* CultClassic: Incredibly obscure outside of Québec. The fact that is has a page here on TV Tropes is surprising, to say the least.
** The WikiMagic is strong in these tropers.
* JerkSue: Flavien becomes this in the second movie, being right even though he'd ought to be wrong and doing pretty much anything he pleases. Borders on GodModeSue with all his new powers.
** By series standards, is GodModeSue.
* UnfortunateImplications: Bob, the pilot, is essentially a TooDumbToLive CloudCuckoolander BigEater. He's also the only visible minority on the ship. Though the entire crew is flawed to some degree, and Bob tends to be treated with more sympathy since he's a genuinely good guy.
** Everyone tends to be [[RuleOfFunny as dumb as the joke requires]]. Unfortunately, Bob is probably the most frequent butt of the jokes (except for slapstick, where Brad inevitably gets that honor).
* SpiritualSuccessor: Of ''Series/RedDwarf'', with similar styles of stories, characters and a distinctively low budget visual style reminiscent of the early seasons.
* TheWoobie: Despite all the problems that he has directly caused to the crew by being a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk, the final two episodes show Brad genuinely regretting his actions and making him lovable in his own deeply flawed way.
* {{Woolseyism}}: Applies to the English subtitles for the movies, where many of the jokes are Woolseyisms rather than literal translations, and slang is used quite often.
