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: Lincoln Heights
Angst? What Angst?: Despite all the traumatic situation the Suttons go through, they somehow remain sane and normal. This is what makes them a Badass Family.
Growing the Beard: As the kids age and become more important to the show's story lines, the quality of episodes noticeably increases.
Unfortunate Implications: While Lincoln Heights does it's best to deconstruct common stereotypes of African Americans (and does an excellent job of it), it also unintentionally reinforces the belief that blacks and whites live in completely separate worlds and cannot coexist together.
