During outdoor scenes filmed for the 1999-2000 first season, the Washington Monument can be seen in the background encased in an elaborate blue mesh scaffolding used while the monument was undergoing a major renovation. However, in stock overhead shots used during the same episodes, the Washington Monument appears without the scaffolding (i.e., as it normally appears).
The special post-9/11 episode was broadcast without the regular opening credits. Instead, the episode began with the cast, out of character, speaking about the episode, followed by credits on a black screen.
The original broadcast and syndicated versions of the entire second season were in a 1.33:1 full-screen format, except on select HD broadcasters. The DVD versions of the second season episodes are in the filmed wide-screen format of 1.78:1
