* RealityEnsues: In "The Right Stuff," two high school girls from Macie and Courtney's French class try embarrassing Courtney by removing her bikini top at a pool party that Macie's throwing (albeit very reluctantly). They succeed, but now everyone hates them for not only ruining the party but also for pulling such a mean prank on a middle school student. Also, Macie and her friends, Ginger and Dodie, manage to save Courtney before anyone can see anything.

** In "Driven to Extremes" after dealing with a sadist substitute teacher, Ginger gets fed up and verbally stands up to her. This just results in Ginger being sent to detention, thus making the episode a DownerEnding. This is due to Ginger's actions to the teacher being viewed as insubordination and disrespect to the authority (whether the student is right or wrong). Also, the substitute teacher [[KarmaHoudini receives no comeuppance for her actions]].

It was among the few animated series in {{Creator/Nickelodeon}} that was ahead of its time, featuring (relatively) realistic situations and teenage issues which soon set a mark for the [[Franchise/{{Degrassi}} future]] [[SouthOfNowhere titles]] to come in the Creator/{{TeenNick}} time slot. The most notable among the show pointed out that it didn't follow the LimitedWardrobe trope compared to the other Nick titles. It is also one of the only shows, not just on Nickelodeon, but perhaps in all of children's entertainment, to portray interracial romance in a serious (and positive) light.

* CoolLoser: Ginger Macie and Darren are all great people, but not as popular or "successful" at Lucky Jr. High. Subverted with Dodie--she desperately wants to be part of the "in crowd", but the popular kids can sense her wannabe attitude a mile away.

* AmbiguousReligions:
** Lois has a Jewish father but she doesn't seem religious herself. The ChristmasEpisode shows that the Foutley's celebrate Christmas, though whether it's secular Christmas or Christian Christmas is unknown. Ginger learned about her Jewish heritage and became interested in it but it's never stated if she converted or not.
** Lois believes Carl is an atheist however lines imply he believes in a god. It's unknown if he is agonistic, atheistic, Jewish, Christian, or whatever other religion.
