Burke's Law

Who Killed Eleanora Davis? - S1-E13

Trivia: In-jokes were the 1960s equivalent of DVD Easter eggs. Here, Burke does a double take at a fake tombstone in the roadside horror show. The epitaph reads, "He called Bat Masterson a Liar!" Prior to Burke's Law, Gene Barry starred in the title role of the Western series Bat Masterson.. (00:05:30)

Who Killed Alex Debbs? - S1-E6

Trivia: Sammy Davis Junior's offbeat character, Cordwainer Bird, is an in-joke on the part of scriptwriter Harlan Ellison, who uses the Bird pseudonym to disassociate himself from productions that substantially rewrite/change his stories.

Who Killed the Rest? - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: "Who Killed the Rest?" The boat we see speeding toward shore explodes - but in the brief shot of it just before the detonation, the substitution of a model is apparent. The two vessels don't look anything alike. (00:02:00)
