Continuity mistake: When Archie tries to kill Burke with the fireplace poker, Burke knocks him out with a punch that sends him flying over the back of the couch. The stunt man lands on his side, facing the couch. But when Burke looks over at the unconscious Archie, he's lying face up and several feet farther to the left than the stunt man was in the previous shot. (00:48:20)Jean G
Continuity mistake: Burke's Rolls leaves a parking space in front of a restaurant with a distinctive peaked roof facade. After a lengthy conversation with Tim during a drive through L.A. streets (in one direction with no turns), the car is shown again pulling away from the same restaurant. (00:11:25)Jean G
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!"
