- Hilarious in Hindsight: The 2019 revival of this series' descendant, Press Your Luck, airs on ABC, bringing the whole thing full-circle.
- Older Than They Think: The villain popping up on cards in front of the contestant? Shuffling dollar amounts? Close-ups of squares? Split-screen for the final spins? A board that got cheaper as the series neared its end? Second Chance did them all first.
- Retroactive Recognition; Maggie Brown and Jack Campion, two of the "contestants" on this series' pilot, later appeared in the same capacity on the pilot of Press Your Luck. Brown would go on to be an actual contestant on the latter.
YMMV / Second Chance
