** The mind control and interrogation techniques seen in "Sweet Land of Liberty" were very real- the episode was based on the government's MK Ultra experiments.

** For the most part, the makeup job used in "The Depth of Beauty" is incredibly well done. But they only applied it during the interview scene where the woman unmasks, meaning closeups of her eyes in other scenes lack the heavy scarring.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: A teenager in the HollywoodTourettes episode was a movie buff who couldn't enjoy movies for fear of making outbursts in a public theater. A few years later watching movies at home using a VCR would become commonplace.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: For all the complaining about the series being preachy, this is exactly why such a change happened. Many of these social issues needed to be addressed.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The apartment fire effect in season 7's "Smoke Screen" is a terribly done overlay that doesn't look close to real.

** Many of the issues that Quincy fought for in the 70s to 80s STILL persist in RealLife as of 2015. Drug companies shelving vital medications because there isn't enough profit? Plastic surgeons being allowed to practice with only superficial medical credentials and no real certifications to their skills? Companies cutting corners on safety to save a few bucks? Just to name a few...

* HarsherInHindsight: In "Let Me Light The Way", Quincy attempts to persuade the law-enforcement bureaucracy to support the nationwide use of rape kits to collect evidence of sexual assaults. The penny-pinching reluctance of an FBI official to fund Quincy's plans seems a lot harsher when one considers that, forty years later, thousands of the rape kits which RealLife [=ME=]s and activists like Quincy worked so hard to make available have been left sitting in the evidence room, collected but never analyzed, because it would be expensive to ''test'' them.
