YMMV / Early Edition

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Christmas Episode had the scene where Santa grabs a bomb and is presumably killed. A similar situation happens in Grey's Anatomy when a bomb squad guy played by Kyle Chandler is killed after removing a replica bazooka shell lodged in a man's gut.
    • Near the end of the pilot, Gary tells Det. Tagliotti that he hopes to never see her again. The next episode showed she got demoted with Crumb taking her place.
  • Iron Woobie: Again, Gary, for the same reasons as The Determinator.
  • Narm: When the homeless man falls to his death in "Fate", particularly the awkward bluescreen effect where it just looks like a picture of the homeless man getting smaller. This was sadly cut in syndication.
  • The Scrappy: Patrick. Made worse that he's named after one of the creators, Patrick Q. Page.
    • Also Henry (and to a lesser extent his mother) for basically meeting every qualification for the Cousin Oliver trope including being forced into the plot of every episode he was even including a discussion between two countries. In fact, he was so hated that he and his mother were dropped from Season 4 altogether
  • Tear Jerker:
    • "Thief Swipes Mayor's Dog", even if your not a dog lover. Phil losing his beloved dog Bugle can hit anyone who's had a dog, and lost one.
