*The manner through which the illusion is revealed to Sheppard (dead friends starting to turn up alive) is similar to the first plot twist in {{WPS|Philip K. Dick}}'s classic science fiction novel ''{{WPS|Ubik}}'', where the characters find out they are in the half-life (a kind of suspended animation), critically injured (or perhaps closer to dead), and their friend, whom they believed dead as the sole casualty in the same incident that actually injured/killed them, is alive and attempting to revive them. In Ubik though, the 'live' character started appearing as an engraving on the reverse of coins, rather than as an actual living person.

*The opening monologue of ''[[The Outer Limits]]'', which is heard in part as [[Dr.]] [[Rodney McKay]] watches television, is particularly apt for this episode: "There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. [...]"
