** Common opinion seems to be that if FoL was done in modern times, Jo & Blair would be together and no one would bat an eye.

** Nancy McKeon played the title character's single mom in ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' many years later.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Modern audiences will find it highly unsettling to hear the subject of suicide in "Breaking Point" (like when Jo was talking about a friend of hers who jumped to her death and described the girlfriend as ending up "splattered on the sidewalk") being met with ''laughter''.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode, "Breaking Point", about the suicide of a schoolmate of theirs named Cynthia who had ran against Blair for student council president (and ''won''). Each of the girls' reactions were really sad (especially Tootie's, who at this point was only 11, who found the girl before she ultimately died and went through periods of shock and anger over why she did it.)

* MrFanservice: A LOT of boys passed through over the years. Some [[{{Hunk}} burly athletes]], some [[{{PrettyBoy}} preppy blonde rich guys, ]] and some [[{{NerdsAreSexy}} nerds]], but most notably [[{{HotMenAtWork}} George Clooney]].



* SoundtrackDissonance: Just end the episode with a breakup, a death, or one of the main cast in tears? [[{{MoodWhiplash}} Here comes that perky theme song again]]!
