Added DiffLines:

* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors: "The Academy" from the titular episode. On the surface, it's a military academy for troubled children. In reality, it's little more than a dumping ground for kids whose parents would rather not have to deal with them, with the strong idea that most students never graduate. The man at the entrance is an old student; he's 55.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePunishmentIsTheCrime: In "The Caterpillar", Mr. Warwick says he's just going to have Macy sent back to England; he doesn't intend to press charges for the murder attempt. It's implied he thinks what Macy will have to deal with as a result of his scheme backfiring is worse than the legal punishment he could potentially expect.

** Jackie Slater in "Make 'em Laugh" is repeatedly described as fat and ugly in the original short story. He's played in the show by the rather handsome Godfrey Caimbridge (also a RaceLift). Possibly also a CastingGag as Cambridge had recently lost a lot of weight.

** In "Make 'Em Laugh", Jackie Slater, a failing stand-up comedian, makes a wish with the help of a klutzy genie to be able to make people laugh. The problem is, he can't turn it off when he wants to make a career as a serious actor.
