Trivia
There have been several indications that in the alternate universe, Humphrey Bogart was not a movie star, or at least did not have the same career he had in the real world: Lincoln identifies Cary Grant, not Bogart, as the actor who plays the Sam Spade role in The Maltese Falcon (1941), and Fauxlivia identifies Ronald Reagan, not Bogart, as the male star of Casablanca (1942).

There have been several indications that in the alternate universe, The West Wing (1999) did not end with its seventh season, but is in fact still running - albeit with an Barack Obama-like presidential character (instead of the President Santos character played by Jimmy Smits whose inauguration ended the real show). The real "West Wing" was originally supposed to have a black president, but actor Sidney Poitier turned down the role that eventually went to Martin Sheen.

Goofs
Despite being set in Boston many of the neighborhoods bear no resemblance to the actual Boston neighborhoods they are supposed to represent.

Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices.

Q
What's up with those pictures that look like X-Rays?
A
These pictures are known as "Glyphs" and first showed up on posters and online as part of the viral marketing for Fringe. Even though there only seem to be a few glyphs, depending on where the particle of light appears in the image makes many variations of the glyphs, and they all correspond to letters of the alphabet.For more information about the individual Glyphs, see the article on Fringepedia: http://fringepedia.net/wiki/Glyphs
