Memorable Moments


  • It's one thing for Rickman to take the physical appearance of the person he takes brain fluid from, but when he morphs into the Gypsy man in the teaser, he also takes on his clothes and bandanna.
  • Later in the same scene, Rickman, though still "wearing" the bandanna, now has his own clothes again.
  • As Rembrandt and Wade are walking away from an overturned vehicle, we see two wide shots sandwiched between a close-up shot. The wide shots show them walking down a fairly bumpy hill, as evident by their body movement, but the close shot has them walking fairly straight-forward and calmly.
  • The patrolman, Robert, says he didn't recognise Rickman because of his different face. So how did he come to the conclusion it was Rickman?
  • As the dinosaur begins to chase Robert as he gets off the ground, you can see that it isn't effecting the earth it's walking across. In the following shot, its movements don't sync up with the amount of ground it's covering.
  • Gretchen says they wouldn't give up their livestock to the natives, but in the second "Exodus" episode, it doesn't appear they actually took livestock with them.
  • Why would the Tyrannosaurus die off because of starvation when it's established there are other dinosaurs left alive?
  • When running from the T-Rex, Quinn tells Maggie to "hustle, hustle," but this is an obvious overdub as it sounds nothing like Jerry O'Connell.
  • Andrews points to the back of his neck with his finger still on the trigger. No trained soldier would do something so careless.
  • When Rickman gets ready to push the rocks over the cave hole, you can see he bumps them, causing them to shake as if they were foam props.
  • The amount of rocks the Tyrannosaurus has cleared from the hole in the exterior and interior shots of the cave don't match.
  • When the Tyrannosaurus's head explodes various chunks fly into the cave, but there is absolutely no blood or gore outside.
