** Shoot, any scene with William Bell in general is pretty hard to watch now that [[spoiler:Leonard Nimoy is dead.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: In what may be an amusing bit of {{Foreshadowing}}, the episode "The Road Not Taken" has a ConspiracyTheorist claim he is [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]]. Later on, we find out who is playing [[Creator/LeonardNimoy William Bell]]...
** This was intentionally done. The actor had previously appeared in the StarTrekDeepSpaceNine two-parter "Past Tense" playing basically the same character: someone suffering a mental illness in the year 2024 who believed aliens were among us. The Star Trek reboot also premiered 4 days after the episode aired.

* AwardSnub: John Noble's lack of even a single Emmy ''nomination'' has left many fans howling. Ana Torve does an amazing job too.

* SeasonalRot: Not as pronounced as in a lot of cases but for some people [[spoiler: the switch to an alternate timeline]] and the confusion as to whether we should see these characters [[spoiler: as the those we knew for the first three years or merely alternate versions]] caused problems and emotional distance from the storyline.

** Pretty much everyone for not noticing that Fauxlivia was acting odd. After a mission to an alternate universe. Where they know there is an alternate version of her. Also shapeshifters who can look like anyone. Not a single red flag.

** Characters seem to have a giant blindspot for their friends being replaced by impersonators:

** [[BlessedWithSuck The cortexiphan subjects.]] ''All of them.'' [[StoicWoobie Olivia]] got off lucky.
* WTFCastingAgency: Alright, casting department: you get BradDourif, an extraordinarily prolific character actor who's been in countless horror shows and movies and who, over fifteen years ago, gave a seminal performance in your show's spiritual predecessor ''Series/TheXFiles''. And then you....cast him as a generic {{Mook}} with no defining characteristics or interesting material to work with? What the hell, guys?

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic -- The {{Eye Catch}}es show a peculiarly changed item, such as a cross-section of an apple with fetuses (feti?) as the seeds, or a frog with the Greek letter Phi, or Φ, printed on it, along with a point of light. TheOtherWiki says Phi is used as a symbol for several interesting subjects, such as electric or magnetic flux in physics, a shorthand representation for an aromatic functional group in organic chemistry (which relates directly to the pilot episode), and a sentence in first-order logic.
** Not to mention the number (1.618...) represented by Phi, and, by extension, the Golden Ratio, although the Golden Ratio is usually denoted by the lowercase version of Phi (φ). Still, it's relation to science and nature fits right in with the theme of the show.

* CriticalResearchFailure: [[spoiler: Walter describes a clearly single celled organism as a Virus. He even answers in the affirmative when asked if it is a single cell. Viruses are less than a cell, being simply genetic material in a protein sheath. As such it would not be able to move under its own power.]]
