Breakdown :

The Domain

WHOIS shows the domain registered by Warner Bros. Entertainment. It’s currently not pointing to a website and times out in the browser. Overall it’s a good generic name for a search engine,

The Website

In the shown website, the production designers were obviously emulating the stripped down Google look. However, they must have been worried that having “SEARCH” as part of the domain wouldn’t be enough because the page has a sub-heading of “search engine” beneath the non-logo. You know, just in case Pierce Hawthorne makes an appearance and needs to know what he’s typing into.

And it really would have helped if they’d thrown that out in favor of a quick logo.  A set of binoculars wearing a suit, or a magnifying glass driving a Ferrari. Something. But at this point it’s still early in the first season, if they use fictional websites later on it’ll be interesting to see if they get more elaborate.

      I held off watching for the longest time because of my fondness for the original film La Femme Nikita and to a lesser extent Point of No Return. But they really took the premise and made it their own.
