* DVDCommentary: One of the best ever. Largely consists of ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' style riffing (and cameos from Creator/EmoPhillips, Michael Richards and Victoria Jackson (via phone for the latter). Al demostrates his very impressive memory by rattling off the exact dates and locations of several scenes.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: George and company have to fight off loan sharks, mobsters and [[VillainWithGoodPublicity high competition]] for the sake of their little UHF station. But once he gets Harvey's signature on the station lease, it proves to be worth every moment.

* TheUnseen: The only thing we see of Big Louie is is right hand, which turns out to be a prop hand. He later twists it off and puts a meat cleaver in its place.[[note]]In the commentary, Al mentioned wanting a reveal scene where it turned out Big Louie was really Creator/MervGriffin[[/note]]

* GreaterScopeVillain: Big Louie the loan shark/potential crime boss, who drives the plot by forcing Uncle Harvey to repay a horse-gambling debt. One has to wonder if he was even aware of U-62 outside of him pulling up through the crowd and his limited interaction with George- he never even met Fletcher.
