Added DiffLines:

* DirectedByCastMember: Adam Arkin directed 'Evil... and His Brother Ziggy' and 'Shelf Life'.

Added DiffLines:

* HideYourPregnancy / RealLifeWritesThePlot: Sarah Shahi was pregnant during the last episodes of season two, so she was quickly written into a story-line of being interviewed by the FBI and wasn't shown standing up for the rest of the season.


* HeyItsThatGuy: Roman is played by Garret Dillahunt, the actor who plays Cromartie on ''TheSarahConnorChronicles''. In a minor variant, he appeared on Life ''before'' [=SCC=] even started, and [[spoiler:returned for season 2]]. Dani is also the very first ghost on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''.
** There must have been some connection between ''Life'' and ''{{Series/Deadwood}}''. Besides Dillahunt, who played two characters on ''Deadwood'', there was Creator/BrentSexton (Bobby Stark on ''Life'', Harry Manning on ''Deadwood''), Creator/RobinWeigert (Karen Davis on ''Life'', Calamity Jane on ''Deadwood''), and Creator/TitusWelliver (Kyle Hollis on ''Life'', Silas Adams on ''Deadwood''), as well as Creator/WilliamSanderson (who played E.B. Farnum on ''Deadwood'') in a guest part. Almost all were prominent characters on both shows.
*** Several of the cast later appeared on Series/{{Terriers}} - Donal Logue (Tidwell/Hank Dolworth) being the most prominent.
** Someone had to have recognized the titular character as [[Series/BandOfBrothers Major Winters]]. Skip Muck (who is also [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Gabriel]]) and Bull Randlemann turn up too.
** There exists the possibility that when Crews [[spoiler: sent]] Rachel Seybolt [[spoiler: off to safety]], he didn't send her far, only to [[Series/VeronicaMars Neptune in the care of his good friend Tom Griffiths.]]
** Charlie's dad is engaged to [[Series/MadMen Joan Holloway]], when she's not being [[{{Series/Firefly}} YoSaffBridge]].
** Ted is [[Series/SonsOfAnarchy Ethan Zobelle]]. Talk about polar opposites!
** Captain Tidwell was a revolutionary during the [[Film/ThePatriot War for Independence]], and once took on Film/{{Blade}}.
** One of the writers, Scott M. Gimple, also previously created a CopShow of his own -- ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}''
** [[Series/TrueBlood Sheriff Dearborn]] shows up as a drunk homeless man, Nigel is the Prison Warden [[spoiler:whose StanfordPrisonExperiment {{expy}} goes terribly wrong]], Tommy Mickens is the nephew of two shut-ins, Rene is a serial killer groupie (go figure) and Jessica shows up as a rape victim.
** The Zen professor is [[TwentyFour Mike Novick]].
** [[Film/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Luke]] is one of the "prisoners" in "Not For Nothing".
** [[Series/TheSopranos Devin Pillsbury]] helps run a meal service for disabled people.
** [[Series/SonsOfAnarchy Dawn Trager]] - when she's not being [[{{Series/Supernatural}} Meg]] - is a [[spoiler:serial killer groupie who decides to commit a few murders herself]]. Daddy would be proud.
** [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Bela]] is the troubled younger sister of a victim of the week. Guess all that [[Series/TheWalkingDead zombie fighting]] and [[Series/TheVampireDiaries werewolf hunting]] must have gotten to her.
*** [[EarthFinalConflict Boone]] is the conservative husband [[spoiler:who murdered his wife and attempted to frame his sister-in-law in order to further his bid for Senate]].
** [[Film/HarryPotter Narcissa Malfoy]] is the security specialist, and is married to Charlie Crews in real life.
