Storyline

The FBI teams up with a formerly-institutionalized scientist - who was performing experiments on the fringe of real science - and his son to investigate weird crimes that are seemingly part of a larger pattern, and may be connected with a global company called Massive Dynamic.

Trivia

There have been several indications that in the alternate universe, The West Wing (1999) did not end with its seventh season, but is in fact still running - albeit with an Barack Obama-like presidential character (instead of the President Santos character played by Jimmy Smits whose inauguration ended the real show). The real "West Wing" was originally supposed to have a black president, but actor Sidney Poitier turned down the role that eventually went to Martin Sheen. See more »

Goofs

Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices. See more »

Great show, don't listen to the critics...
7 August 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a great show with talented actors and great storyline. You have to see every episode to know whats going on. Nothing for viewers who watches a episode every other week. The people who calls the storyline bad doesn't get it. It's very smart and like "Lost" you have to use your mind to find out the secrets revealed throughout the show. JJ Abrams is a brilliant writer and the cast is perfect. I strongly recommend you who haven't seen this show to have a look. -FROM THE BEGINNING- otherwise you will not understand a thing.

Best regards joura-2
