* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: While well-recieved in its native countries, it also got hugely pooular in places like UsefulNotes/Pakistan and UsefulNotes/Sweden, where it arguably [[TropeCodifier codified]] the PortalToThePast trope for a generation.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesResonance: The premise of the show is about people from different cultures meeting up, becoming friends, and working together to solve their problems. This is never treated as anything extraordinary or [[{{Anvilicious}} anviliciously]] spelled out for the audience either. It just happens naturally by way of common decency. In today's world where "us versus them" mentalities are constantly growing, such a message - told so casually - really comes of as refreshing.

Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: The "came and went" type. It had a self-contained story, and wasn't really meant to run for more than a season. It won several awards and was generally liked by those who saw it, who tend to remember it fondly, but it didn't quite make enough of a cultural impact to be considered a mainstream classic.

* GirlShowGhetto: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]] While the show had two female protagonists, quite a few guys have proudly called themselves fans of it. It might help that it was an adventure series and that the male characters where also portrayed as fairly likeable.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: The tutor, Bellamy Frid, is possibly the most hated character in the show due to being an unlikable snob who is mean to the Iredale children on top of ''also'' conspiring with the BigBad.

* ContestedSequel: ''Mirror Mirror II.'' Some feel that this SequelSeries [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks was simply too different from the original,]] featuring a completely different cast of characters and no recurring elements aside from the basic premise of two families from different time periods being brought together by the Mirror, [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands which now has a new set of powers it never had before.]] It was also more episodic than the steamlined StoryArc in the original series, and while ''Mirror Mirror'' won three awards - four if you count one for the novelisation - ''Mirror Mirror II'' was only nominated for one which it didn't win. Still, some feel that it was a decent show in it's own right.
* EvilIsSexy: For some, Sir Ivor. He ''is'' played bt Nicholas Hammond, after all.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartwarmingMoments: Louisa comforting Jo during their first proper meeting, especially if you look at it from the former's perspective. She has just gone through a MagicMirror, entered a wierd, alternate version of her room, and found a person dressed in strange clothes... and she ''doesn't'' freak out about it, bacause all she sees is a crying girl who really needs a hug.
** Jo's dad telling her that, while he disagrees about everything she's done and forbids her to continue, [[SoProudOfYou he's still proud of her for doing what she considered to be the right thing.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMolester: The Old Man, to a certain extent, due to his tendency to approach young teenage girls while their parents are not nearby, giving them tasks they ''have'' to perform. [[spoiler: His true goal turns out to be rather different, though YMMV whether it's any more moral.]]

* AwesomeMusic: The intro is absolutely stunning.

* AwesomeMusic: The intro is absolutely stunning. It helps that it also has tons of SceneryPorn.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: Nicholas. He has suffered from hemophilia his whole life, seen his homeland fall into chaos after a violent revolution, been forced to flee from people who wanted him dead, basically been kidnapped and held prisoner by a man who wanted to sell him to the highest bidder, [[spoiler: has the only proof of his identity stolen from him ''and'' is then informed that his entire family has been assasinated.]] Poor kid deserves a break.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Jo's father makes it clear that he doesn't approve of her time travelling at all, feeling that it's dangerous... and it is. Aside from the risk of altering the timeline, Jo and her friends are up against violent smugglers who have no qualms about kidnapping teens such as themselves and selling them to the highest bidder. Of course, Jo ''knows'' this. She just feels that she ''has'' to help her friends, no matter what.
** While she's needlessy smug about it, Leonie Coigley ''is'' right about Catherine's archeology club being responsible for putting two students in the hospital, an accident which could have been avoided with better security precautions and/or more adult supervision.
* JerkassWoobie: Jane Coigley. Yes she is a jerk, but with a mother like Leoine it's hard to blame her for turning out like that. [[spoiler: Then there's the fact that her whole life, from her birth to what was basically her death, was a part of the Old Man's scheme.]]
** Jo herself can be rather angsty sometimes. Then again, her situation would ''not'' easy to deal with for anyone.
