Masterandcommanderposter Master and Commander Peter Weir The Countdown
Ryan and Marissa mention they went to go see "a period piece about boats." Marissa then mentions that she doesn't find Russell Crowe attractive, a joke about how Benjamin McKenzie is described as looking like Russell Crowe. The film is based on the Aubrey–Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian and includes episodes from several novels in the series. The plot of the film, in which Aubrey in HMS Surprise chases an enemy frigate round Cape Horn into the Pacific, is based loosely on The Far Side of the World, but the American frigate USS Norfolk in the book becomes the French privateer Acheron in the film. The episode of deception of the enemy by means of a raft bearing lanterns is taken from Master and Commander, and the episode in which Maturin operates on himself to remove a bullet is taken from HMS Surprise.
Daredevil Daredevil Mark Steven Johnson The Telenovela
Summer alludes to the failed Ben Affleck-Jennifer Lopez relationship on why she doesn't want to reveal that her and Seth are dating. Seth also alludes to it by saying "I could get offered twenty million dollars to portray a blind super hero in a red leather unitard."

Much disapproval was heaped upon Ben Affleck for his performance as Daredevil, whom many fans felt was not right for the role.
