- Actor Allusion:
- CW complains about the "mediocrity" of the Masked Man reveal. F. Murray Abraham portrayed Salieri in "Amadeus," who ends his story by proclaiming himself the "patron saint" of "all mediocrities in the world."
- Danny Pudi's character has a motivational monologue about Ducktales. Pudi voices Huey in the reboot, Ducktales 2017.
- Billing Displacement: Despite Poppy being essentially the co-lead along with Ian, Charlotte Nicdao is billed sixth in the credits. This is because other than Rob McElhenney (who gets top billing) and F. Murray Abraham (who gets the And Starring credit) the cast is listed in alphabetical order.
- The Cameo: Both John Dimaggio and Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) play recurring characters in the series.
- The Danza: David Brittlesbee shares the same first name as his actor, David Hornsby.
- Playing Against Type: Danny Pudi is best-known for playing Abed on Community, who's very much The Spock but has a good heart. Brad Bakshi is a smooth, oily manipulator who is obsessed with ownership of people.
