Trivia: Arliss

  • Actor Allusion: In one episode, Arliss praises the first Batman movie (in which Wuhl had a small part), but is uninterested in the sequels.
  • Adored by the Network: HBO produced seven seasons of the show despite its consistently low ratings and reviews well below the station's standard. HBO appears to have believed that it targeted a niche audience that otherwise would not subscribe to HBO, although it's widely rumored that Wuhl simply knew the right people at the network.
