- It's a Jack Webb production.
- And, of course, the Mark VII Limited production logo.
- Awesome Music:
- The theme music.
- The occasional northern mockingbird in the background.
- Ho Yay:
- Not so much between Reed and Malloy. But witness Malloy's Freak Out on Tony in "I.A.D-Blackmail". It's half Et Tu, Brute?, half Was It All a Lie?.
- Malloy, the
confirmedhappy bachelor, has occasional dalliances with women but dislikes being pursued by them (though it may be down to thinking this is 'improper' or some such).
- In the episode "Vice Versa", Malloy is jumpy and nervous when Reed does the driving. Maybe Freud Was Right? There is also this conversation in the middle of the ep: "Why don't you just relax and leave the driving to me?" "That's why I can't relax, you're doing the driving." Reed replies, "I haven't had any complaints from Jean." The Death Glare that follows is pretty epic.
- Product Placement: It seems that about the time they started featuring American Motors Matadors as the primary squad cars, Reed and Malloy started pursuing a lot more AMC cars. Not to mention that Malloy buys an AMC Matador to replace his Mustang in season six.
- The Scrappy: Judy, Pete's season six girlfriend. Besides the natural "he won't be single anymore" stuff, many fans either just don't like how she was written or think she was too old for Pete.
- They Just Didn't Care: Due to glare issues, the windshield was removed from the car used for the many in-car scenes, causing the spring-loaded wiper arms to park against the dashboard. No attempt was made to disguise this.
- Shipping: A lot of Malloy/Reed, as one might expect.
