YMMV / Brimstone

YMMV for the TV Series

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Was Gilbert Jax actually part of the break-out? He was too new to Hell to have any powers, too unstable to control, and had no useful skills of any kind. Sending him back would have been child's play if not for the Devil's interference. It's not hard to argue that the Devil let him go just to mess with Zeke.
  • Genius Bonus: In It's a Helluva Life the Devil accusing Zeke of imagining a "Saintly" life that could get him into heaven, and Zeke insists "I never said saintly." The joke here seems to be that Zeke (like most people) doesn't actually realize that anyone who goes to heaven is a "Saint." When a denomination declares someone a "Saint" it merely means that they believe there is proof that person is in heaven.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: You get exactly one guess whom he (go down) plays on that series.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: As recently as 2008, a representative of Warner Home Video commented on the series.
    "Despite the wonderful work of Peter Horton and John Glover, there are no plans at this time to release Brimstone."
  • Retroactive Recognition: In the episode 'Ashes', there's an appearance from Supernatural's Mark Pellegrino.

YMMV for the Novel

  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: The Harriman-Reverend Buck-Laura Hayward subplot ultimately has nothing to do with the main plot, beyond being started by it.

YMMV for the Movie
