YMMV: Roots
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The sequel series being titled "The Next Generations" after the original introduced us to Levar Burton.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Tom Moore crosses this the moment he appears onscreen when he rapes Kizzy. Strangely, he has a few Pet the Dog moments afterwards
  • Narm: The telegraph employee enthusiastically yelling "IT'S WAR!" in an excruciatingly high-pitched voice.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: This was the first time the slave trade was dramaticized onscreen in all its horrors.
