** ''The House'' also has many [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to ''TheShawshankRedemption'', although the main plot itself isn't lifted from the movie. It also seems to lift some of its story from ''Film/CoolHandLuke''.

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: A number of episodes--''Look Again'' (Martha Moxley), ''Strange Fruit'' (Emmitt Till), etc--are based on real life cases. Most notably ''The Boy in the Box'' is so close to a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_in_the_Box_(Philadelphia) still unsolved Philadelphia Cold Case]] that there isn't the usual "''The following story is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event''" disclaimer at the beginning of the episode.
** ''Jurisprudence'' was based on Pennsylvania's real-life [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kids_for_cash_scandal "Kids for Cash" scandal]], in which corrupt judges handed out harsh sentences to youth offenders for even the most minor infractions in exchange for kickbacks from a private company that ran the juvenile detention centers the kids were sent to.
** And many others, while not referencing a specific case, do reference the hot-button social issues of the time--''It's Raining Men'' (Set in the early 80's, just as the AIDS crisis was beginning) Others happen against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Women's liberation, the dot-com bubble, the SpaceRace and so on.
