** In the opening, [[spoiler:a lone falling star can be seen as the sun rises, which matches the date the Network first appeared (and symbolizes the simultaneous rise and fall of both Gary and humanity).]]

* XMeetsY:
** If the [[Series/DoctorWho Autons]] stole from the ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'' playbook, it would be this movie.
** It's ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'' meets AlienInvasion. Almost everyone in the film is a StepfordSmiler: the town, Gary, Andy, and Pete in particular. (Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.) Heck, Edgar Wright stated the Blanks are based on the movie poster (seen on the film's trope page.)

* AccidentalInnuendo: [[invoked]] Gary loves these. When the Network talks about "penetration points", Gary giggles and makes a "fucking pussy" gesture with his fingers with a whistle.

** When they're getting ready to go in the car, a conversation about [[Creator/AlexanderDumas Alexander's Dumas']] Literature/TheThreeMusketeers briefly occurs. During this Oliver points that The Three Musketeers is a fiction written by Alexander's Dumas, to which Gary replies that a lot of people were saying that about Literature/TheBible (i.e. that the Bible is a fiction). Steven asks if he means that it was written by Alexander Dumas, to which Gary jokes that it was written by Jesus.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The Network has left Earth, but in the process the planet is knocked back to the Dark Ages. Peter and Oliver are both dead and replaced by Blanks, while Gary resorts to WalkingTheEarth and Andy hasn't seen him since. And Gary ''still'' didn't finish the crawl, due to the entire village of Newton Haven being destroyed. However, Andy points out that his previously rocky marriage is back on track, and Steven and Sam are living rather happily in a "shack" just outside London. And Gary appears to have conquered his alcoholism.]]

* XMeetsY: If the [[Series/DoctorWho Cybermen]] stole from the ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'' playbook, it would be this movie.
** Actually, [[TheyLookLikeUsNow infiltration as humans]] is ''occasionally'' already used in-universe as the shtick of the Nestene Consciousness and its Autons rather than the Cybermen.
