Trivia: The show's two hour premier broke the SCI-FI's ratings record by attracting over 4.2 million viewers. It was also the most watched cable program that day.
Trivia: This episode was not shown in the initial U.S. airing of "The Prisoner" on CBS. There was speculation that its pacifist, anti-violence moral might have been construed as a Vietnam War protest, but the network's reason for censoring the episode has never been disclosed.
Trivia: Dolores tells William: "They say great beasts once roamed this world, as big as mountains, but all that's left of them is bone and amber." This is a general allusion to dinosaurs, of course; but, more specifically, it's a tip-of-the-hat to "Jurassic Park," by author Michael Crichton, who also wrote The Original "Westworld." The theme of most of Crichton's science fiction was human shortsightedness resulting in scientific nightmares. Crichton's "Westworld" and "Jurassic Park" are virtually identical stories about scientific amusement parks running amok.
Trivia: While they're waiting for the Venek Horde to attack again, when John's chained to the statue Scorpius/Harvey's playing the harmonica with his feet up on John's lap. Notice that both soles of Scorpius/Harvey's red boots have the name "Andy" written on them. In "Toy Story" Woody's boot has "Andy" written on its sole, and here in John's mind it's to signify John's ownership of the neural clone.
Trivia: When Dirk and Todd are talking about if Dirk ever solved a case, he mentions there was a bit about a sofa and Thor. This is a reference to the first two Douglas Adams' book in the Dirk Gently series, "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" (which had an immovable sofa) and "The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul" (which had Thor).
