    Plot Outline: Fictional romantic tale of a rich girl and poor boy who meet on the ill-fated voyage of the unsinkable ship.
    Plot: The best minds in the US are tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the governments benefit.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 3 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.

    Goofs: We know about 147 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Incorrectly regarded as goofs: There are many minute contradictions of history, both in events and in the technical details of the ship. This film is prey to a large number of factual errors due to the large volume of documentary evidence from the actual event.

    Trivia: There are 2 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Was originally conceived as an animated series.
    • The first season episodes were not aired in the order intended by the shows creators. This is suggested by the episodes production numbers which are displayed on the Sci-Fi channels Eureka website next to episode titles quite often. There are some small inconsistencies when watched closely, but such inconsistencies are minimal and were intentionally controlled. In podcast commentaries with the shows creators and star Colin Ferguson, they confirm that the production order is in fact the order they intended the show to air, but the network executives changed the order to try and place stronger episodes earlier in the run as to help attract viewers. As such, the creators were able to make minor changes in editing and sometimes ADR dialogue in later episodes (such as removing the explicit mention of Zoes first day at school) to try to eliminate audience confusion.

    • While filming at the Chilean Embassy in Washington D.C., Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig were to drive a white SUV to the entrance, stop the car and allow valets to park it. Kidman forgot to place the car in park and as she got out it began to roll down the hill.

    • Originally wrapped in early 2006, the film underwent massive reshooting in 2007. The reason for this was the studio which didnt liked the cut director Oliver Hirschbiegel delivered.

    Plot Outline: Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.
    Plot: The classic story of “The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow” is brought to life by the gothic film maker Tim Burton. Johnny Depp plays Ichabod Crane, and to win the heart of Katrina Van Tassel (Christina Ricci) he will have to brave the nearby woods, even though several decapitated bodies have been found. And then the legend of the axe wielding headless horsemen come together to make this movie.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    The opening credits – shown over Ichabods travel to Sleepy Hollow – interact with the landscape: if Ichabods coach is near a river, the words are reflected on the surface of the water; if hes in a forest the letters drift away like dead leaves, and so on.

    Goofs: We know about 16 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Continuity: Ichabods hairstyle when he is in bed after being wounded by the horseman.

    Trivia: There are 41 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Johnny Depp reportedly based his portrayal of Ichabod Crane on Withnail, from Withnail & I (1987), as played by Richard E. Grant.
    • The scene where Ichabod Crane crosses the covered bridge and hears the frogs underneath croaking “Ichabod” and “Headless Horseman” is a tribute to Disneys 1958 animated version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1958) (featured in The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)), in which Ichabod Crane, crossing a bridge, hears the frogs croaking the same words. Director Tim Burton, a former Disney animator, has cited the Disney version of the tale as his main inspiration for the look and style of his film. The scene of Ichabod Crane riding the Horsemans horse backwards is also taken from the earlier film.
    • Christopher Walken, who plays the Headless Horseman, played a schoolteacher in The Dead Zone (1983), in the beginning of which he tells his class to read “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

    Plot: In “The Andromeda Strain,” a U.S. military satellite crashes in a small town and unleashes a deadly plague killing all but two survivors.

    Trivia: There are 1 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • In the source novel by Michael Crichton, the main scientists were mainly white (presumably) heterosexual men, but Robert Schenkkan, who wrote the teleplay for this remake made the decision to change the characters ethnicities, sexualities, and genders because, he said in a May 2008 interview with Brent Hartinger on afterelton.com, “If youre going to update the story, which is our mandate, you have an obligation to reflect the world as it is.” Schenkkan further said that he decided to include the brief reference to Keene (Rick Schroder) being gay because of a principle invented by Crichton in the original novel, the “Odd Man Hypothesis,” which states that in a time of crisis, an unmarried, unattached person [Crichton specified a man] with no family to distract him would have the best chance of making rational, unbiased, unemotional decisions.

    Plot Outline: As the reappearance of 4,400 missing persons on a single day confounds the global community, federal agents on the case slowly discover the ways in which the victims have been changed.
    Plot: These are the stories of 4400 abductees after they are returned to Earth. People dealing with traumatic changes, driven by the mystery of what happened and why. Some of them have been affected in mysterious ways, and some will have certain abilities, both good and bad. The pilot has a ball of light sailing towards Earth. But rather than the expected catastrophic event, thousands of returned abductees are left with no memory of their otherworldly experiences. Each has been gone anywhere from a few months to several decades but hasnt aged a day.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 4 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:

    Goofs: We know about 6 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Continuity: The “comet” is close enough for Titan missiles to reach it in a couple of minutes, and then is shown to be passing the moon on its way to Earth.

    Trivia: There are 5 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Because of it being the first major science-fiction miniseries since ‘Steven Spielberg’s "Taken" (2002), and because of its nearly opposite premise, it is jokingly renamed by sci-fans as “Put Back”.
    • The opening scene played at the beginning of each episode, which explains the premise of the series, is 44 seconds long.
    • When the producers were conceiving of the series, the secret of who had abducted the 4400 was supposed to be revealed in the fifth season. USA had picked the show up as a miniseries and wanted it to have some resolution, so the secret was revealed in the fifth episode.
