-> ''"Welcome to TV Trash."''

TV Trash is an internet review show that started in 2010. Hosted by Chris Moore (a.k.a. The Rowdy Reviewer), the show takes a stab at some of the worst TV shows imaginable (e.g. ''HeilHoneyImHome'', ''[[Series/{{Galactica 1980}} Battlestar Galactica 1980]]'', the ''WesternAnimation/BattleToads'' short-lived TV series). The show also takes on the worst episodes of his favorite TV series. (Such as [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries "Spock's]] [[Recap/StarTrekS3E1SpocksBrain Brain"]] and the entire [[SeasonalRot sixth season]] of Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer)

The show began on YouTube in February 2010, with ''Stripperella'' being the first show he reviewed, followed by ''Veronica Mars'', ''My Mother the Car'', and ''Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation''. For the first year of the show's existence, it was stuck in obscurity, with Rowdy bravely continuing on with the project despite few viewers. In the middle of 2011, he saw an increase in popularity. Perhaps most notable is how, until October 2012, he did not rely off of giant review sites like Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses or Website/{{Reviewtopia}} to help boost his fanbase. He did it all himself, using his own self-funded website. On October 24th, 2012, he announced that he would join Reviewers Unknown. His 4th episode was the first to be posted on Blip.tv, and all episodes were posted on there until the Summer of 2014, when he became the victim of a purge at Blip that claimed several other reviewers, that led to him deleting his videos from Blip in protest and re-uploading them on Dailymotion.

Rowdy also has an ongoing Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda review project attempting to review all of the Zelda games in the series. It's all to celebrate the series' quarter century anniversary. In 2013, he started another retrospective series on the Ninja Turtles animated series. In addition, he hosts two other shows: "The Wrestling Mark," a kayfabe wrestling news show, and "The PO'd Pizza Guy", which revolves around an angry delivery guy giving advice to his customers... in a not so nice way.

In addition to reviewing bad shows, he has two segments called TV Treasures, where he reviews forgotten gems such as Series/JackOfAllTrades, Series/PoliceSquad, and WesternAnimation/LaffALympics; and TV Timeline, where he takes a look at the television adaptations of various franchises.

He also appeared in WebVideo/TheCartoonHero's review of the ''CtrlAltDel'' AnimatedAdaptation.

----
!!TV Trash contains examples of the following tropes:

* AccentuateTheNegative: On par with many other online reviewers. Though he will admit if something isn't bad and will also review good stuff.
* AlterEgoActing: This is averted for the most part with his character for TV Trash, who seems to share a similar persona with Chris himself, albeit angrier.
* AmazonChaser: He is head over heels for strong female characters, especially [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: During the WesternAnimation/SouthPark review, after declaring "Stanley's Cup" as the worst episode for its third act, he says that the Red Wings wouldn't play such a goon squad game against 4-year-olds because hockey players are nice guys...
--> "And just because I feel like driving another point home, no Red Wings player would wear #9 because they retired it for Gordie Howe!"
** His biggest problem with Creator/SethMacFarlane is not that is preachy or says WaltDisney was an Anti-Semite, but because he's not funny.
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: After a character in ''Film/HomeAlone 5'' says "Will you look at that snow? Never got that in California", he cues up a picture of a snowy scene in Fresno and says, "That's Hollywood for you, thinking that California doesn't go any farther north than Bakersfield."
* AuthorAppeal: He appears to be a big fan of ''{{Peanuts}}'', even though he hates Lucy and finds many of the animated specials bad.
* {{Badass}}: He announced he's reviewing WesternAnimation/SouthPark, a show with a huge fanbase, cementing his status as this.
** And this was ''after'' ripping apart the very popular series ''TheBoondocks''!
* BatterUp: He has frequently threatened the creators of works he dislikes with baseball bats.
* BigWhat: He has this reaction to the end of the QuantumLeap finale.
* BlackHoleSue:[[invoked]] This is the biggest reason why he hates [[Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation Venus de Milo]]. The series seems to revolve around her at the expense of the original turtles.
* BrainBleach: In his ''{{Stripperella}}'' review: "This is why I do reviews on an empty stomach."
