  • Fake American: Walter is played by Theo James, a native of Oxford, England.
  • Friday Night Death Slot: Averted. It was originally set to be put here after its first two episodes aired on Tuesdays at 10, but having better ratings than Vegas (the timeslot's previous occupant), CBS decided at the last minute to switch the two shows' places on the schedule. Ironically, neither series was renewed.

    • It's nice that Emerson Cod is still getting work.
