YMMV: Sliding Doors

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: James' reminiscences of his childhood sweetheart who, aged 8, left him for Gary Glitter.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The scene with James saying that his first ever girlfriend, when they were both pre-pubescent, ended when she left him for Gary Glitter is painful to hear now that Glitter has been exposed as a sexual abuser of young girls.
  • Idiot Plot: So much trouble could have been avoided if James Hamilton had thought to say to Helen Quilley on their first date "Oh, by the way I'm separated from my first wife and we're getting a divorce, but don't worry, it's all amicable".
  • Narm: Lydia leaving Gerry in one of the timelines: "It's over! Again!"
