YMMV Tropes for the Film:
- Cult Classic
- Harsher in Hindsight: In 1991, a man named Eric Keene broke into Stephen King's home in Bangor, ME, and confronted King's wife Tabitha. He claimed that King had plagiarized the book Misery, and also claimed to have a bomb in the box he was carrying. Upon Keene's arrest and inspection of the box, what was inside turned out to be a fake bomb made of straightened paperclips and pencil erasers, and no one was hurt in the incident (depending on your view, this could also be a case of Hilarious in Hindsight).
- So Okay, It's Average: The critical consensus seems to have been that the film has some funny moments, but it's too uneven.
YMMV Tropes for the Television Series:
- Fridge Brilliance: In "Snowed In," for a short time after her injury, Flash behaves like a small, scared child, not at all like her usual self. She actually seemed like she was about to cry when she saw that Victor hadn't made a particular crab dish that she liked. At first, it seems strange, not only because Flash isn't usually the one to whine, but also because a teenager should not be so emotional over a minor injury like a sprained ankle. But in hindsight, it makes sense. Flash was always the hypercompetent one, always on top of things. She was the one who took care of other people, including Victor and even her own mother. And now, she was forced to rely on others to take care of her. The feeling of helplessness that comes of being injured and dependent on others wasn't something she was used to handling, and it frightened her. It wasn't long, though, before she managed to pull herself together and resumed her usual snark.
- Harsher in Hindsight: Flash takes care of a drunk Victor like a pro which isn't surprising because she's usually supercompetent. Then we learn that her mother is an alcoholic and it becomes sad. She probably has a lot of experience taking care of drunk people.
- Ship Mates: Cody/Grace and Romeo/Emily in contrast to Cody/Emily.
