* TechnologyMarchesOn: The very first scene of the black-and-white pilot takes place in a crowded theater where Max is sitting in the audience and begins with [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness a narrator explaining]] how important it is for an agent like Max to remain inconspicuous and not blow his cover by drawing attention to himself... right before Max's shoe phone rings. In such an environment in the 1960s, a phone ringing right in the audience would certainly have drawn a lot of confused stares, but after 2000, you'd come across as rude but not the least bit suspicious.
