SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - View screen -

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.)
