I'm also watching POI. Last season's episode "Matsya Nyaya" held a surprise for me as the custom license plate of special note ( HYDE35
) from 2008's ABC Life on Mars was inserted into that POI episode. I'm still trying to get the meaning of it but have not hit on the absolute reason it was done. HYDE35 is the source of my Hyde portion of my on-screen name(s).
The best thing I've got is that the pilot of Life on Mars mentioned HAL9000 in the pilot and I guessed that the machine in POI would be HAL-like and now seems to be revealed as a complex AI. Since I love sci-fi I took the red indicator light in the POI pilot as a HAL nod.
I missed the HYDE35 easter egg in POI episode 20 but a friend caught it and told me.