** In his review of ''Cavemen'', after he saw one of the main characters about to have sex with his cavewoman girlfriend:
---> "You know, I've always had a thing for strong-willed women. THANKS FOR RUINING THE FANTASY!"
* BerserkButton: He nearly goes insane at the infamous Jew-killing scene from the Disney universe in "Road to The Multiverse".
** And after a KKK joke in the last ''Baby Blues'' episode, he finally blows up and orders the feed cut. He is then seen with a baseball bat and all messed up.
** Whenever Creator/EdAsner is in something he is too good of an actor to be in.
** After ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' makes a racist joke that causes him to defend several other shows that he found unenjoyable in older reviews, he decides to end the review right there.
** He ''really'' hates propaganda, as seen in his review of ''Film/{{JFK}}'' and his decision to name Porter Stansberry's "New America" ads as the worst television commercial ever.
* BrickJoke: His review of ''Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown'' references the "Liquid IQ" gag that started off the previous week's review of ''Shasta [=McNasty=]''.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Welcome to TV Trash!"
* CallBack: In his review of Brickleberry:
--> '''Woody''': If we don't get this park in shape, they're gonna shut down Brickleberry.
--> '''Chris (imitating Woody)''': [[WesternAnimation/YoYogi And there's a real estate agent that looks like a dog already looking to build a mall here!]]
* CausticCritic: On one hand, he does review good stuff, and actually gives it legitimate praise. But, when the material he riffs on is bad, he cranks up the anger.
* ChekhovsGun: His remote that allows him to hack into other's reviewers' feeds. It's first mentioned in TheMightyDucks review, then used in his review of CtrlAltDel with WebVideo/TheCartoonHero. It turns out that frequency [[spoiler: was what allowed Malicia to find him]]
* ClusterBleepBomb: At the end of his review of ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks''.
* CoughSnarkCough: In ''You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown'':
-->'''Peppermint Patty''': You should've seen it. Freddie Fabulous from Fremont and the Masked Marvel got all tangled in the last ten yards. Wow, what a mess!
-->'''Rowdy''': Yeah, I think we would've liked to have seen that too. (''coughs out "ShowDontTell"'')
* CriticalResearchFailure:[[invoked]] He points out an example in ''Shasta [=McNasty=]'' in that the characters are stealing a satellite signal to watch a Notre Dame football game, even though Notre Dame games air on Creator/{{NBC}} for free.
* {{Crossover}}: Rowdy did a crossover with WebVideo/TheCartoonHero with the review of the cartoon adaptation of ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel''.
** He also did one with [[WebVideo/HewysAnimatedMovieReviews Hewy Toonmore]] for ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
** He even has a meta-crossover with The PO'd Pizza Guy appearing at the beginning of his {{Fangface}} review.
** He managed two in one week by teaming with [[WebVideo/ThePunchline The Comic Strip Critic]] to review ''WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow'' and WebVideo/TheHardcoreKid to review the American ''Series/RedDwarf'' pilot.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Due to in-story reasons, The Wrestling Mark and Slacker Sis do one episode each.
* DeclarativeFinger: Used so often that it's essentially a CharacterTic.
* DistractedByTheSexy: In the ''Tabitha'' review, when he mentions that Lisa Hartman tends to get a lot of {{Fanservice}}:
-->"Yeah, I'm just gonna skip over to the next clip and stop ogling her now." (''beat'') "I'm still ogling, aren't I?"
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Averted: He is opposed to this logic, as seen in his review of [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy "If It Smells Like An Ed"]]
--> "And the episode ends with [[spoiler: the Eds likely getting carried off to get raped.]] [[SarcasmMode HILARIOUS!]]"
* DudeNotFunny:[[invoked]] In-universe, he notes several offensive jokes, including a rape joke in ''MenBehavingBadly'', several jokes in the ''Family Guy'' episodes he reviewed, and several more in ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory''.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Count Siggeyai, the villain from ''TheGroovenians'' episode, who sent Chris the aforementioned show, won't send him WesternAnimation/{{Brickleberry}}, citing it as a level of evil even he is not capable of.
