Burke's Law

Who Killed the Rest? - S2-E25

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!"

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..

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.
