YMMV: Apocalypse Lane
  • Crazy Awesome: Pastor Hickey, though you wouldn't believe it at first. When he drinks rum, he becomes a pirate, and when he drinks a vodka martini (shaken, not stirred) he becomes Sean Connery-era James Bond. And yes, he's actually competent when he descends into those states.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The source of much of the series' humor.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Willy's rant in episode two takes the cake, but there are arguably many more
    • The one that immediately comes to mind is Frank's father being the Geico gecko.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: What Cuddles is willing to do to preserve his friendship with Steve.
  • Nausea Fuel: Considering the setting, it's not surprising that this shows up a bunch.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Once again, post-apocalyptic comedy. Much of what is hilarious is horrifying, possibly at the same time.
  • Tear Jerker: This Troper teared up at the series finale when Steve and Cuddles die in the blast that caused the apocalypse, and as a sad, somber rendition of the original theme plays as the camera slowly pans away from their skeletons.
    • That was also the skeleton that ends up hanging above the fireplace in Steve's house
  • What an Idiot: Humangoid / Big Pete.
    Big Pete: "Hey, um... do you think you could point out your roof to me?"
    *Steve points upwards*
    Big Pete: "Oh, uh, thanks." *leaves*
    Marty: "... God DAMN you don't see that kind of stupid very often."
