YMMV: Diamanda Hagan

  • Crosses the Line Twice: Her humor tends to be a little to the dark side, but special mention goes to her Strange Fruit Salad in the Charles Lynch Inn from her review of Sunset Heights.
    • Her crossover with Spoony, which she wrote, not only is your average "Hagan-reviews-a-Christian-Movie" hijinx, but also has Spoony not only being misogynistic towards her but also using slurs with gay abandon.
  • Designated Heroes:
    • Points out the protagonists in Bone Kickers are responsible for numerous murders and break many laws while getting away scot free.
    • She also sarcastically says "our hero" during Emmanuelle 4 when Emmanuelle breaks into a man's house and begins to masturbate over his sleeping body.
    Diamanda: At least when Shinji Ikari did it it was funny.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-universe, her and Linkara point out that Zsazsa Zaturrnah, for all of its progressiveness in showing a transgender superhero and how cruelly the world treats her, uses an awful lot of slurs and jokes at the expense of its gay and transgender characters (although that might be partially the fault of the subtitles).
  • Ear Worm: Her first title theme was Lecher Bitch by The Genitorturers.
    • George Harrison's Dream Away which she uses as title theme for her guide to classic Doctor Who.
      • The Sweet's Ballroom Blitz also, as used for the theme to Twatty New Who.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Her comparison of Spoony to the lead of Schizophreniac The Whore Mangler takes on slightly different connotations when you consider the events that cost Spoony his job at Channel Awesome.
  • Genius Bonus: Frequently Lampshaded
    • "Obscure Austrian far right politics; I went there."
  • Ho Yay: Aleister D. Homelessb'sterrd and Basil P. Remmington
    • Teddy, Diamanda's minion in charge of music, seems to have a thing for Oancitizen
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: She says in a review that she watches Game of Thrones and supports Stannis. Considering he had his daughter burned alive as a sacrifice, this ends up making it hilarious considering Hagan's sociopathic nature.
  • Jerkass Woobie: "I'm Diamanda Hagan ... and I have to live with that every day."
  • Spiritual Successor: For her, Manborg is one for Mortal Kombat. Manborg himself is Kano, Justice is Johnny Cage, Number One Man is Liu Kang, and Mina is Sonya Blade. For her, it also makes a more faithful TRON sequel than TRON Legacy.
  • They Just Didn't Care: One of her complaints about "Sunset Heights" is that the movie get the geography of the West and East sides of Derry/Londonderry/Cooterville wrong, which is something that Northern Irish viewers (the people most likely to see the movie) would notice.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: When reviewing Siege, she complains about how the movie started off with the cinematic gold of would-be fascists holding a gay bar at gunpoint, only for the customers to revolt... only to turn into a stock "home invasion" thriller, with the lone survivor of the gay bar unconscious for a good chunk of the remaining movie.
  • Uncanny Valley: Fenella Pritchard, the villain from the Urban Gothic episode "Pineapple Chunks," in both forms
  • The Woobie: You know how Diamanda is a loud outspoken megalomaniac who routinely abuses her faceless minions in gruesome ways? Well Nina is nothing like that. And it just makes you want to hug her...
    • Linkara feels this way about Ada in Zsazsa Zaturrnah. Her father tries to drown her for being transgender, her niece constantly misgenders her, and her boyfriend breaks up with her because his family doesn't approve of her being gay/transgender/a different religion (and right after she gave him a lot of money to help support his schooling, too).
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: A lot of people who first see her, and a lot of commenters on TGWTG - the majority of whom are horribly insulting about it - can't immediately tell if Diamanda is a man or a Butch Lesbian. For the record, she's the latter. This was lampshaded in her review of Project Million, which she starred in.
    Diamanda: Honestly, I can't tell if that's supposed to be a man or a woman. I mean, they're tall and have a hunchback, but they have tits. Well, their tits look like a herd of gerbils clustering together for warmth.
    Diamanda: (After being asked if she's a woman, in plaintive, exaggeratedly feminine tones) "Why does everyone keep asking me that?" (Abruptly yells in a harsh, male-sounding voice) "OF COURSE I AM!!!"
