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.
Jerkass Woobie: Alan in the final episode of Season 2, although heavily debatable. He's still a complete idiot, but nearly everyone is making offhand remarks about his book being destroyed, he's told he hasn't bounced back at all, and he's seemingly starting to have another breakdown. Even the Actually Pretty Funny anecdote regarding Peter Purvis at the end of Season 2 feels like him clinging to the last traces of his own self-worth.
