      • In their review of the second season of Philip Marlowe, Private Eye, the New York Times said, "Mr. Boothe creates an emotionally convincing Marlowe. His private eye prefers to be an objective observer rather than a soiled participant but, when pushed, he leaves no doubt about who is in charge. Dark, dour, almost sullen but not quite sour, this Marlowe would have had Raymond Chandler's approval."

      • HBO originally ended the series in 1983 because Powers Boothe had other commitments. However, after observing the success of Murder, She Wrote and other mystery shows in the mid 1980s, HBO resurrected the show for a second, six-episode season.

      • Starting with Season 2, the series was produced in Canada. The title design and theme music from Season 1 was also changed to a static opening credits sequence.
