* His review of Madonna's ''Swept Away'' remake is a very thoughtful compare and contrast with the original film, showing how despite near-identical plot beats the remake is far worse, and completely lacks the level of irony the original had to make its offensive subject matter worth the effort of defending.
* Him calling out "Girl Crush" by LittleBigTown in his Top Ten Worst Hit Songs of 2015 for pulling BaitAndSwitchLesbians.

* Todd using his "Scars for Your Beautiful" review to sum up his problems with the self-empowerment tracks he's had to cover: oftentimes, they're bland platitudes more beneficial to the singer than to the people they're trying to reach. Topping it off is how guilty he feels, knowing how many people find genuine inspiration in these songs. He thinks they deserve better than what they're getting.

* In his Top 10 Worst Hit Songs of 2011, he makes some '''scathing''' jokes towards Chris Brown.
-->'''Chris Brown:''' I don't see how you can hate from outside of the club. You can't even get in! Haha!
-->'''Todd:''' But I can hate you from outside the police station, '''you piece of shit!'''
** Also:
-->'''Chris Brown:''' I'm getting paper!
-->'''Todd:''' What, arrest papers, you loathsome little toad?

Added DiffLines:

* Despite his extreme distaste for "One Tin Soldier," he admits that he really likes the chorus, a bitterly sarcastic recitation of people using religion to justify hatred, which then turns to the poignant image of a single toy soldier being all that's left of humanity.

-->'''Todd:''' And girls never have their friends stick up for them when they screw around. Guys never get taken for granted. [[SarcasmMode Yeah, that's the way it works, all right.]] [Pause] No, I'm not bitter.
-->'''Beyonce:''' [[Wangst When you lose the one you wanted]]
-->'''Todd:''' I mean, I've had ''my'' heart stomped on before, but I don't go around saying, ''[[HeManWomanHater "all girls are the same, they'll try and take your money, blah blah blah..."]]''. I'm not saying that to be congratulated, I'm just saying ''I'm'' not a 13-year-old who just got dumped for the first time, and neither is Beyonce! ''What possible excuse is there for this?!''

-->'''Todd:''' The real tragedy here is that most of Beyonce's songs annoy me because they don't have a tune, but the tune here is fine; and usually Beyonce's singing makes me feel like I'm being hit with a brick, but her singing here is fine. No, the problem is with the moronically ''[[DoubleStandard sexist]]'' lyrics!
-->'''Todd:''' Yeah, see, Beyonce thinks that [[UnfortunateImplications only guys hurt the ones that love them.]]
-->'''Beyonce:''' And chase after girls
-->'''Todd:''' [[TheUnfairSex Only guys cheat.]]
-->'''Beyonce:''' And I’d never get confronted for it 'Cause they’d stick up for me
