    4 has not got an official name but it is the Here be Dragons park, which leaves 5.

    Unlikely but it could be the same presidential satire / play area / hunting ground as Avenue 5.

    Romeworld was in the original film, so that's a possibility too.

    Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson are available for cameos.

    I usually try to avoid spoilers, unfortunately while trying to retrospectively check something I thought I knew about The Winter Line reference I came across this information from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

    Park 4 is a tribute to their friends Dan and David, the ones seen tinkering with the dragon, Park 5 will be seen by the end of the season and "it will be a little different ".

    I do get tired of the Sci-Fi trope of thwarting computers by telling them to compute the last digit of Pi though. (Or variations on that).

    Back in my overclocking hardcore gamer days, that's how we benchmarked our computers. We'd use programs like Prime95 or SuperPi to flood the CPU and RAM with instructions to stress test our systems. If there were errors in the calc or the CPU overheated and crashed, we'd reconfigure and start again.

    Think that's where the phrase "Burn In" comes from.

    I'm usually not one for the post credit information or "about" shows, but I'm thoroughly enjoying these. The info on the freeze action with the Nazis was great.

    They were German/Italian defence lines in central Italy designed intended stop Allied invasion troops moving up Italy from the South.

    In my minds eye the landmark Monte Cassino was at the center of the line and I was suprised I could not recall seeing it in the episode but after the episode I did some Googling and discovered there were some lesser Winter Lines - that was when I unintentionally stumbled on Spoiler information.

    EDIT: Composing while Rob was posting.

    In addition to the above, Jo Garfein/Josh Wigler suggest it might have been a bit of a pun on Game of Throne's "Winter is Coming."
