YMMV / Bunheads

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: A mother bonds with her reluctant daughter-in-law over the death of her son. This sounded like a great premise for a family drama movie with lots of Heartwarming and Tear Jerking, not a comedy series.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The end of "Movie Truck" which, apropos of nothing has Sasha dancing with two dancers. older than her, who have never appeared previously on the show to "Istanbul not Constantinople" by They Might Be Giants, although it might be a Dream Sequence.
    • Word of God has this as a last minute addition when they discovered the script they shot was a few minutes short.
    • Happens again in "I'll be your Meyer Lansky" though there's a bit more context and symbolism involved this time so it may not be as unintentional as the previous instance.
    • Again in "Next" so it may becoming a case of just going with something that works.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Pretty much anything involving the Ringer.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Sasha
  • Les Yay: Ginny with Melanie and Sasha with Boo.
    • In "Blank Up, It's Time," Sasha describes her and Boo's introduction as a meet-cute.
    • “Boo likes Charlie, Charlie likes Ginny, Melanie says Ginny can’t date Charlie because Boo liked him first, but Ginny thinks since Boo likes Carl, she relinquishes Charlie, who should revert back to the open market, AND ME, I WISH WE WERE ALL LESBIANS.”
    • The amount of Les Yay between Sasha and Michelle in 1x12 is ridiculous, with Sasha constantly ditching her boyfriend to hang out with Michelle and joking about their getting married.
    • "I've been thinking a lot about this, and I think we should have sex - now." "With each other?" Note, Boo doesn't seem particularly opposed to the idea, her reaction is a mixture of confusion and curiousity.
    • There's also a bit between Melanie and Cozette, what with Cozette introducing Melanie to roller derby, a sport mostly dominated by lesbians, and Melanie going to great lengths to keep it a secret with Ginny acting very jealous when she finds out.
  • Music Of Awesome: Usually accompanied by Dance of Awesome
  • The Woobie: Boo.