** Though [[spoiler: Professor Stupidiot]] doesn't have such standards and ends up sending it.
* FMinusMinus: When reviewing the ''FamilyGuy'' episode "Family Gay", he gives Creator/SethMacFarlane an F-quintuple-minus on the topic of delivering an acceptable GayAesop.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Done occasionally, but most notably during his streak of reviewing shows with a large Fanbase:
--> "And next week, we're gonna [[TotallySpies Totally WOOHP! It! Up!]]"
--> "Tune in Next time when we [[ComicStrip/TheBoondocks get mad, won't take it any more, and stick it to those who wanna stick it to the man!]]"
--> "There's still the big one, that I've waited oh so long to go after. Oh yes. Next week, [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark it's time!]]"
** He starts the WesternAnimation/SouthPark review by singing the theme song to his 100th review [[spoiler: AllyMcbeal]] as he prepares to review the cartoon.
** He references ''Series/TheJersey'' in his ''Series/AdventuresInWonderland'' review.
** The DVD he stares at after he's done reviewing ''Glee'' 's 4th season was that of ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy 's Adult Party Cartoon'', which was the 4th anniversary milestone.
* FurryFandom: When reviewing ''{{Animalympics}}'', he finds himself deeply tempted: "Must... resist... furry jokes!" Ultimately, only his strong standards prevent the review from lasting several hours of same.
* GetARoom: At one point in the ''Animalympics'' review, he makes this suggestion to Kit and René.
* GirlsHaveCooties: Whenever a young boy doesn't employ this trope, Chris cries foul.
* GuiltyPleasures: In his opinion, ''It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown'', just because of how catchy the tunes are, and how much fun everyone seems to have.
** He also cites that, for how much ''AllyMcBeal'' has aged, the show is still very enjoyable.
** Surprisingly, even ''Series/HannahMontana''. He admits that it can be stupid at times, and he spends nearly half the episode pointing out FridgeLogic[[invoked]] with Hannah's SecretIdentity, but he still thinks that it's harmless fun.
** ''{{VIP}}'', which he calls out as stupid and cheap, but still enjoys just the same.
* HeroicBSOD: From "HeilHoneyImHome" to his review of ''TMZ'', he went into a deep depression due to the badness of the former.
** A literal one briefly (in between commercial breaks) occurs during the ''WesternAnimation/JamesBondJr'' review when the cartoon's version of Dr. No is shown to have green skin.
* HeroesWantRedheads: He apparently likes redheads a lot, so he is taken aback when both ''Series/MenBehavingBadly'' and ''WesternAnimation/GrandmaGotRunOverByAReindeer'' have unlikable female redheads.
* HesBack: His reviews of ''TMZ'' and ''Small Wonders'' were first episodes back after total reviewer breakdowns.
* HypocriticalHumor: During his review of YoYogi, he notes an episode a character that has to wear his hat all the time is lame.
* IdiotHero: He considers [[IDreamOfJeannie Major Nelson]] this for not realizing Jeannie was in love with him.
* IdiotPlot:[[invoked]] In his opinion, ''WesternAnimation/OliveTheOtherReindeer'' has one.
* InsultToRocks: After the infamous "book-burning scene" from [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven"]], he stated that WesternAnimation/SouthPark's comparison of the ''Family Guy'' writers to manatees is an INSULT TO THE MANATEES.
** In the ''ShastaMcNasty'' review, he says that implying that the show jumped the shark midway through its lone season (when it was renamed just ''Shasta'') is an insult to [[HappyDays Fonzie]] and the shark.
* JerkSue:[[invoked]] Rowdy sees the title character of ''WesternAnimation/GaryTheRat'' as this: "Gary's a jerk, he's better than everyone else, he cheats to get his way, and he always comes out on top with no remorse or retribution. He's the freaking Barry Bonds of cartoons!"
* {{Joisey}}: [[spoiler: Malicia is sent here by Jeannie, who considers it a "Far away, desolate place!"]]
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes:[[invoked]] Rowdy mentions that it's insane how most older E! shows can't be easily found on the internet, but some people have directed him towards links to episodes of the short-lived NBC sitcom ''Emeril''!
