Trivia: When Harm is landing the 747, there is a camera shot of Air Force One. (The Presidential seal which is located near the forward doors is briefly visible) There is also a scene immediately afterwards of vehicles following the plane on the runway. These two scenes are from the Harrison Ford movie, Air Force One.
Trivia: Most of Catalina's speeches in Spanish (the ones that are not translated) are actually actress Nadine Velasquez speaking to the camera, addressing the viewers. For example, in episode 1-11 (Barn Burner), although it appears that she is throwing insults at Joy, she is actually saying "I want to take this moment to thank our Latino audience for watching. And for those of you who can understand me but who are not Latino, I want to commend you for learning a second language".
Trivia: Christina is thrown out of her house after the revelation that she's been lying about her life, and leaves town on a Greyhound as the camera pans down to reveal a sign saying "Now leaving Point Pleasant. Please come back soon.". This is almost identical (both the shot of the sign and the story behind it) to the Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode "Becoming" (2x21) - both the show's executive producer (Marti Noxon) and the writer of this episode (Diego Gutierrez) are former BtVS writers.
Trivia: The working title for "Life on Mars" was "Ford Granada" - a reference to the car that appeared in the 1970s Police Drama "The Sweeney". Related trivia: when "Life On Mars" was screened by a German TV Network, it was retitled "Gefangen in den 70ern" which translates into English as "Trapped In The 70s"
Trivia: All the sets in the dream sequence, particularly Nick's loft, are filled with props referencing Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books. They include white rabbits, flamingos, walruses, a squeaky-toy caterpillar - even a half-eaten piece of cake in Nick's fridge. The episode also has several background extras in Wonderland-style costumes, and numerous other references to the books, such as Nick literally falling through the looking glass at the end.
Trivia: Season 4 - Episode 4 "Thirteen"; The episode revolves around a man killing people with the same first names as the thirteen apostles (Mary Magdalene being the 13th), and killing them in a similar fashion in which the apostles died. At one point, Colby and David find a box with a mannequin's head in it. This is a reference to the film Se7en, in which seven people are killed for committing one of the seven deadly sins. The film ends with the main characters finding an actual head in a box.
Trivia: As the detectives are trying to find out from Doug Hutchinson's character where the victim is being held, the detectives find out he is somewhat claustrophobic. They decide to scare him and put him in a cupboard without any light. This is very similar to Doug Hutchinson's character in The Green Mile. The main characters decide to punish him and force him into a dark and small room.
Trivia: Here and in several other episodes, Burke's Law was one of the first TV series to break with longstanding Hollywood prejudices by hiring Latino actors like Cesar Romero to play Latino roles. In this episode, three years before becoming the Joker on Batman, Romero plays a Mexican police chief interrogating Amos Burke, whose rather prescient line to him is, "The joke's on the joker - I've been framed!" (00:06:30)
Trivia: Zoe McLellan, who plays Agent Brody, was a main cast member in the final season of JAG, the parent series of the NCIS franchise.
