YMMV: American Gothic
- Evil Is Sexy - Sheriff Buck for the win. It doesn't take Gail (and many female viewers) long to figure this one out.
- Faux Symbolism
- Hilarious in Hindsight/Retroactive Recognition: Sarah Paulson, who played Merlyn Temple, would go onto star in another horror series fighting against the Devil.
- Magnificent Bastard - Buck could qualify as the patron saint of this trope if he wanted to.
- Nightmare Fuel: This show does have Sam Raimi as producer after all.
- Replacement Scrappy - Billy Peele. He was forced on the show by producers and replaced the immensely likeable Matt. The Writers hated him but got even by making him the butt of a pretty cruel plot twist.
- What an Idiot
- WTH, Casting Agency?: A horror series about the innocence, sin, morality and evil created by one of The Partridge Family? Thankfully it works.
