YMMV / Gimme Gimme Gimme

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The ending of the Millennium special after Tom and Linda have both passed out from drinking too much had a group of men in pink shirts coming out of the back of the flat singing 'Tomorrow' from Annie.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Linda's line "I haven't been this excited since Jimmy Savile came to our open day at school and sat on my face!" isn't really so funny now.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Daisy, played by Rose Keegan, only appeared in one episode, but she was very popular with fans and is regarded as one of the most memorable things about the whole series. Heidi Honeycomb also counts.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Before they were known for their appearances in popular soap operas, Elaine Lordan appeared in this show in the recurring role of Linda's sister Sugar Walls and Charlie Condou appeared in one episode as Nino.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: It is unmistakenably late 1990s/early 2000s with so many references to late '90s pop music. The Millennium Special where they mention the Millennium Bug and Maureen Rees from Driving School.
    • Like many other works by Jonathan Harvey, the scripts are full of up-to-the-minute references that can even more precisely identify when the show is set. With references to applying hair mascara, a fantasy sequence recounting the very beginnings of the short-lived reality show-formed pop group Hear'Say, and descriptions of specific then-topical Big Brother contestants, often a single episode can be dated to a roughly 6-month period when that particular fad or pop cultural reference was still current.
  • Values Dissonance: Some of the jokes towards LGBT characters could be seen as homophobic nowadays, depending on the viewer.
  • The Woobie: Linda occasionally. She's constantly rejected. She's told she's ugly and stupid by almost everyone she meets, she's publically disowned by her celebrity sister Sugar, her father lies that he's in an iron lung as an excuse to have as little contact with her as possible, she appears to have had a loving mother, but she has passed away. She has, all in all, had a horrible life. The only reason it isn't a Tear Jerker is because she's so deluded she thinks she's gorgeous and that everyone loves her. However, sometimes that is implied to be simply a defence mechanism and that she's trying to be happy despite everything. Then there's the Downer Ending...
