* ActorAllusion:
** In an episode with a science fiction con, a guy in a [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaClassic original Galactica Cylon suit]] walks past "Face". In the episode in question, it's actually Hannibal in the costume. The ActorAllusion was all Dirk Benedict's idea. While filming at Universal Studios for the second season episode "Steel", Dirk spotted a park employee dressed as a Cylon, and decided he wanted to film a little nod to his days as Starbuck. The director told him it was a dumb idea, but let him do it anyway. So, they had the Cylon-clad actor stroll nonchalantly across the frame while Face was all "don't I know you?" Fortunately for Dirk, the scene ended up being quite funny and they kept it in the credits up to season 5.
** There was also George Peppard's allusion to his role as Series/{{Banacek}}, where he played a similar role, by having Hannibal spout even more [[IceCreamKoan off kilter words of wisdom]] in "The Big Squeeze".
*** Another one for Peppard. In the Episode "The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas", Amy mentions that it's a shame Hannibal's being chased by the military as he is "a terrific actor" after Hannibal goes to great lengths explaining how he'll play his "character". A reference to Peppard's infamously stringent adherence to method acting, even when playing unchallenging roles.

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Dwight Schultz has said one of the scariest things during the filming was how blank the scripts would often be.
** Also, the writers frequently would not write the tag and then would just say to the actors "just make something up," or told Dwight Schultz and Dirk Benedict to loosely write up a tag.
* ThrowItIn: An extremely frequent occurrence, if grudgingly. There was a heck of a lot of {{Improv}} going on by the actors and notably Dwight Schultz, and though the writers frequently got mad by how the actors would go off-script or ad-lib lines, they often (if grudgingly) agreed that it should be kept in.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: More like Actively Sabotaged by the Network. The show was considered politically incorrect (showing a positive view of Vietnam veterans, among other things) and its success completely unexpected; it was subjected to InvisibleAdvertising, the network officials and producers actually badmouthing the show to the press, it was made a 'bad move' to write for, so despite its popularity it eventually succumbed to cancellation.
* TropeNamer for:
** ATeamFiring: Nobody is ''ever'' shot in one of the shootouts.
** ATeamMontage: ...at about the 48-minute mark in ''every'' episode.

* HeyItsThatGuy: LiamNeeson, [[Film/{{District9}} Wikus]], [[TheHangover Phil]] and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson versus [[SeventhHeaven Mary Camden]], [[spoiler:[[Film/{{Watchmen}} Nite Owl]] and MajorDad]]. Also [[MadMen Don Draper]] makes an appearance. It's just as ''awesome'' as it sounds.
** Creator/BrianBloom is Pike.
** Bobby Trang from ''Series/CombatHospital'' is one of Lieutenant Sosa's minions.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/CoreyBurton delivers [[spoiler:the original show's opening monologue at the end.]]
* PromotedFanboy: Sharlto Copley was a fan of the series as a child.
* StillbornFranchise: While hardly a flop, the film only grossed $170 million on a $110 million budget. The cast and director expressed interest but ultimately concluded that it wasn't profitable enough to risk it.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[BoyzNTheHood John Singleton]] was originally set to direct when the project was at Universal.

* PromotedFanboy: Sharlto Copley loved the A-Team as a kid and his favourite character was Murdock. It even got better from him getting the role: he and Dwight Schultz (the original Murdock) got a chance to meet and hang out, and simply loved each other. Dwight teared up watching Sharlto's audition video and after watching it got up and [[HeartWarmingMoments gave Sharlto a hug, told him he ''was'' Murdock, and promptly wrote on his (Dwight's) site "Murdock is dead. Long live Murdock!" because he loved Sharlto's portrayal so much.]]
