* BizarroEpisode: "Reyholm vs Reynholm", which (besides the special) was also the final episode of the series. Douglas' wife returns, but her character is bizarre and she does very little besides start the court case. Jen is relegated to Douglas' legal lackey for no good reason, Roy and Moss are DemotedToExtra, Richmond makes a brief appearance as a totally different person and is gone just as fast, and there's only one short scene in the IT office. The episode also ends very abruptly.

* ArtisticLicense: A company the size of Renholm Industries would have a larger IT department. In fact, a company one tenth the size would. In this world, all IT does is fix minor computer issues, but in the real world, they are responsible for monitoring and maintaining network infrastructure, tracking and maintaining inventory, keeping track of what users have what system access and/or company hardware, and a whole host of other things. A real IT department for a company that size would, at minimum, have five employees, not including Jen or Richmond, and two or three of them would likely not go and physically repair computers themselves.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: In the first episode, a woman gives Roy a rather brutal beating using her shoes. Jen defuses the situation (after letting it go on for a while) but no one seems to be seriously concerned by it. Subverted, however, in "50/50," when Jen is humorously concerned that her date, who lost big on ''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'' because of her, will beat her with his shoe.

** Jen summarily dismisses the trauma of Roy and Moss's sexual harassment by way of being trapped in an office with a very horny Douglas, but in the end, the two get a bigger payout for their lawsuit than she did of her's.
*** That said, both examples ''are'' still PlayedForLaughs. Neither would be as funny if Jen were the victim.

* AllPeriodsArePMS: Jen's "[[UnusualEuphemism visit from Aunt Irma]]". To make matters worse, Roy and Moss start exhibiting the same symptoms as though their cycles are synchronizing, even though they're men.

** After a ClusterFStrike which was entirely bleeped out, it is revealed that the bleeping occurred in-universe and when Denholm says: ''As for you Jen, you're fucked up!'' the line is completely clear, the person using the profanity buzzer having just missed the mark.
