TV: The show loves really unsubtle thematic links, such as when one characters says, “You know what it’s like when you’re the only one in a cinema not laughing?” then the next scene is a character crying in a cinema. It happens lots.
Icelandic Legends: Riley mentions the “hidden folk” of her homeland, a reference to the Huldufólk of Icelandic lore.
Going Global: It’s an expensive show, with filming in Chicago, San Francisco, Seoul, London, Berlin, Reykjavík, Mexico, Nairobi and Mumbai.
Best Line: Amanita: “Impossibility is just a kiss away from reality.” ( Yes, characters do sound like Kosh from Babylon 5.)
