* NewYorkCity: The location shooting, and access to the Big Apple's wide pool of acting talent (including actors who were appearing on Broadway at the time) certainly didn't hurt this series.

* BriefAccentImitation: [=McCall=] imitates a [[AmericanAccents [=NooYawk=] accent]] for comedic effect to Mickey, repeating and mocking a very irritating and unhelpful New Yorker he was hoping would give him information.

* ColdWar: Occasional episodes revolved around the [[MysteriousPast operations]] that [=McCall=] performed against the [[DirtyCommunists Soviets]] coming back to haunt him... some which ended in disaster and which he felt he needed to clean up.

* {{Defictionalization}}: Sometimes while on location on the streets of New York, Woodward would add money to parking meters that he noticed were about to expire, to save complete strangers a ticket -- an act that some NYC officials called (mildly) illegal. He would often leave a small card marked "Compliments of The Equalizer." Once the show became a hit, Woodward was also approached for assistance by so many people he started carrying leaflets for organisations that could actually help people in trouble.

He is helped in his investigations by contacts acquired during his intelligence years, ranging from scientists to mercenaries. Notable among these -- more so in later years, when health problems forced actor Woodward to slow down -- is recurring sidekick Mickey Kostmayer (KeithSzarabajka), a junior agent who doesn't quite understand what drives [=McCall=]'s crusade but is ferociously loyal anyway (it's stated in one episode that Mickey had been convicted of {{fragging}} his superior officer, and [=McCall=] proved his innocence). [=McCall=] also reluctantly does assignments for his former boss, known only as [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Control]] (Robert Lansing), who in payment turns a blind eye to this wholesale 'borrowing' of Agency personnel.

The character's past is never fully revealed to the audience, but is implied to be full of amoral shadows and secrets. He is a ruthless and pragmatic man, a killer many times over -- but also a sensitive and honourable man, whose humanity has somehow survived years of terrible disillusionment. The series' expert juxtaposition of all of these elements -- and the flat refusal to apologise for ''or'' justify any of them -- is what has made it a cult classic. (Well, that and the cool [[ThePolice Stewart Copeland]] soundtrack.)
