YMMV: How to Be Indie

  • Cliché Storm: Could have been this, but manages to subvert it with Lampshade Hanging and genuinely likeable actors.
  • Funny Moments:
    Chanra: I also used three of your personal items to clean the trashcan, see if you can guess which ones.
  • Ear Worm: The opening theme.
    • The new music for the How To Do Something sections. WITH A RAP!
  • Foe Yay: Carlos and Indie. He especially likes the idea of playing kiss in the closet with her a bit too much.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Melinda Shankar (Indie) plays Alliah Bhandari on Degrassi. In fact her character was Put on a Bus so she could film this show, and The Bus Came Back when she finished filming and the show ended.
  • Hollywood Homely: Abi is supposed to be uncool and a bit plain, but the actress who plays her, Marline Yan, looks like this.
  • Ho Yay: AJ and Mike.
  • Nightmare Fuel: One episode has Indie getting a pet turtle to try to persuade her parents she can look after a dog. She then has a nightmare that a giant turtle chases her down and eats her.
  • Painful Rhyme: The poems Indie writes.
    Abi: You wrote this, on purpose?
  • Special Effects Failure: Leading to Narm Charm in episode 9.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Indie's favorite movie.
