** After Jamal beats the crap out of Warren and he is angrily screaming, which fits and is fine. The problem is that as he is being dragged away by Hakeem and Andre, the way he says "get off me" doesn't fit the tone of the scene.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Nearly every character in the series is a lying, cheating, backstabbing scumbag with the notable exceptions of Jamal ([[spoiler: until the ending of the first season sees him [[TookALevelInJerkass take a huge level in jerkass]]]]), and, surprisingly enough, Cookie (she may be spiteful and quick to anger, but she isn't dishonest). Lucious himself is an abusive, conniving [[spoiler: murderous]] crook. Given all of this, it's all too easy for this trope to set in. However, it is also noteworthy that there are several who are loving the show exclusively because of this. Hakeem does [[CharacterDevelopment take]] [[TookALevelInKindness a level in kindness]] as the first season progresses.
* EarWorm:
** "Adios" by Tiana.
** "Drip Drop" by Hakeem and Tiana.
** Jamal's cover of "You're So Beautiful".
** Jamal and Hakeem's cover of "What the DJ Spins."
** "Boom Boom Boom Boom" by Lucious and Freda ''will'' be stuck in your head.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[Series/{{Dallas}} Ewing family]]:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Frank Gathers, who spent the entire first as both TheDreaded and TheGhost finally shows up in season 2 proving to be a good rival to Lucious, is [[spoiler: killed off in the season premiere.]]



* WTHCastingAgency: Casting ''Creator/ChrisRock'' to play Frank Gathers, a drug lord who had only been spoken of in dreaded tones throughout the first season. When we finally meet him in the second season premiere, seeing Chris Rock in those chains totally killed the immersion. It was perhaps the first time Rock has ever done a 100% dramatic role (and a rather dark one at that), but because he's so distinctive as a comedian, it was impossible to take him seriously. [[spoiler: Thankfully, he doesn't live past the first episode.]]

* IKnewIt: Anyone who was correct about [[spoiler: Anika pushing Rhonda down the stairs]].
** The minute Andre said it was [[spoiler: Harper Scott, who revealed Lucious's mother being alive]], Lucious was on that "Handled" mindset.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Those who have seen ''Film/HustleAndFlow'' can easily consider this to be a television sequel to the film. Helped by Terrance Howard playing a guy trying to make it in the hip-hop world, coming from a DarkAndTroubledPast. The comparisons basically write themselves.
