* UnderminedByReality: A lot of the HorribleHollywood themes for the series became bitterly ironic in early 2018, when a Google Doc by several former creators airing their grievances about [[WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]] and its upper management came out, such as how badly its female creators were treated, a lack of any real effort put into resolving complaints, and the overreliance on specific talent to the detriment of everyone else, giving the impression that Channel Awesome is a sort of Hollywood in itself.

** There was a Demo Reel reunion (of sorts) in January 2017. It came at the end of the Let's Play Awesome Resident Evil 7 Demo: http://youtu.be/NdsYUpBvKlo?t=28m50s.

** In Midwest Media Expo 2015, Doug called the scene where Donnie is breaking down about his mom in the forest at night the most hardest thing he's ever had to do emotionally (because there was so much to get across and he legit felt like he was dying from cold), which he felt made the sadness come out better.

* GenreKiller: The “I want reviews!” reaction a lot of the forums to it had made Rob admit in a post that Doug would never try to create a serious original work again.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Adam and Jill are sociopaths who kidnap a FormerChildStar and raise their daughter to be as mentally ill as they are. Jason and Jori are perfectly lovely people who [[ThrowTheDogABone threw Doug a bone]] and helped him get out of his head with the at-that-point-suffering ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' vlogs.

** Averted. Tacoma was going to originally wake up in Snow White's dress instead of Belle's, s it was the [[https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=469734449759688&id=127127037353766&comment_id=78023938 "...second funniest dress we could imagine on Malcolm"]]. The most funniest? Snow White, however this idea was scrapped as Creator/AllisonPregler had already worn it in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''.

** Walkers did learn their lesson in one respect though. Both Lindsay and Allison have gone on record to say they hated their characters in their anniversary specials and didn't get listened to when they had complaints (Allison even said they only know the “swoony girly” type or the “tough bitch”). In this show, it was said that both Rachel and Malcolm had a hand in the scripts and could improvise anything emotional, which was why Rachel continually expressed delight with Rebecca's character.

** Retroactively. In this show, Jim Jareoz plays an Irish {{Badass}} HiddenHeartOfGold former member of the IRA. In the Critic reboot, his two main roles are the simpering condescending ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' therapist and the lisping loud flamboyant CreepyCrossdresser head of TMZ.

* TomHanksSyndrome: Critic had emotional stuff, especially towards the end, but the Walkers wanted to write and act in more serious work. Years later, they both named a Demo Reel scene (Doug having a breakdown in the woods, Rob having to say goodbye in TRMGO) as their most emotionally draining acting experience.

* LyingCreator: Doug explained the Transformers episode not being shown in order as “it wasn't furthering the plot”. When it came out on DVD, and people found out that it actually foreshadowed a load of sad backstory and had Donnie even talking to his friends setting up SWAG (something that if you only watched the aired episodes, they suddenly always knew they were behind the shit going on), they guessed that the actual reason was that an episode using Michael Bay to talk about privilege probably wouldn't go down well in the comment section.

* CreatorBreakdown: The more the show went into [[FormerChildStar Donnie's backstory]] the more it became apparent that [[WriteWhatYouKnow was writing about his own regret]] for mocking child actors like Jake Lloyd and Mara Wilson.

* CreatorBreakdown: The more the show went into [[FormerChildStar Donnie's backstory]] the more it became apparent that [[WriteWhatYouKnow was writing about his own regret]] for mocking child actors like Jake Lloyd and Mara Wilson. There's also the fact that Donnie sucks (intentionally or not) as a director and Doug's not-so-great directing skills caused a lot of issues on the anniversary movies, ''and'' Donnie having a lot of people creep on him while Doug has expressed discomfort with being a ChickMagnet plenty of times. As Rob said later, he left Doug to write everything regarding Donnie because they were so much alike.
