The company that Eileen works for, and which she eventually sues for sexual discrimination, is referred to throughout as "D,C and H." We learn those letters stand for "Dewey, Conham, and Howe" - an ancient joke-name for a law firm (along with its variations "Dewey, Cheatam and Howe" and "Cheatam and Steele"). See more »
When Byron shows up for Dexter's wedding, Dexter makes the comment that the bride is ready for the "Rumble In The Jungle". This wedding scene is happening in late 1972 or early 1973. The "Rumble In The Jungle" (boxing match between Ali & Foreman which spawned the expression) was October 30, 1974. No way he would've used this expression at the time of the wedding. See more »
Compared to The 60's (1999), The 70's was a piece of television genius. Although there were some historical innacuracies, I was impressed overall at the way that the film makers were able to portray the heartache and disbelif felt within the USA and around the world during the decade that shaped the way the world looked at itself.
I am, however, concerned about the fact that the next mini-series to be produced, in order, will be The 80's :)
