Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
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: Defying Gravity
Alternative Character Interpretation: The series seems to expect us to root for Zoe/Donner. But witness just how often she tells him to back off and he continues to push into her space and intervene in her life as if he has a right to. While sleeping with someone else, even!
Crosses the Line Twice: Zoe's Halloween costume, after her hysterectomy, is what she would "never become": a pregnant astronaut
Fridge Brilliance: Why do we have FTL communication in an otherwise fairly hard Sci-Fi show? The Alpha and Beta objects when they're first detected communicate using some sort of FTL radio, their communication is picked up by radio telescope scientist types, and there's clearly no communication lag. From studying the communication and the Beta object FTL telecomms is born.
