YMMV: Mongrels
  • Awesome Music:
    • Amazingly, every episode of the series so far has had a song sung by a different member of the gang. But the best one by far is Nelson's song "Breaking Up Is Such A Faff" in Episode 6.
    • Not quite every episode. In episode 5, Nelson tries to sing to Destiny about his love for her, but she ends up being dragged away by Gary shortly after the song begins. However, to make up for this, he sings lead on two songs across the whole series instead of one like everyone else.
  • Crossing the Line Twice: Like many UK sitcoms Mongrels is dedicated to offending as many people as possible solely in the name of a good hearty laugh.
  • Dude, Not Funny!:
    • Things like 9/11 and Vince eating his children.
    • The creators seem to realise these Unfortunate Implications with some dialogue in episode 8.
    Marion: Yes, it's nothing to do with religion.
    Random person: Just to clarify, it's nothing to do with religion.
    • One reviewer in the Daily Mail thought this about a Cutaway Gag involving Dr. Shipman.
    • One cutaway gag involving a cat getting castrated by having its testicles tied on one end of a string and the other to a door. You should be able to figure this one out...
  • Ear Worm:
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Vince.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Nelson dates a chicken in the first episode, which is treated like an interracial relationship... but then the chicken turns out to be evil.
  • Ho Yay:
    • The circle stroking mentioned above, and one of Marion's attempts to break up Nelson and his sister (Nelson's sister, not Marion's) involved dressing in drag and claiming to be his wife.
    • Nelson And Vince get a lot of Ho Yay when they are stuck in the "Island" and actually end up having sex.
  • Les Yay: Episode 3 involves Kali and a lesbian crow.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "Oi!" - a minor one but nevertheless.
    • Not that minor for those of us who attended Eurofurence 16 and had to suffer from this all through the convention...
  • Periphery Demographic: For understandable reasons, the show is quite popular among UK's Furry Fandom.
  • Tear Jerker: Kali's breakdown can be seen as this... that is until she blinds a kid.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Timeslot and general tone of humour not withstanding of course.
