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.
Awesome Music: Given the subject matter, the score is sporadic and woefully depressing, but Stephan Zacharias' work is absolutely wonderful, setting and reflecting the mood of the film perfectly. Der Krieg Ist Aus and Hoffnung Am Ende Der Welt in particular may be capable of inducing Manly Tears.
Fegelein is also portrayed as this in the film. A Nazi, an opportunist, a deserter… and a young man who just wants to live, unlike his lunatic fellow men determined to die for a crazy ideology that has totally blown up in their faces.
Moral Event Horizon: Just in case you were actually thinking of sympathizing with the poor, broken down old Hitler, he starts boasting about his genocide and treats the surviving Germans with contempt. Herr and Frau Goebbels, of course, display some very unusual attitudes toward family values.
The most obvious examples are when the viewer first sees children trying to hold back the Soviets and the notorious scene when Hitler snaps.
Towards the end of the film there's a string of suicides, most of them are off-screen but we have a close-up of one character who shoots himself very suddenly in the face in the middle of a makeshift hospital.
Also, Ernst-Robert Grawitz uses grenades to kill himself and his family during an otherwise serene dinner. And that's just the tip of the iceberg as far as cruelty to kids in this film goes.
Tear Jerker: When Frau Goebbels gets her children to consume a spiked drink, so she can slip them some cyanide later, her eldest daughter Helga knows something is amiss and won't drink. Eventually her mother forces her to drink it while she sobs the whole time, leaving the scene positively heartrending.
Which was worse: the fact Helga realized what her parents were doing and struggled enough to cause deep bruising, or the younger children just trustingly drank the sedative without knowing what it was?
The German citizens evoke sympathy as well. A father pleads with his son's Hitler Youth unit to save themselves, but they refuse. To add insult to injury, the man's own son calls him a coward.
And since the father was on the Eastern Front, he at least tries to get them to use a less obviously exposed position to fight. They ignore him and all die having done nothing to stop the Soviets or even hold them up for a while.
Elder German citizens were executed in the streets because they were unable to or unwilling to fight.
Fridge Logic: Why go through all this trouble showing the prizes on the belt and building the premise of the game around preventing them from going overboard, when you're just gonna lose them all if you fail on a later round? This is especially annoying since there were safe levels for the cash and the more expensive prizes may be turned down anyway.
Funny Moments: Jericho's reaction to a female fan accidentally blurting out her Hooters Girl credentials.
Padding: Averted by the last two episodes. ABC ordered six episodes, but due to the faster pacing in the final two episodes, they were able to edit the final two episodes into one. You can easily tell it was edited, however, since Chris awkwardly says "Welcome back" at the beginning of the final episode.
What an Idiot: You can safely blame Central Casting. One failed to connect the Hula Hoop with the dance it's named after, another said that Kentucky Fried Chicken serves "Italian B.M.T.", a third couldn't get the answer "Y2J" as Chris Jericho looked on in amusement, and everyone seemed to have difficulty when faced with anything involving pop music.
Fridge Horror: At one point in the game, it is possible for our hero to make out with a hotel receptionist. The thing is, the big reveal of the game shows that the hotel we have seen is a product of our protagonist's demented mind. In reality, he has killed all the people inside, including the receptionist. So, what does this say about him?
