** There were plans for a fourth season, which would have continued by revealing that Richie and Eddie getting shot by the Anti-Terrorism Squad at the end of "[[{{Recap/BottomCarnival}} Carnival]]" was a dream (mocking ''Series/{{Dallas}}). Another option was to have Richie and Eddie simply survive their shot-wounds, and let the show continue as if nothing has happened.

* OutOfOrder: The third episode, "Contest", The noticeable differences in the set with the organ being on the "fourth" wall, stairs opposite way, and the fact Richie has shorter hair than usual as well as Eddie visibly showing hair and missing his sideburns indicate that this episode was filmed much earlier than the other episodes in the series.
