** His video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndFysO2JunE From Caligari to Hitler]], released within a month of the 2016 US election result, discusses how popular Weimar-era cinema may have accidentally laid the groundwork for the fascists, and ends in a venomously ironic monologue about how us modern audiences will never let it happen again...played out over clips of popular Western blockbusters and shows. The final shot is of [[Film/Ghostbusters Gozer choosing an avatar]] and Venkmann angrily demanding who imagined something, used to surprisingly chilling effect.

** The way he called [[AustinPowers Goldmember]] out in Dutch is offensive enough translated literally, but he also calls him a cancer victim. "Kanker" (the Dutch word for "cancer") is the worst expletive in the language, worse than the English "fuck."

** His decision to review ''Film/TheManWhoFellToEarth'' as a MusicalEpisode is funny in light of the play ''Lazarus'', a sequel to the movie that's an actual Music/DavidBowie JukeboxMusical.

** Among other topics in the "Kill The Mouse" song number in the ''Beauty and the Beast'' review, he criticizes Disney for getting its hands on everything, including "even Maker Studios and Blip". Later on, he adds a plea to "let producers back on Blip". Just under a year later, Disney and Maker closed the doors on Blip forever, leaving many TGWTG and former TGWTG producers (including both Kyle and Tony) searching for a viable alternative until the promised replacement site opens.

** His review of ''The Devils'' has him test if Oliver Reed is really so enticing to women by testing it on WebVideo/JesuOtaku. In 2015, JO came out as a transgender man.

*** He also tried the same thing on {{Psycho|Lesbian}} ButchLesbian WebVideo/DiamandaHagan and got the ''same'' reaction, so it might be a case of [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even The Guys Want Oliver Reed]].

** That might simply add to his point. Just as mainstream America fancies itself as being "postracial" or that we "no longer see color," India's caste-based hatred is only superficially buried.

** While the previous reviews did plenty of analysis, they still owed much to the TGWTG style of recapping a movie's plot while riffing jokes along the way. ''Melancholia'' marked a shift in that the analysis of the film's themes began to take priority over the recapping, which subsequent episodes have been following since. Consequently there have been less BHH episodes, only 7 in 2013, but they tend to be longer and have ''a lot'' of research put into them, while still plenty funny.

***Also, when they were talking about the upcoming Live-Action versions of Beauty and The Beast, they mentioned the project with Emma Watson and Guillermo del Toro was supposed to direct, then said that Disney was "doing some bullshit." Turns out, the version with Emma Watson was Disney's.
