* ViewersInMourning: Referenced in TRMGO DVD review, as Critic mentions the DR fans crying at their relatable characters getting {{retcon}}ned out, but complains that there's not enough of them.

*** [[spoiler: He practically went to [[Literature/LesMiserables Fantine]] levels in "The Review Must Go On", as all the friends he needs so much disappear, he's completely willing to get himself committed, and then he has to learn that he and his backstory is just a punishment for Critic always mocking child stars. It's shoot-yourself-in-the-head worthy.]]

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Tacoma's InMediaRes apology to Donnie at the start of "The Blair Witch Hangover". We think he's apologizing for the argument in the last episode, which is sweet enough, but becomes all the more powerful when everyone finds out just ''[[MissingMom what]]'' Donnie's damage is.

Added DiffLines:

** Even the characters hate it, Donnie calling out the Creator because he's tried so hard under all the misery and this 'twist' means he has nothing to show for it, and Critic (in his review of TRMGO) comparing it to Doug's hated finale of ''Lost''.

* GeniusBonus: Uncle Yo asks Donnie if he's Sisyphus, pushing the rock up the hill again and again. That was Sisyphus's punishment for lying, which Donnie has quite the familiarity with, only he's punishing himself through self-loathing.

** Donnie's name is another mythology reference clue to his story. Donn, the father of the Irish race, angered a ''mother'' and was drowned (abused so much he changed his name). He then became the king of the underworld (made a production) and created an assembly place (owned a studio) for other destroyed people (Rebecca/Karl/Quinn/Tacoma).

* FandomBerserkButton: Acting like the show is just disconnected parodies of movies, when there were actually characters with {{story arc}}s spread over the series, plus the spoofing was given much less focus after the pilot, is a surefire way to piss the fans of it off.

** Acting like the show doesn't even exist, and that Rachel and Malcolm popped out of nowhere to appear on Critic, is really pouring salt on the wound.

Added DiffLines:

** Mostly because of anger at the FanDislikedExplanation, but there's fic and art of Critic/Donnie (being completely separate people) either hatesexing or cuddling.

* VocalMinority: Even thought this show had very little positive feedback, the [[CreatorWorship small percentage]] who did enjoy it did their absolute best to make their voices heard. It still didn't prove enough to make it last very long.

* VocalMinority: Never mind the people who really liked it, even the people who had criticism for certain things (like Collins having confusing motivation, the RealitySubtext being overwhelming, being lazy with Quinn etc.) were angry at the much louder comments demanding Critic's return, bemoaning Doug "betraying his gender by writing sensitive crap", sending death threats to “feminazi” Rebecca, calling Donnie a “pathetic fag” for having issues in the woods, or wanting Tacoma to just “shut up and eat watermelon”.
