These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Dad's Army
Accidental Innuendo: Something Lance Corporal Jones was prone to. For example, describing an mutinous American sailor being whipped -
"And that was the noise that he ejaculated while he was being flogged, sir."
Ear Worm: Who hasn't quietly hummed the end theme while advancing with fixed bayonet during an army exercise?
Ho Yay: Between Mainwaring and Wilson - episodes occasionally forced them to share a bed. This was always Played for Laughs.
Combined with Big Lipped Alligator Moment in one episode with Frazer and Mainwaring, when Frazer tells a dramatic bedtime story as the platoon sleep in a shed ("The Story of the Auld Empty Barn"note There was nothing in it.). As he dramatically builds up to the end, he seems, for no apparent reason, to be stroking Mainwaring's left nipple.
Jerkass Woobie: Mainwaring is extremely pompous but it is impossible not to feel sympathy for him at times.
Godfrey being turned on for being a conscientious objector in the First World War.
Mainwaring talking to Mrs Gray and begging her not to leave.
Values Dissonance: When reciting 'Eenie meenie miney mo', Pike renders the second line as "Catch a nigger by the toe" which would have been the way the rhyme went both in the 1940s where the show was set and the 1960s when it was written.
The episode "Absent Friends", which involves the platoon trying to capture a suspected IRA member, is sometimes omitted from broadcast because of the stereotypical portrayal of the Irish. Before that, it would be left out of broadcast schedules because of The Troubles.
The Woobie: Private Godfrey, expecially in the case of "Branded".