** It's also invoked in "Top 10 Worst Commercials", in which the infamous Advertising/HeadOn commercial gives him bad memories of a [=NicoDerm=] radio ad that's hard to find, but simply was just the words "[=NicoDerm=], it's a patch!" repeated over and over again. He says that some [=DJs=] warned people when the ad was going to play, because it was ''that'' bad.
* LosingHorns: He uses the ones from ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' as a reaction to the first joke he comes across in ''WesternAnimation/BabyBlues''.
* MarySue:[[invoked]] In his opinion, the title character of ''WesternAnimation/OliveTheOtherReindeer'', whom he thinks does little to actually drive the plot but is celebrated as a hero. He even compares her to Tim Tebow.
* MoralEventHorizon: In-universe, he considers Brian Griffin to have crossed this in the latter's "No-God rant" at the end of "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven".
** He also considers [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Stanley's Cup"]] to be one for TreyParkerAndMattStone, citing this was the episode in which he realized that the two were depraved beyond belief.
* MsFanservice: [[IDreamOfJeannie Jeannie]], naturally.
* NewYearsResolution: In "Happy New Year, Charlie Brown", Chris pledges to watch less bad TV. This resolution lasts for all of 10 seconds.
* NiceHat: His signature hat he wears in every episode.
* NoEnding: "The Real Reality TV Review" ends with Chris brutally ranting at the viewers for seeing him as TheChewToy and not taking his personal issues seriously, before a SmashCut to static.
* NoIndoorVoice: When he gets frustrated, turn down your computer's volume settings. He's said that a large part of his unusually loud, nasal voice is due to UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome.
* NoJustNoReaction: He does this when summarizing his ''HeilHoneyImHome'' review.
* {{Not}}: In reference to 66 in the 1995 ''Get Smart'' series: "She's just so cute and charming you wanna fit her in your pocket… '''''NOT!!!'''''"
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: In "10 Worst WesternAnimation/SouthPark Episodes", he does this after pointing out that one of the plot points in "A Million Little Fibers" involves OprahWinfrey's vagina trying to take over the show.
** Again in the ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' review, where he points out the romance between the 7-year-old title character and his 70-year-old principal.
* NoodleIncident: Whatever happened when he snuck into the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. All we know is that it cost him his passport, delayed the ''Baby Blues'' review by two days, and there might be embarrassing pictures of him with Hope Solo...
* ObnoxiousSnarker: See NoIndoorVoice, above.
* OhCrap: After [[WebVideo/HewysAnimatedMovieReviews Hewy Toonmore]] learns that Chris is watching TheGroovenians...
-->'''Chris''': You're too late.
--> '''Hewy''': You poor, unfortunate bastard.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's actually in his 30s and older than Creator/DougWalker. It's easier to tell when takes off his hat and visible balding is present.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: He tries to open the ForBetterOrForWorse review with a [[CanadaEh Canadian accent]], but it ends up sounding more German. "Yeah, I'll stop before I piss off my Canadian fanbase!"
* PositiveDiscrimination: In his review of "Top 10 Stupidest Characters of TV", the only female character is Lois Lane from the 50s Superman, who made the list with Clark.
* PrecisionFStrike: Closest thing to swearing that he has EVER done in TV Trash is the occasional use of the word "Asshole". At the end of his [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven"]] review, after tearing into Creator/SethMacFarlane, he says "See you (bleeped) next time on TV trash!"
** He often substitutes the F-bomb for "Frak" ("WHAT THE FRAK IS THIS", "Top Ten Frak-Ups".)
** When the PO'd Pizza Guy shows up, a couple of (bleeped) swears are heard.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: On the aforementioned NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer in ''Allen Gregory'': "WHO! WOULD! THINK! THIS! IS! FUNNY!"
* RageQuit: He usually manages to get through whatever he has to review, no matter how bad it is or angry it makes him, but ''Allen Gregory'' forces him to give up after 4 episodes after it makes him apologize for three previous reviews.
* RealMenWearPink: In his ''Candid With Chris'' video where he lists the five reviews he hopes WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic will do, he's wearing a T-shirt designed after the [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Pink Ranger suit]] with Kimberly's face in the middle.
** He also thinks ''DesperateHousewives'' is one of the greatest shows of our generation.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Rowdy delivers an epic one to "Seth [=MacFarlane=]" at the end of "Family Guy Month".
