but with a twist, a twist that i personally enjoy and one that made me anxiously await the second installment in the TV series. Highly recommended to all you X Files fans and also for anyone that enjoys a conspiracy plot that has some substance. An easy 9 out of 10.
