YMMV: Emmerdale
  • Critical Research Failure: British road signs are not in Helvetica font!
    • Since when did North Yorkshire have Philips Residiums on 6m posts (this actually was seen briefly in a shot from an outdoor scene in 2011). The lamp-posts went, needless to say.
  • Mary Sue: Cain Dingle instantly falls into bed with any woman he meets, acts violent towards men and is involved in almost every aspect of crime. He has yet to receive any comeuppance.
    • Definityly YMMV as of 2012 he has been put in hospital and has to go into physiotherapy to recover and his dad has finally kicked out of the house after numerous threats, most of his family are sick of him and he is very unpopular in the village for precisely the above reasons.
    • However, by the end of the year he's fully recovered, more or less forgiven and accepted by everyone and even back sleeping with the woman whose affair with him prompted the above.
    • Because of this, he could be considered as a Karma Houdini, at least to some extent.
