- Actor-Shared Background: Michele Weaver is biracial like her character Luly.
- Follow the Leader: The show is a family drama in the same vein of Parenthood, A Million Little Things, and This Is Us. The oversaturation of this particular genre on network television is likely what led to the show getting canned after a single season.
- Queer Character, Queer Actor:
- Blue Chapman is trans like his character J.J.
- J. August Richards came out as gay, in part, because he was so inspired by fans' response to Oliver.
- What Could Have Been: Had season 2 been greenlit, the show would have seen Anthony struggling to take Theo on as an apprentice at the Crab Shack and the fallout of him hiding the fact he's Luly's biological father. Other plot lines would have included the cast trying to stop the new owners of the Crab Shack from turning it into a condominium complex, Larry falling off the sobriety wagon, Oliver starting clinical trials investigating the cancer that killed Scott, and the formation of a "council of moms".
- Per Word of God, the show would have fully addressed the fact that Robin is dating a cop in 2020 had it been renewed.
