** Orlando Serpentieri, a renowned actor, joins the cast. When Alessandro asks him why, after playing Shakespear, would he do that, he answers honestly that between Shakespeare and ''The Eyes of the Heart 2'' there's something called "loan".

** Also, in the last episode, characters tell Lorenzo "wax on, wax off" to remember his role as a slave (a case of BeamMeUpScotty, since the phrase used, "metti la cera, togli la cera", is not the actual translation in the movies, "dai la cera, togli la cera").

** Again in ''My Africa (part 1)'', Corinna's arrival on the set has numerous elements that recall Kate Winslet's arrival on the titular ship of {{Titanic}}.
** The beating of Lorenzo in ''The Daughter of Mazinga'' is a recreation of "Gomer Pyle"'s beating in FullMetalJacket.

Added DiffLines:

* StockScream: Used to shot a suicide scene.
* TakeThatAudience: The producers need to cut everything even slightly ethically complex or ambiguos, also the whole fact that they don't want anything new just, at the very best, something that ''looks'' new but is the same story all over again.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilTwin: In ''The Eyes of the Heart'' Corelli has one.


Added DiffLines:

** In-universe [[spoilers: in ''The Eyes of the Heart 3'', Corelli is blind but says he will keep doing his job using "the eyes of the heart... 3". Renè thinks Stanis adding the number is overdoing it, but they haven't time for another one.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: The scriptwriters claiming they really need an holiday. While sunbathing. Or fishing. Or doing anything but working.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGun: And [[ChekhovsGunman gunman]], used constantly in ''The Eyes of the Heart 2''. The truth is that the scriptwriters prefer looking at the previous episodes to find something they can use instead of actual writing. These don't stop them (to praise themselves) and the director (to avoid further questions) to pass them as this trope.


Added DiffLines:

** The opening says "I'll use the eyes of the heart/ As the blind doctor says/ when he operates on patients" [[spoilers:''The Eyes of the Heart 3'' has the main character becoming blind but resolving to operate nonetheless. Cue TitleDrop.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NoEnding: In the end [[spoiler: we don't know if Arianna and Alessandro stayed in touch, or if he followed the scriptwriters' trail or started working on something better, we don't know where all the main characters went, except Duccio and Renè. The last shot has him pondering about answering a phone call (Lopez calling him to work on ''The Eyes of the Heart 3'', but he doesn't know it), but it ends before showing us if he does.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RecurringGag: The eral's ring is a main plot point in ''The Eyes of the Heart 2''. Despite no one knowing exactly why.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Season three, in the last episodes, becomes a steep one for Renè.

* Foil: ''Dimension Six''

to:

* Foil: ''Dimension Six''Six'', a show created to rival ''Medical Dimension''. [[spoiler: We find out, however, that they were never supposed to air together, they made both as quality fiction to show one at random and make it fail, to cancel the other.]]



** Which is in itself another brilliant foreshadowing: Federer (the goldfish Renè bought for the new series) is lost and replaced with another random one [[spoiler: as ''Medical Dimension'', we will find out, loses is purpose and becomes just a series like any other. That the replacement turns out to be Boris, the fish bought for ''The Eyes of the Heart'', only makes it more brilliant.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Renè, after finding out the truth about ''Medical Dimension'' and losing the last bit of faith in television he had, decides to purposefully go back to ''The Eyes of the Heart''.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Renè''': We are fucking done with quality! We want ''shit''!]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler: Karim]] does not appear in season three, [[spoiler: until she is brought back for ''The Eyes of Heart 3''.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Also, 3x13 ("Back to the Future- Part 1"), we already saw Renè [[spoiler: asking the screenwriters for "their usual shit", but we only get the true extent of his HeelFaceTurn when he tells what they are about to shot: ''The Eyes of the Heart 3''.]]
