  • Follow the Leader: Competing networks tried to start up their own flashy crime dramas. The only one to survive more than three episodes was 21 Jump Street.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show was moved to air opposite Dallas, then moved to Sundays.
  • Shout-Out: Several episodes of the show "borrowed" plots from various movies, such as High Noon or The Trouble with Harry. Season 3's "Shadow in the Dark" was pretty much one giant allusion to Manhunter, which Michael Mann himself directed.
    • In Season 2's "Out Where the Buses Don't Run", Weldon's computer is named after his ex-wife, Lorraine. It also happened to be the name of the Amiga prototype that appeared at the 1984 Consumer Electronics Show. The Amiga prototype took its name from the motherboard, which was named Lorraine, after the company president's wife.
  • What Could Have Been: Olmos was offered the chance to reprise his role as Castillo in the 2006 film, but was busy filming Battlestar Galactica at the time.
