YMMV / Diplomatic Immunity

  • Anti-Climax Boss: See Prince of Pranksters on the main page for the details but Kirsty in episode 2. It turns out she was too busy with preparing the feast to prank them.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The second episode deals with the topic of one of Fe'ausi's islands being wiped away in a natural disaster. In the wake of Japan's March 2011 earthquake, the tsunami danger to a lot of Pacific island nations is all too real.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Leighton having a thing for princesses, considering Craig Parker's character in Spartacus: Blood and Sand is a massive social climber. What's more is that Lesley Ann Brandt, who is his love interest in this, plays a slave there.
  • Ho Yay: the Niu admits to having a crush on Leighton. Also, the story-within-a-story version, as Ed!: The Musical features suggestive scenes with Sir Edmund Hillary.
    Leighton: It desecrates the memory of the greatest ever New Zealander!
    Jonah: How so?
    Leighton: Where to start? Maybe where you imply, not at all subtly, that Hillary and Tenzing were...you know.
    Jonah: Climbing buddies?
  • Nightmare Fuel: "Boris The Spider" can be this for people afraid of bugs, especially with a brief look at Sugar's book of exotic spiders.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Lesley-Ann Brandt is instantly more recognisable for her work in Spartacus: Blood and Sand, The Librarians 2014 and Lucifer.
  • Testosterone Brigade: Leilani of course, as characters played by Lesley Ann Brandt are prone too attract. Kirsty in a different way, with her Perky Goth appearance, and One of Us nature.
  • Too Good to Last: Despite its funny premise and clever writing, the show was given a rather late 10 pm timeslot and only lasted one season.
