* ViewerGenderConfusion: Unless you know that Felicia Pearson is Snoop (the credits don't connect characters to actors), it can take viewers a long time to realize that Snoop is a girl. There is a brief shot where you see her picture on the unit's case board that lists her real name, but it's pretty easy to miss.

** After playing a perpetual screw-up cop here, Jim True-Frost would play the straightest of straight-arrow cops Eliot Ness in ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire''.

** Out of the child characters, Michael Lee is probably the only one with a significant fandom, thanks to a combination of his warm-hearted personality, [[TheWoobie tragic childhood]] and signs of genuine badassery. His [[KickTheSonOfABitch pounding the shit out of]] [[TakeThatScrappy Kenard]] didn't hurt, either.

** Chris Partlow, who's strangely likable despite (or perhaps ''[[EvilIsCool because of]]'') his being ''the'' single most prolific killer in the entire series.

** Pretty much nobody likes Cheese Wagstaff, as like Ziggy, he's both an unpleasant jerk and a complete moron who manages only to ruin the plans of more likable and sympathetic characters. No wonder people rejoiced when he ended up as the [[spoiler: [[UndignifiedDeath unceremonious]] [[AssholeVictim last death]] in the series.]]

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The series was initially rejected by Creator/{{HBO}}, who weren't even sure that they wanted a police procedural in their programming lineup - they had to be convinced by Creator/DavidSimon (who had previously collaborated with them on 2000's ''Series/TheCorner'') to produce a pilot episode. The resulting season didn't fare so great in the ratings, and the series was on the verge of cancellation - until critics started promoting the show as one of the best new series in years. The show subsequently survived multiple attempts at cancellation, lasted five seasons, and has been regarded as one of the best dramatic series produced from the 21st century.

** At a reunion of some of the cast in 2014, it was revealed that the actors weren't all that satisfied with the show at first. "I told my agent to call ''Series/LawAndOrder''", said Wendell Pierce; Sonja Sohn said, "A lot of us were like, 'I don't know, it's kind of slow.'"

** Herc, for being a belligerent and corrupt idiot who doesn't seem to learn anything despite having multiple opportunities to do so. Whenever he gets chewed out by his superiors for doing something stupid/illegal, it's almost always entirely deserved.
