Added DiffLines:

* ILoveTheDead: Played for laughs. In the requisite "parents visit their daughter's corpse" melodrama scene, the choir boy in the scene who's singing the somber piece suddenly switches to porno music, [[CrossesTheLineTwice which causes the father to do... things... with his daughter's body]].

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: They like this gag. The first episode alone has the music during a chase scene performed by a local band, and the ethereal music during a scene where two distraught parents are brought in to see their daughter's corpse revealed to be sung by a choir boy.

* DiscriminateAndSwitch: Cloth asks a black kid on a bike where to find Crossbo, and the kid answers in what appears to be heavily accented, broken English: "Dat dere yute club." Then it turns out that the name of the place he directed Cloth to is ''literally'' "Datdere Yute Club". [[note]] "Opened by Baron Peregrine Datdere-Yute, 2002" [[/note]]

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: Averted in-universe. "I took the amusing precaution of dissecting the cat!" Note that it was ''alive'' [[BrickJoke in the first episode]].
** Averted in-universe again in Series 2; a big deal is made of the fact that the bank robbers shot the owl. Why the bank has an owl is {{Hand Wave}}d but it's implied to be for security purposes.

Added DiffLines:

* MisterSandmanSequence: Parodied when a woman who's being interrogated unveils information about the killer's background to the detectives for something that happened in 1996, but the screen actually shows a litany of pop culture, fashion, events, and people iconic to the 1980s much to the confusion of the cops. It turns out she was watching a nostalgia program on the telly during her flashback.

* OnTheNext: Parodied. The "next episode" montages feature completely non-existent plots. For instance, the one for the third series had an AlienInvasion and ghost banshees.
