TRIVIA In “Brian Finch’s Black Op” ( 1.07), the opening matches the start of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off almost shot- for- shot, as Brian pretends to be poorly to take a day off work.
BEST EPISODE “This Is Your Brian On Drugs” ( 1.11) pits Brian against fellow NZT- takers – and gives his bodyguards and Agent Boyle something to do at last.
DID YOU SPOT? One episode features a serial killer planting an idea in someone’s brain using surgery, à la Inception. The murderer turns out to be called Nolan Bale. Geddit?
IT’S WOSSERNAME! Blair Brown, who plays Brian’s mum, and Georgina Haig, as a fellow drug- taker, both played regular characters in Fringe.
BEST MOMENT The cartoon interludes in “Sands, Agents Of Morra” ( 1.16) are great fun, as are the new illustrated additions to the opening credits!
