      • In the United Kingdom, this story was the most watched episode of 1978, when it was first broadcast on Saturday 30th December (BBC 1, 9:15 p.m.). (Check the date - just 11 days after the States. Ahh, those glorious days before $ky!)

      • This episode has the minor curiosity of having two characters with the same name – there are two Franks. Normally, such occurrence would be avoided so not to cause any confusion for the viewer.

      • John Herzfeld was introduced as Starsky's younger brother Nicholas, after Paul Michael Glaser continued to be unhappy with the contract binding him to the series. Herzfeld bears a noticeable similarity to Glaser, and apparently Glaser himself had a say in the casting. One idea reportedly considered was that in the final episode of the season, 'Sweet Revenge', Starsky was to die from gun-shot wounds, and the following season he would be replaced by Nick, by then cleaned up and a Police Officer. The idea was never carried through – the show finally finished at the end of a fourth season due to slipping ratings, and Starsky was kept alive.

      • This episode is usually found billed as 'Starsky's Brother', but it can be very occasionally found listed as 'Starsky's Little Brother'.
