Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
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.
YMMV: Hill Street Blues
Ear Worm: Mike Post's iconic instrumental theme. If you grew up in the 1980s, you will recognize the first few bars of this tune.
Harsher in Hindsight: Dominique Dunne, daughter of writer Dominick Dunne and best known as the older daughter in Poltergeist, appeared on the show as a teenage mother and victim of parental abuse. Some of her bruises were real, having been inflicted by her violent boyfriend the night before. He murdered her shortly afterward.
