* DamselScrappy: Charlene
* EarWorm: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH7VhP0Yr7c The theme]]
* NarmCharm: If Andy Griffith doesn't reel you in, the HamAndCheese acting and [[FashionDissonance 1980's fashion]] will.
* NightmareFuel: "The Dare"'s ending, specifically the final line: "[[spoiler:What are you gonna do, Ben? Get me the death sentence? [[LethalDiagnosis I've already got it]]]]". Yikes.
* SoBadItsGood: The show is full of over-the-top pastiche characters and a lot of courtroom antics, but who doesn't love a good murder mystery? It's a surprisingly enjoyable romp that is one of the few show's with Fred Silverman's name attached to it which isn't defamed as a spectacular dud.
