** A season 5 episode features a cop who jokes about having shot a black kid whom he thought was carrying a gun, which was actually an iPod Touch. After the shooting death of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Tamir_Rice Tamir Rice]]...not so funny anymore.

After the shooting death of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Tamir_Rice Tamir Rice]]...Rice]] (and other high profile cases of PoliceBrutality targeting unarmed black men)... not so funny anymore.



* ManChild : To varying degrees, most of the men in the show--despite tremendous career success--are drunk and irresponsible without much care or consequence.



* TearJerker : Could also double as CrowningMomentofHeartwarming. In the season 2 finale, the opening scene as Hank finishes typing his manuscript with Warren Zevon on the stereo [[spoiler: Ashby appears, converses briefly, then says "It's true what they say. Got a hell of a band." Then he disappears and we find out he did OD.]]

* TheWoobie: Oh Becca, why can't you find a NiceGuy to have a sweet, non-overly sexual, first/second relationship with?

** Charlie can sometimes be this when he's not being a plain ButtMonkey (although he does have a tendency to bring his misfortunes on himself).

* TheScrappy: Season 4 has seen a marked downturn in the ability of the audience to tolerate Becca's whining, monotone and flat character and an annoying sub-plot involving a bunch of just as annoying try-hard 'bad chicks' and their garage band. Check out the IMDB forum for one place where this crops up as a BaseBreaker topic.

* EscapistCharacter: Hank. Seriously, a woman-hunting, hard-drinking, successful writer who somehow always comes out on top? This is a male writer's fantasy life.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The third episode features a porn star who asks Hank if she should get breast implants, even though he points out that her breasts are fantastic. The character was played by actual porn star Brooke Banner, who though famous for her natural breasts, went on to get implants a few years later.

* DudeNotFunny: Sometimes a scene fails to [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line the second time]]
** [[spoiler: Charlie trying to rape his ex-wife]] is one of the more hilarious examples.
