YMMV / Spill

  • Broken Base: Possibly the 20-second review style in the video reviews. It had its detractors even on the site itself, but it was more noticeable in the comments section of their YouTube uploads, where the more vocal audience there typically did not visit the website often and hear the uncut audio reviews.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Let's Do This, well... does this almost every episode.
    • John Rubio manages this on just about every episode of the LEOG.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Sometimes the crew is deeply divided in their opinions, and they don't hold back. After the Lockout audio review, a list was provided of some of the most memorable battles.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Korey jokes in the Jackass 3D review that the cast is going to do something stupid enough to get them killed. Less than a year after the film's release, Ryan Dunn was killed while driving under influence.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: As a passing joke in an early LEOG, Cyrus questioned if the Flash movie should be "Dark and Gritty". Recently he commented on a news article where they said that it was going to be just that.
    • From a June 2008 episode of A Couple of Cold Ones:
    Korey: (reading an e-mail) "Which of these upcoming movies do you think will cause the end of the world? Beverly Hills Chihuahua or Friedberg and Seltzer, the guys who did Meet the Spartans—"
    Carlyle: Yeah. The film is called Goodie Too Shoes.
    Korey: No, they said this one's called Disaster Movie.
    Carlyle: That's because they're full of shit. The movie is called Goodie Too Shoes.
    • Beau used to go on rage filled rants about video games, now he works at a video game company and happily claims it to be the best job he ever had!
    • During their review of Punisher: War Zone, the crew joked about the idea of a zombified Frank Castle punishing the guilty, a full year before Marvel introduced Franken-Castle.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Professor Jeff, who normally plays the goody two shoes hero by himself becomes a most magnificent bastard during Happy Hour.
    Jeff: I'm not normally like this when I'm by myself, but when I can tell people how to play, I say things like 'set that guy on fire!', 'jump off that cliff!', 'punch that pregnant lady in the stomach!'"
  • Memetic Badass: The Loading Bar's Skyrim character, Garfieldius, has quickly become a fan favorite, with requests constantly being made for them to do more playthroughs of the game. When given the option, Jason or Jeff will model an in-game character after Garfieldius.
    Jason: Every land has a hero. Skyrim has a legend. The legend of Garfieldius! Get out the way, bitches! GARFIELDIUS IS IN THE HIZZOUSE!
    • Later played with in their playthrough of Star Wars: The Old Republic, where Jason attempts to name a character Garfieldius, only to find out that someone else has used it. He was not amused.
      • Which also occurred in their playthrough of Guild Wars 2. Luckily, they decided just to name hiim "Garfieldius Prime".
    • Greedo the Horse, from Jeff and Jason's playthrough of Red Dead Redemption. John Marston, too, but he was probably already considered one by most people who had played the game.
  • Never Live It Down: Carlyle's infamous "Communist Lion King" rant. Since Korey did not provide him with the chance, Carlyle could not explain to the audience that it was a joke until he wrote a blog post afterward. He still falls victim to jokes about this every now and then.
  • They Panned It, Now They Suck: As with other popular movie critics, the reviewers at Spill receive this every now and then for certain movie reviews.
    • This also works both ways. As the crew has actually received hate for liking certain films.
  • Values Dissonance: Seeing as how it's a review site with (mostly) four guys who come from different walks of life and each have radically different views on just about everything, it was only natural that this trope would come up.
    • Korey, and Leon would always have trouble empathizing with films that dealt with "white people problems". See their review of Into the Wild, where the two aforementioned critics found the main lead to be far less sympathetic then Carlyle, and Cyrus did.
    • Pops up yet again in their review of A Better Life. Where the perpetually cynical Cyrus, has a hard time swallowing the leads saintly behavior, only to get called on it by Co-host.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Korey would receive calls almost exclusively from 13-17 years old's during earlier episodes of The Secret Call-in Show. This would usually result in him expressing disappointment. His theory is that the kiddies are drawn in by the animated reviews.