** He also blasts one to the heads of Saban in his review of NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation.
** His review of "Road to the Multiverse" is one long at Seth. constantly calling him out for his historically inaccurate universes.
** He tears into [[MoralGuardians One Million Moms]] and ABC for their treatment of ''{{GCB}}''.
** "The Real Reality TV Review" is one 25-minute long one to reality TV and why it sucks so much, people doing despicable things simply to get money, etc.
* RunningGag: As far back as his first episode, Rowdy has made fun of Pamela Anderson.
* SarcasmFailure: Most of ''Brickleberry'' defies comment in his mind, so he spends most of the episode just making faces at the "jokes".
-->'''Rowdy''': (''catatonic'') Yeah, get used to this, people. I get a feeling that a lot of these "jokes" are beyond commenting on and I'll just have to respond with facial expressions.
* TheScrappy: InUniverse. In all of his [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Ninja Turtle]]-related videos, he makes it clear how much he does not like [[Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation Venus De Milo]].
** He also shows that he doesn't like the HannaBarbera sidekick characters like Fangpuss, Baboo, and of course Scrappy.
** He also LOATHES [[PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain Elmyra Duff]].
** Of course he finds, ''Allen Gregory'' blows all of these out of the water.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork:[[invoked]] {{Discussed|Trope}} in "10 Most Screwed Over Shows".
* SelfDeprecation: In "Happy New Year Charlie Brown", he remarks that Charlie Brown was his inspiration for dating, and declares that he will "die alone".
** "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic I'm the Rowdy Reviewer]] and I remember it, because I have no life!"
* {{Sequelitis}}:[[invoked]] In his opinion, ''Film/HomeAlone'' was "too standalone" to require ''one'' sequel, much less ''four'' (the latter two being made-for-TV movies with none of the original cast).
* ShoutOut: He dresses [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic in a tie and a coat]] for his review of HomeboysInOuterSpace, and declares that he will remember it because he "has no life".
** He does the ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' review in the style of WebVideo/TheCartoonHero.
* ShownTheirWork: He goes into detail over the histories of TV shows.
* SigningOffCatchPhrase: In his "Candid with Chris" videos: "Stay rowdy, my friends."
* SoapboxSadie: Perkins and Cecil will take anything about cats that's not [[PositiveDiscrimination completely positive]] and complain about it. They even hijacked the show to review ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry,'' which they argued was anti-cat.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: On the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's death, he reviewed the movie ''Film/{{JFK}}'', despite his show's main focus being television.
** But don't worry, it's a two-part special. The second part? A review of the ''Series/QuantumLeap'' episode "Lee Harvey Oswald", one of the most well-known attacks on the film.
* SuckinessIsPainful: He is DISTURBED by the events in TheGroovenians and HeilHoneyImHome. The latter sent him into a depression.
* TakeThat: Primarily toward Football (which he considers too harsh), Veronica Mars (he did a review of it), and NBC (which caused ALF to be ScrewedByTheNetwork out of a conclusion, which angered Chris so much, he refuses to watch NBC.)
** In [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy "Road To The Multiverse"]] (also telling that he is a Mavericks fan, who faced off the Miami Heat)
---> "I should end this review right now, but unlike the Miami Heat, I don't quit in the fourth quarter!"
** "It's just like switching between MSNBC and FoxNews. Eventually you find out they're both full of crap!"
** From the end of his ''Series/ElectraWomanAndDynaGirl'' review:
---> '''Chris''': So where did you send her to?
---> '''Jeannie''': A far off place devoid of life and civilization!
---> '''Chris''': So, New Jersey? (Jeannie nods) Yeah, Oklahoma's not far enough!
** In the BillAndTedsExcellentAdventures review, he states that morons can be entertaining, going on to suggest either DumbAndDumber or "any presidential debate".
** In ''DenverTheLastDinosaur'', regarding a plot where the villains get on a game show, but their attempts to cheat by having answers piped into them via a wizard hat are thwarted, leading to them giving hilariously incorrect answers: "And yet they still came off as smarter than half the contestants I've seen on ''Series/WheelOfFortune''."
* TemptingFate: Oh, yes. He does this quite a lot.
