These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ho Yay: For the most part, Chris has a great deal of unwarranted respect for Alan and is perfectly happy to gloss over his mistakes and incompetence, so much so that he plants a big, wet kiss on Alan's lips in the final episode.
On other occasions, however, he seems to take sadistic pleasure in bullying and psychologically tormenting him, thus making it unclear whether this is just him playing mind-games.
Harsher in Hindsight: One 'report' was about a terrorist attack at the World Trade Center, involving hijacked planes, no less!
Hilarious in Hindsight: As mentioned on the main page, the series appears to have somehow inspired the television news program openings of today, complete with computer-designed graphics and overly pretentious music. Compare and contrast, if you will, The Day Today's opening with that of the current BBC News, or Channel 4's.
Memetic Mutation: Some of the names of the racehorses at the delayed 6:30 from Marple: Two Headed Sex Beast, Zeinab Badawi's Twenty Hotels. The Bobby Davro Snooker Experience from On The Hour is the name of at least one band.
Moment Of Awesome: in the pilot, later reworked into episode 5, Morris single-handedly tricks Australia and Hong Kong into going to war simply so he could cover it, then offers a series of gritty reports on the horrors of war ('As I was eating my cornflakes this morning, a soldier's head flew past the window, shouting "Victory!"')
Also, the Queen finally delivering her long-awaited punch to John Major.
