* DawsonCasting: Notably Averted: The character's stated and implied ages were reflected by the actors who played them, bar some exceptions: the actors who played Alice and the Guardian were in their late 20's.
* TheDanza: Ryan, though as it's most likely just a coincidence seeing how he's no more prominent than most of the characters.
* ExecutiveVeto: The executives refused to allow smoking to be shown. This was the only thing that wasn't allowed. This includes prostitution, slavery, underage drinking and attempted rape.
** Three Franchise/PowerRangers pop up in this: [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Conner]], [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Tyzonn]] and [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Flynn]].
** Also many many other actors from various series of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and/or ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''. Mostly because all of them were filmed in New Zealand and there's a limited pool of actors.
** Trudy is [[Series/OutrageousFortune Loretta]], and, as above, an ally of one set of [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Power Rangers]].
* RealLifeRelative: Ebony, Java, and Siva, who play sisters on the show, are played by the real-life Cassie sisters.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: One has to wonder how the series would have gone if the producers didn't have to deal with the actors leaving so often.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Clearly the Virus struck in 1998, what with all the CD players instead of iPods being used and traded. Notably, the survival machines made by Jack and Dal in the first series were plausible.
** Although CD players are easier to power than iPods, which need a computer to charge from. It cold be an ease of use thing.
** The Technos also have computers with CRT screens!
