Extreme - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jarod is being thrown into the swimming pool by Zed, the gang leader, as a sort of initiation, there is a shot where Jarod is tied up in chains sitting in a chair at the bottom of the pool. Another character is set to throw in the key just to the next of Jarod and he is supposed to fall over and get it. In the shot just before he falls over, you can see a crewmen's arm holding a chain attached to the chair in order to help Jarod fall over.

Toy Surprise - S2-E12

Trivia: For some reason there is a picture of Batman's eye on Miss Parker's desk. It is between the picture of her and her father and a candy bowl. It looks like the Val Kilmer Batman, but I'm not sure. (00:00:25)
