* FakeAmerican: Vanessa Lengies and Jamie Elman (Luke Foley) both grew up in Canada (although Jamie Elman was born in the US). Jamie Elman hails from Montreal and Vanessa Lengies grew up in nearby Huron Quebec. While both are less likely to let slip [[CanadianAccents Canadian Rising]] (being less pronounced in that area of the country) their "ough" endings often come out rather Quebecois.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: As noted in the opening, the first season was released on [=DVD=] while the show was still running. As of 2014, the other two seasons have never been released.
* MarketBasedTitle: In Australia the first season aired as ''Our Generation'' (it later reverted to the original title).

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Creator/{{NBC}} loved to change the show's time slot.
** In Britain this was screwed by ''two'' networks; it aired on the Hallmark Channel and Trouble, and neither channel could be bothered to show the third and final season.



* StuntCasting: Countless instances of modern-day celebrities portraying their 1960s equivalents; the most jarring example has got to be Paris Hilton as [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Barbara Eden]].
** Er, Nick Lachey as Tom Jones? Also, Nancy Sinatra wasn't initially keen on Jennifer Love Hewitt playing her [[spoiler: - good thing she changed her mind, since JLH was one of the few guests to appear twice]].

* Henry Walker (Jonathan Adams): A business associate of Jack. He is black, which is a Big Deal what with this being the '60s.
* Sam Walker (Arlen Escarpeta): Son of Henry and classmate to the Pryor kids. He eventually gets a {{UST}} filled relationship with Meg. Of course, being black is an even Bigger Deal here.
