YMMV: Broken Saints
Back to the main page.
  • Awesome Music: Some of it original, some of it well-chosen and strategically placed.
  • Epileptic Trees: In the epilogue on Lomalagi, Raimi and Oran are also dead.
  • Get On With It Already
  • Heartwarming Moments:
  • Ho Yay: Raimi and Oran, as lampshaded in commentary tracks by Brooke Burgess himself.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Lear.
  • Moment Of Awesome:
    • Oran's first battle with Charles and Bravado: "I believe!', and the Meaningful Echo of that same line in the Grand Finale.
    • "You are going to get the girl and tell me what I want to know now, or I will fill your computers with gig after inhuman gig of child pornography. I will flood the FBI with perfect shots of you touching little boys of every age and creed—sent from your e-mail address, and I will smile when I think of the prison brothers prying you open and turning your ass into a gaping, bloody parking space. I can do it. In minutes. From anywhere. Believe it."
  • Moral Event Horizon: Gabriel disembowels, gouges the eyes out of, and crucifies Shandala's cat in the Wham Episode.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In spades.
    • Chapter 22, Act 2.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Every allusion the vagrant makes in Chapter 24, Act 1.
  • Tear Jerker: A number of moments, for a number of different reasons.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Palmer is heavily implied to be a homosexual and a pedophile. No other characters are either explicitly or implicitly gay, although there is considerable and intentional Ho Yay between Raimi and Oran.
  • The Woobie: Our four heroes variously, especially Shandala.
