* DeaderThanDisco: Qualifies as this for great justice. Despite its then-revolutionary safe sex episode, having a character killed off due to AIDS, and boasting a respectable cast, it's better remembered nowadays 1) for the whole Valerie Harper debacle with Miller/Boyett and the way it was handled on the show, 2) as Creator/JasonBateman's StarMakingRole, 3) as an especially {{egregious}} case of KeepCirculatingTheTapes, and 4) for its theme song, especially to DeathMetal fans as Music/CannibalCorpse of all people has done the song live.
* EarWorm: The theme song "Together Through the Years".
* HarsherInHindsight: In TheNewTens Valerie Harper announced that she was diagnosed with brain cancer, thus rendering the entire death subplot as this.
* HeReallyCanAct: Creator/JasonBateman at times.
* {{Moe}}: Mrs. Poole.
* WTHCastingAgency: [[Series/{{Today}} Willard Scott]] is a decent actor ([[{{Adorkable}} and he's pretty goddamn lovable]]), but ''how'' exactly did he get a role on this show? (Granted, it was on an infrequent basis for about two seasons, but it's still pretty weird.) Of course he ''did'' have connections with NBC being a popular weatherman there.
