YMMV / Fresh Meat

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Howard using a hairdryer to dry multiple ducks hung in the kitchen, all whilst trouserless.
  • Canon Sue: Oregon. Weird name? Check. Unusual hair? Check. Stange and (arguably fanservicey) taste in fashion? Check. A perfect singing voice that seems to come out of nowhere? Check. So beautiful that she manages to attract two generations of the same family? Check. Easily Forgiven for everything from sleeping with her lecturer to deliberately sabotaging a rival poetry magazine? Check.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: When Vod brings to everyone's attention that JP paid for the lavish party they're at.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Despite the fact that JP is utterly self-absorbed and frequently makes scathing comments, he's still the one who gets the most sympathy, be it from being exploited by his stoke "friends" or the death of his father.
    • Vod too. See the third example of Tearjerker below. After having to grow up with a mother who calls her daughter a millstone around her neck and says she wishes you were aborted to her face, who can blame Vod for her behaviour?
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Because the Hulu version for America didn't license the songs, in episode 7 Vod listens to a generic Queens of the Stone Age knock-off rather than the actual band's "I Feel Like A Millionaire".
  • Tear Jerker: When JP starts outpouring his fears for his father's health and desperately asking for a hug from Oregon's horse whilst on LSD.
  • The Woobie: Josie seems to be turning into this in the second series: Her old flame gets married to someone else, she accidentally breaks Heather's arm practicing ju-jitsu, she leaves the keys in the front door causing the house to be ransacked, and she sticks a dental drill through her subject's cheek in a practical exam.
