Special Victims Unit:

Fin's last name (Tutuola) means "The gentle one" in the African Yoruba language. (The actor's name is Ice-T but his REAL name is... guess what? Tracy. hehe. LOL)

Mariska Hargitay keeps a photo of her mother Jayne Mansfield on her desk on the set.

The following statement appears at the beginning of each and every episode: "In the criminal justice system, sexually based crimes are considered especially heinous. In New York city, the dedicated detectives who investigate this vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the special victims unit. These are their stories."

Mariska Hargitay's real-life father, Mickey Hargitay appears in the episode "Control". He plays a man on an escalator, who is seen speaking to Detective Benson.


Law and Order:
Random facts I found on www.imdb.com:
Factual errors: In "Atonement", one of the beat officers calls in the purse snatching as a 10-22. A 10-22 means to "disregard last statement", not a purse snatching.
Factual errors: In more than one episode, characters refer to the District Attorneys of various New Jersey counties. New Jersey has county prosecutors, not District Attorneys.
Errors in geography: The episode "Wannabe" has a criminal leaving a gun on the subway tracks of the 7 train, "near the Brooklyn Bridge station". The 7 train does not stop at, or anywhere near, the Brooklyn Bridge.

Charmed Bloopers:
Factual errors: In "Magic Hour", we see a full moon. The next day there is a total eclipse of the sun which requires a new or dark moon.

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): At the end of "A Witch's Tail", Phoebe misspells her own name ("Pheobe") when signing her divorce papers.
Continuity: In the episode "A Witch In Time" the character Phoebe is running down the street in a pair of floppy brown moccasin boots. When she stops running she is suddenly wearing black leather healed boots.

Revealing mistakes: In the episode "Astral Monkey" the bandage on the doctors neck switches from left to right in between shots.

  • Crew or equipment visible: In the second season episode, "P3 H20" when Prue and Phoebe drive up to the lake in her black Mazda Miata, a cameraman and boom mike are reflected in the driver's side door as they move up to get the shot of the girls inside the car.

  • OMG! I just found this peice of trivia on Law and Order... I happen to like it... What do you think?
    After her departure from the series, Jill Hennessy wrote and directed the film Acting Class, The (2000) using Law & Order's sets. Many L&O cast members such as Jerry Orbach and Angie Harmon volunteered to appear in her film, which was a mock-documentary. The show was known for underplaying the background stories of its characters. During the 1995-96 season, hints were dropped that the characters of Jack McCoy and Claire Kincaid were lovers (a fact confirmed in a later episode). Many fans enjoy spotting where and when these subtle hints occur in each episode. The distinctive "thunk-thunk" sound effect used in between scenes was created by combining close to a dozen sounds, including that of a group of monks stamping on a floor!

    Charmed Trivia:
    Alyssa Milano replaced Lori Rom in the role of Phoebe Halliwell.
    In Episode #3.6 "Primrose Empath", Prue (Shannen Doherty) gains superpowers to fight the demon Vinceres (Morgan Weisser). The fight scene in the manor is very similar of the scene in Matrix, The (1999) when Neo (Keanu Reeves) fights Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) in the railway station.
    The Book of Shadows weighs 9 pounds, 6 ounces and is the most valuable thing on set.
    The actress with the most Charmed Fan Mail is actually not one of the main stars of the show. Actress Finola Hughes who plays Prue, Piper, Phoebe and Paige's mother receives the most fan mail from Charmed series viewers.

    The Book of Shadows is almost entirely hand-painted.
    Alyssa Milano like the drawings in the book so much she the artist paint murals on her walls at home.

    Alternate Versions for Charmed:

    In the episode Charmed and Dangerous, there were more scenes. The scene where Piper was writing her will was longer. It included a part where Leo asks what he is going to do with the book of shadows, and Piper tells him to give it to one of his charges. There was also a scene where Phoebe and Cole are writing the spell to vanquish the Source. In Witch Way Now, there was a deleted scene where Leo and Darryl searched the witch hunter's office and they got caught.

    The syndicated airings on TNT are cut by a little bit. It is most noticeable in episode 1.22 when we hear the sisters calling Prue's name when she's unconsious, and in 3.02 when they freeze Kate's parents.

    The original ending of Oh My Goddess Part 2 did not end with Chris waving his hand and Leo blowing up. It originally showed Chris waving his hand and Leo disappeared and you see him in a cage in Valhalla.
