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.
Examples for the game show
Adaptation Displacement: Given that the Wink Martindale era hasn't been reran in many years, it's very unlikely that most people realize Catch 21 is a revival.
Funny Moments: A couple on Las Vegas Gambit fell out of their chairs after winning a 21.
The circulating 1974 episode has a couple playing the Bonus Round that gets three Aces with their first three cards, then a Deuce. Of course, since the first point where losing could happen is 12, they continue onward (the score display flashing the first digit of "1" all the while thanks to the Aces)...and their fifth card was a 6.
Any big winner on Catch 21, given that it doesn't happen often.
A recently unveiled 1976 episode had a special prize on the Gambit Board where if a winning couple matched two halves of a "check", they could win up to $10,000 in cash depending on the check they completed (the other checks were worth $500, $1,000, and $2,500). In the first trip to the Gambit Board, the winning couple completed a $500 check, plus added $1,000 and a new Chevy Vega by getting a Blackjack. In the second trip to the Gambit Board, a new winning couple found the $10,0 half of the check on their fourth pick after finding two 00 halves in their first two picks, but they were in a bustable position due to having 13. Luckily for them, Elaine drew a "5", so they won the ten grand.
July 1, 2009: Even a former Game Show host can't add, said emcee being Larry Toffler of the syndicated Finders Keepers.note (Toffler has probably had the worst post-series life of any game show emcee not named Ray Combs of Family Feud, if his subsequent appearances are anything to go by. On this and his previous three shows Debt, Greed, and Russian Roulette; (yes, that's really the chronological order), he played the game for himself and not for charity like practically every other former emcee has done.) While holding a 13, with his opponent holding a 10, Larry kept the next card (a 10) and busted himself.
September 27, 2010: Kimberly passed a 5 to Shawn, who already had a "soft" 16. This, after saying she wouldn't pass to Beau so he wouldn't get 11. So stupid, it was uploaded by GSN itself.
For some, he is Cool Personified, what with his accent, coat, playing card motif, mysterious origins, tragic backstory, and suave demeanor, and one of the most stylish and interesting characters in the entire franchise. He's even given a lot of credit for refusing to give up on a girl that could kill him just by having sex with her, and trying to stay by her side no matter what.
For others, he's a living personification of everything that's wrong with the The Nineties. His backstory is convoluted, his costume is ridiculous, his Funetik Aksent makes it hard to read his lines (or just plain sounds stupid), his entire characterization is so overly focused on mystery and "style" that he comes across as flat, and his powers are useless and stupid. He's also blamed for "ruining" Rogue by giving her a reason to angst, holding her back from any real development, and just milking the soap opera cliches for all they're worth.
Launcher of a Thousand Ships: For a long time (and probably to this day) Gambit has fulfilled this role in X-Men fandom, being paired with any and every character out there, regardless of whether he likes them, or whether he's even met them in the first place.
