** Carter comes close, but might be intended to be more of a ChewToy than the ButtMonkey. You're clearly meant to feel sorry for everything he's put through, while Fargo's problems are almost always played for laughs.

You're clearly meant to feel sorry for everything he's put through, while Fargo's problems are almost always played for laughs. After all, the town's safety is his responsibility and most of the time, the problems are not his fault.

** ''Glimpse'' starts with one to the 50's propaganda films.

** ''Glimpse'' "Glimpse" starts with one to the 50's propaganda films.

** Also in ''Glimpse'', is TheCameo for StanLee, who provides a ShoutOut to TheHulk. He appears as [[TheDanza Dr. Lee]], specializing in the effects of gamma radiation, you can call him Generalissimo, and "Don't make me angry, you won't like me when I'm angry." *** Also, Bear McCreary decided to play a tribute with "The Lonely Man Theme" from the Hulk TV Series playing in the background during that scene. Which was slightly adapted to resemble the "McCreary Eureka Theme" (the one in the credits and in the background from season 2 onward).

** In another episode she traps most of the main characters inside to force them to work out their issues which is sweet in annoying. Unfortunately, while trying to escape they deactivate SARAH, and the original A.I she was built on, BRAD, re-emerges. BRAD is not so nice.

** The pilot in general has a few differences. Henry has an assistant who runs the shop by Henry's garage, and is only seen a few times after the pilot. ** Global Dynamics is little more than a corridor with each section forming a room branching off from it, including Section 5 which has an entire floor to itself in the series proper. Even stranger considering Section 5 is where most season-spanning plots are involved. ** Nathan Stark is no where to be seen, despite being the head of GD and likely privy to the information of an outsider visiting a top secret research facility. Though when he does make an entrance, it quickly becomes apparent why he might not have intervened... Or cared. ** Sheriff Cobb seems like a well respected figure in the town, yet after this episode he's never seen again. He's barely even mentioned, with Jack compared to him a few times in season 1 by Lupo and Stark, and once regarding his old hut being passed onto Carter... Who only learns about this half way through season 5. ** It was also the only episode to air as a full 'double length' episode. Others had stories that spanned several episodes, but the pilot aired almost as a made-for-TV movie.

moving to trivia.
* TheDanza: Senator Michaela Wen is played by Ming-Na Wen.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Salli Richardson (Allison) played Elisa Maza in ''{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}''.

* {{Jossed}}: Averted by the common fan theory held that Nathan [[spoiler:wasn't killed in the time machine, but was rather sent to another time or dimension and is going to return.]] When he does return, [[spoiler:he says that this was [[{{Lampshading}} exactly the case]]. Although this turns out to be a hallucination, Nathan having not really returned,]] we still don't know what happened to him.

* ActorAllusion: Two in "The Ex-Files". An obvious one is when Dr. Grant, played by James Callis, claims that he's hallucinating "a leggy blond in a slinky, red dress"; a nod to his role as Dr. Gaius Baltar in the remake of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' who really was followed around by such a hallucination. [[spoiler: A subtler one occurs when Carter calls his hallucination of Nathan Stark "undead" leading it to reply "Nope, not a vampire". Ed Quinn appeared as a vampire on ''Series/TrueBlood'' for a few episodes after leaving the show.]] ** In "The Real Thing," Holly (Felicia Day) is attacked by a dragon. Felicia Day played Tallis in ''WebVideo/DragonAgeRedemption'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' DLC.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: SyFy ordered season six and there were rumors it'd be the last season. Then they said the cancellation rumors were false and they looked forward to more. Then they took back season six and cancelled the show for real. Luckily, they then ordered an extra episode of season five to wrap the series up.

* FeetOfClay: Several times, it'll turn out a supposed great person or top scientist is not what they appear to be. ** Jason Anderson is said to be an uber genius who comes up with many great theories and devices when he works with groups. It turns out that he's just stealing the work of other, truly talented scientists and using a device to wipe their memories so they don't even know they're complimenting him on their own work. He also used it to make his wife forget she and Henry were a couple. Eventually, she finds out, naturally pissed and helps expose him. ** When Fargo's uncle, frozen in 1957, is thawed out, it turns out he's the true genius behind much of the work that helped put Eureka on the map and when he vanished, his partner claimed the research as his own.
