Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Series/WithoutATrace'', which premiered a year before. Likely because they were both produced Creator/JerryBruckheimer, they followed a very similar format--an opening sequence in which we meet the victim and get a hint of what led to their disappearance/death, victim disappears/is seen dead, the cops are brought in, we get numerous interviews with friends and family that lead to flashbacks that start to spell out what happened culminating in one that finally tells us everything, then the victim is found dead or alive/killer is found and we get a final montage of the cops and the victim's loved ones.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: The airings on ION Television edited out several words heard on the original CBS airing, such as "bitch", "bastard", "spic"[[note]]racial slur for a Hispanic person[[/note]], "polack"[[note]]racial slur for someone from Poland[[/note]], and the ever-popular homophobic slurs "fag" and "faggot", even though the last two words were thrown around ''endlessly'' in the season one episode "A Time Of Hate".
** Also, the season one episode "The Letter" [[note]]which involved the brutal rape and murder of a Black woman by White men in 1939[[/note]] has the actual murder scene changed from its original 2004 airing after complaints were made about it. However, this trope was averted in the season two episode "Strange Fruit" [[note]]where a Black ''teenage boy'' is brutally beaten and lynched in 1963 by White supremacists in front of a little girl[[/note]] was not edited. Similarly, in the season five episode "Family 8108", the anti-Asian slurs "gook", "Jap" and "Tojo" are left intact.

* HeyItsThatGuy: You will recognize a ''lot'' of the victims or people involved in cases, [[RetroactiveRecognition usually before they became famous]]--or in some cases, even afterwards. Such as Creator/KimCoates, [[{{Series/Lost}} Maggie Grace]], [[{{Series/Firefly}} Summer]] [[Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles Glau]], [[Series/{{Castle}} Seamus Dever]], [[Series/{{Leverage}} Aldis Hodge]], [[BandOfBrothers Kirk]] [[Series/{{Fringe}} Acevedo]], [[Series/{{Heroes}} Brea Grant]], [[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryMurderHouse Kate]] [[Series/HouseOfCardsUS Mara]], [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Apollo]], [[Series/HartOfDixie Wilson Bethel]], Creator/JenniferLawrence, Creator/MaeWhitman, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Amber Benson]] and [[Series/MadMen Christina]] [[{{Series/Firefly}} Hendricks]]. A HeyItsThatVoice variant is in the episode ''Thrill Kill'', where the killer is played by [[Franchise/MassEffect Raphael]] [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Sbarge]], known to gamers as {{BioWare}}'s MrFanservice. Another variant is in the form of the victim in "Forever Blue" voicing [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Megumi Kitaniji]]
** And if they're playing the Victim Of The Week, depending on their level of fame, this can even result in a few minor examples of DeadStarWalking.
** In the episode with Creator/JenniferLawrence, the actress playing her character's mother also played [[TheHungerGames Katniss Everdeen's]] mother in the movies.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the Japanese-dubbed version: Well, let's say that [[AtsukoTanaka both]] [[Anime/QueensBlade Claudette]] and [[Franchise/GhostInTheShell Motoko Kusanagi]] are trying to solve the murders of Claudette's [[Creator/KaoriMizuhashi both]] [[AyakoKawasumi sisters]] and many other members from the cast of ''Anime/QueensBlade'' along with Motoko's [[AkioOhtsuka Batou's death]] and the other members from [[Franchise/GhostIntheShell Section 9.]]