** He once calls his sister and asks her to put "He tempted fate." on his tombstone.
** From the ''Cop Rock'' review:
---> '''Chris''': The only thing that I can think of that could be worse would be a sit-com about Adolf Hitler! Let's hope there's nothing like THAT around!
* TheyJustDidntCare: In-universe, he cites that the creators of the ''BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' TV series did not put any effort into the show.
** He also states that ultimately, compared to Saban's other shows, ''MaskedRider'' was just given a terrible treatment by the production staff.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:[[invoked]] He admits that, while ''WesternAnimation/BabyBlues'' does have its high points — in particular, he finds The Bittermans relatively funny and some of the writing creative — he still considers it an awful adaptation of the source material for how little it has in common as far as characterization, tone, and plot. In his opinion, it would've been quite good had they just replaced the [=MacPhersons=] with another family and called it something else.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: At the beginning of "ScoobyDooMeetsTheBooBrothers":
--> '''Caption:''' Oh yeah. THIS song [[SarcasmMode is a great way to start]].
** And, at the beginning of HeilHoneyImHome, after seeing the opening credits, he simply puts the NES gun to his head.
** In the ''Brickleberry'' review, he begins with his head in his hands, exclaiming that it's the worst animated show ever.
* ToBeContinued: At the end of his 100th episode ([[spoiler: AllyMcBeal]]).
* {{Understatement}}: After chewing out the Saban Executives in his review of NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation, he says "So, yeah. I'm not thrilled".
* UnintentionallySympathetic:[[invoked]] His opinion of [[ComicStrip/{{Cathy}} Irving]], who he mentioned that while being portrayed as someone who's not there for Cathy, he mentions what he has given up to support their relationship.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic:[[invoked]] Contrast to Cathy, who he sees most of her whining about her misfortunes as {{wangst}} in comparision to ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}, who just takes his misfortunes in stride.
* AVerySpecialEpisode: He does a special to talk about Brian's Death and how wrong it is wish death on anyone, even if they are fictional.
* WaxingLyrical: After a character in ''TheGroovenians'' says "Tomorrow is another day", he follows it up with "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bring_On_the_Rain And I'm thirsty anyway, so bring on the rain]]".
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: In-universe reaction to Ren and Stimpy living in a hobo's mouth.
* WhatTheHellHero: Pretty much the entire "VeronicaMars" review has him do this to the main character being made out to be a hero while she willing to things like steal evidence just to make get back at people.
** He also gives one to anyone who wishes death on TheScrappy characters and the creators of FamilyGuy for how poorly they handled Brian's death.
* WhamEpisode: "The REAL Reality TV Review". Reviewing all of those reality shows pushed Rowdy over the edge. [[spoiler: In actuality, he was taken over by [[WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite Murky]], a being unwittingly released by Professor Stupidiot]].
* WhamLine: During his fight with Malicia when [[spoiler: she tries to use Jeannie to kill him]], he responds [[spoiler: "I freed Jeannie years ago"]]. Cue OhCrap look on her face.
* WhatTheHellCastingAgency:[[invoked]] Creator/FrankWelker doing the voice of Garfield in his review of WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow. He points out that Lorenzo Music is a ToughActToFollow[[invoked]], due to being able to have the right mix of lethargy and DeadpanSnarker in his inflections to nail Garfield. As skilled as Frank is, he can't pull it off well, resulting in his performance sounding just plain lethargic.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: A few episodes have him using "cop-out" as a synonym for "rip-off". Acknowledged in his "5 More Frak-Ups" video.

!!The PO'd Pizza Guy gives examples of these tropes:

* AlterEgoActing: Chris is MUCH nicer than the PO'd Pizza Guy.
* ClusterFBomb: In his brief appearance in the ''Fangface'' Review, he drops a few swear words... all bleeped.
* JerkAss: The first episode quickly shows that he REALLY has some issues. It's also telling that Chris Moore almost NEVER uses vulgar humor in TV Trash, yet it is ABUNDANT with the PO'd Pizza Guy.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's far more civil in his appearance in the ''Fangface'' review.
* PrecisionFStrike: He's one of the few characters on the site to openly swear.
