YMMV / Moonlight

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Josef, largely due to his Deadpan Snarker tendencies and the fact that he, unlike Mick, doesn't get overly broody about his Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Fanservice: Beth's cameraman attaches a mike to her bra in the first episode. Her shirt hangs open then, and Christian rips it open again later.
    • For those more inclined towards men, both Mick and Josef are seen shirtless. Mick even has an extended scene of him working out.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At the end of the first episode, which features Goth girls obsessing over vampires, Mick is shown in flashback carrying four-year-old Beth out of a burning building, and it's established that he remained nearby to protect her as she grew up. What (then-topical) song could they have used as background music? If you guessed My Immortal and then immediately started laughing, you're right!
  • Relationship Writing Fumble: Inverted. Mick and Beth sometimes actually come off having a father-daughter relationship, which is not what was intended.
  • The Scrappy: Josh, Beth's boyfriend. The reason for this is primarily due to him being the Romantic False Lead which stands in the way of the Official Couple Mick and Beth. He's also judgemental and jealous of their relationship, (rightly) suspecting Beth has feelings for Mick and vice versa.
    • Becomes an Alas, Poor Scrappy when he dies in a particularly painful and horrific way while trying to stand up to a mobster.
