Spoiler round up

No idea if this is canonical, but it appears Zachary Walzer has a twitter account, and asks if anyone can feed his dig, whose name is Laika. This was the name of that Russian first dog in space who was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome.

At the New York screening apparently Josh and Bracey were asked if Tom and Sofie will ever get together romantically, but the creators were mum. This obviously means YES.

Not really a spoiler, more a theory. Could Francis Norton be named after Leland Francis Norton, a WWII pilot who gave his name to Norton Air Force Base, a location often mentioned by Fake Moon Landing nuts as the site where the 'fake' moon footage was filmed? No, probably not.

The shape of things to come

First spoilers showed sex, and now violence! There are some pictures over at the Facebook page of Bracey trying out a blood capsule, so it looks like blood will be shed in an upcoming episode.

Actually one of the things I liked about the first two episodes was the absence of these things. Tom Taylor wasn't called from his bed while entertaining a hot blonde, and he didn't strip to the waist and have a fist fight with the Canadian Government guy. It makes the thing feel more novel-esque and slow burning like a Greg Bear novel rather than an 24 style show. That said I still look forwards to whatever is in store...

Video Blog #14 has an interview with a character who hasn't appeared yet on the series, called 'Jane'. She (the actress) says she is learning Russian, but it's not clear if she'll be playing a Russian or an American who speaks Russian.

UPDATE: She's probably a nurse who speaks Russian given this behind the scenes footage from video blog #15:

UPDATE: I watched right to the end of episode 2 and you see a small sneak preview of episode 3 and she is indeed a nurse as suggested. That'll teach me not to watch the credits!

Spoilers from the new episodes teaser

A few months ago the folks at Pioneer One posted a new episodes teaser on vimeo, here. A few of the sequences contain footage that wasn't in episode 2:

Looks like things get racy at some point. Not sure who these characters are however.

This is a screenshot of some footage of our martian boy that I don't think has appeared yet. He's appeared in some video blogs, (such as #15) but with his face fuzzed out.

Spoilers will be posted here as they are revealed, to keep them separate from the rest of the site.
