To a fairly large extent, ''Series/BlackHoleHigh'' is simply ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' with the word "supernatural" crossed out and "science" penciled in (though with the nonviolent and [[NoHuggingNoKissing nonsexual]] baggage implied by its younger target audience). The second episode, "Invisible", for example, is a near-identical copy of the ''Buffy'' episode "Invisible Girl"; the key difference being that, rather than attributing a character's disappearance to magic, the nearby black hole caused it to be ''[[SarcasmMode entirely scientifically plausible]]'' that Marshall would, as a result of feeling unnoticed, lose his ability to interact with light.

The show uses emotional states as a metaphor for physical states, leading some people to believe that the recurring theme of the show is that, near a black hole, [[YourMindMakesItReal one's emotional state and social interactions can reshape the laws of physics]], essentially, trying to make science interesting to kids by ''flat out contradicting how science actually works''.

* FreudianExcuse: Josie has them. Her mother is away often for work, her work is very secretive (and in the end, it turns out she's working for [[spoiler: Pearadyne Labs]]), and she and her mother have differing personalities. It's stated that Josie's strong will and independence came as a result of not being able to rely on her mother as a child.

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: In "Culture" Josie accidentally creates a clone. This clone acts much different from her and she is annoyed at how her clone behaves. Things get really weird after the clone spends the afternoon with her mother there for a rare visit and [[MommyIssues her mother doesn't notice]].

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: The growing attraction between Marshall and Corrine, and the UST between Josie and Vaughn. Even though neither of these couples really dated formally, everyone assumed they were. This is lampshaded by Marshall's friends in the epsidoe "Friction."

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Josie and Corrine, respectively, along with being polar opposites. It creates a lot of tension between them, since they're also roommates.

* PutOnABus: Marshall transfers schools between the end of the third season and the beginning of the fourth (which takes place a year later). He appears in the finale, but only briefly.

** Tyler, an intellectual bully, goes through the wormhole both into the past and future. He learns more than even the Science Club and eventually leaves to go to a different school, where a bad guy is trying to control the wormhole. His departure was left as a cliff hanger, which was presumably going to come to fruition in the fourth season, but the cancellation of the show negated it.
