* PlayingAgainstType: As with [[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry The Federation President]], [[Series/{{Resurrection}} Henry Langston]] and [[WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries Shyir Rev]], we have Creator/KurtwoodSmith playing a much nicer character than he usually plays. Like the latter two, we also have Smith playing a better father than [[Series/That70sShow Red Forman]] and [[Film/DeadPoetsSociety Mr. Perry]]. He's playing one of the most famous cops in fiction, whereas one of Smith's more famous roles was [[Film/RoboCop1987 Clarence]] [[CopKiller Boddicker]].
