YMMV: Ellen
  • Anvilicious: In season five episode "When Ellen Talks, People Listen" Ellen uses her radio show to vent about how people in L.A. are so isolated that they dismiss people in need of help.
  • Jump the Shark: "The Puppy Episode" — after Ellen came out, the final season turned out to be quite the Base Breaker. Some felt that, while meaning well, it only further stigmatized homosexuality by having nearly every episode be about being gay, and how misunderstood gay people are, while others felt that even if they agreed with the sentiments expressed, the show itself had become boring, repetitive and preachy, sacrificing humor for message.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Spence went on to play Cupid and some foul-mouthed agent.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Paige and Spence, who at first hated each other.
