- Ensemble Darkhorse: Chuck and Bob. Originally, the writers intended for Chuck to be Peter's murderer. But as season one progressed, Chuck and Bob became so popular the producers realized they couldn't write them off the show, so they changed the identity of the murderer to Chester.
- Who ALSO was not written out of the show...
- Benson DuBois was also pretty popular in his own right and ended up with his own spin-off that outlasted the original show.
- Informed Attractiveness: While Jessica Tate was by no means difficult on the eyes (and her personality and red hair certainly didn't hurt), the way the show set her up as being simply irresistible to virtually any man who crossed her path was a little over the top.
