The writing, much of it by series creator Sterling Silliphant (who later wrote the classic Oscar-winning film ''Film/InTheHeatOfTheNight''), can be clever, nuanced, and heartfelt. In fact, the series was essentially an {{Anthology}} with two recurring characters that allowed Silliphant to explore a vast number of topics as he felt like it. However, whether due to a changed social landscape, the dawn of the cynical age, or the fact that invariably any drama will have scenes that miss their mark, the series is also the victim of extensive {{Narm}}; it was made in a period that still falls thematically into the era exemplified by TheFifties (as opposed to TheSixties). The series also heavily subverts HollywoodAtlas stereotypes, as ''Route 66'' had a roving production set-up and episodes were filmed on location throughout FlyoverCountry.

* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Between swim trunks, lots of [[ShirtlessScene shirtless scenes]] and wet shirt scenes, almost every inch of the men gets its turn on display. Buz's tiny black Speedo gets special mention.

unfortunate implications need citations
* [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]]: ** Buz Murdock. See the UnfortunateImplications and FamilyVersusCareer examples on this page. To be fair to the character and writers, there's a discrepancy of half a century of changing social norms and two waves of feminism creating ValuesDissonance.

** And in fact, the producers had originally wanted Andre Previn's "Like Young" to serve as the theme tune but couldn't get it, so Riddle (who had already been signed to compose the weekly scores - executive producer Herbert B. Leonard did not like the idea of a RecycledSoundtrack, so both this and his ''NakedCity'' had original scores) was asked to write a piece in the same vein.
