* TooGoodToLast: It's one of the funniest animated sitcoms ever made... and it only got 23 episodes. If only the president of Fox at the time didn't hate the show, we could've gotten more.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "Marty's First Date", Marty falls for classmate Carmen, who's later revealed to be Fidel Castro's granddaughter. [[BittersweetEnding The two unfortunately part ways due to the American embargo against Cuba]]. In December 2014, Fidel's brother Raul, now leader of Cuba, and President Obama announced that they'd be normalizing relationships, effectively ending the embargo, meaning Marty and Carmen could be together again.

(Of course, they could've been together anyway had she continued attending his school.)

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "Marty's First Date", Marty falls UnintentionallySympathetic: The writers never intended for classmate Carmen, who's later revealed to be Fidel Castro's granddaughter. [[BittersweetEnding The two unfortunately part ways due to the American embargo against Cuba]]. In December 2014, Fidel's brother Raul, now leader of Cuba, audience to not sympathize with Jay in Season 1, but they underestimated the reaction to his repeated misfortunes and President Obama announced that they'd be normalizing relationships, effectively ending the embargo, meaning Marty and Carmen his overall lot in life (where you could be together again.only say Marty, Margo, and Jeremy consistently liked him). Needless to say, Season 2 went about correcting this and [[ThrowTheDogABone throwing Jay some serious bones]].

* TheyJustDidntCare: The only possible reason why they make bad movies. Lampshaded in "L.A. Jay," where the studio head Jay meets makes a point of shelving quality scripts and lets them film the bad ones. Though he considers ''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds IV'' too good ''not'' to be made.

When he explicitly says that Hollywood will stop making bad movies when people stop going to see them, an executive watching in his office says "The jig is up" and jumps out the window.

** ABC objected to "Miserable" on the grounds of sexual content. As pointed out in the commentaries, this from the same network that later aired ''Series/TheBachelor'' — as well as later airing [[http://w2.parentstv.org/blog/index.php/2013/10/23/broadcast-tvs-new-norms/ sexual]] [[http://w2.parentstv.org/Main/News/Detail.aspx?docID=3186 content]] [[http://rebecaseitz.wordpress.com/2013/08/08/morning-sex/ in]] in both ''Series/{{Scandal}}'' and ''Series/{{Betrayal}}''.

** At one point Jay reviews a "politically correct" Franchise/JamesBond film, the joke being that such a film where Bond doesn't smoke, and is expected to act respectfully towards women would be uninteresting...´then we get Creator/DanielCraig, who doesn't smoke, has never once forced himself on a woman, and is generally regarded as one of the best Bonds to date. This could, arguably, be an example of ValuesDissonance, as the definition of positive masculinity has changed quite a bit over the last two decades.

* AmericansHateTingle: A rare example of this happening ''within'' the work's country of origin. The show was supposed to be a love-letter to New York City... where it got the lowest ratings.
