Random thoughts

Whatever Earth-2’s differences, it still has the Rocky Horror Show. Why Olivia-2’s ringtone for Broyles-2 is Science Fiction / Double Feature is less clear, though – perhaps a comment on Broyles-2’s extreme baldness?

High-energy particle accelerators are extremely large and immobile, major breakthroughs in Earth-2 notwithstanding. The device that Walter and William take from Harvard looks like a small electron accelerator, which uses magnetic fields to direct and accelerate a low-energy electron beam.
