- Real-Life Relative: Gary's mother is played by Joyce Bulifant, John Mallory Asher's actual mother.
- Recycled: The Series: It's lampshaded in the very first episode.
- Screwed by the Network: USA never aired the last six episodes. Instead, they aired a year later on special airings on the Sci-Fi Channel.
- What Could Have Been: Seth Green auditioned for Gary and came very close to getting cast.
