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.
YMMV: The Life and Times of Juniper Lee
Awesome Music: June, Dennis, and Ray Ray singing "I Sing the Body Electric" from Fame at the end of "Enter Sandman".
In the show itself as it had Stewart Copeland (who most gamers may remember from his work on the first three Spyro the Dragon games).
The Scrappy: Ray Ray can and will grate on your nerves, primarily because he goes Squee at various disasters unfolding in front of him, talks and yells almost incessantly, and even comes across as a mild annoyance to Juniper as well. The fact that he also acts a lot like the Trope Namer in terms of personality doesn't help.
Unfortunate Implications: Having Dennis learn magic via roleplaying games because they're based on actual magic may have been a neat trick to make him good for something, but in Real Life, roleplayers get crap because of people believing their games have something to do with actual occultism.
What an Idiot: Quite a few people get thrust into dangerous situations in the show, without any sense of gravity whatsoever (the tourists in episode 3, for example, think it's all part of the show when heavy objects are catapulted into their boat, which sinks and leaves them stranded in the ocean). Ray Ray tends to provoke this quite a bit some times.
They get super powers and the ability to see the supernatural, but they can't tell anyone, not even other members of their family or close friends. Since the supernatural is only seen by them, they spend a lot of time keeping the balance and often they have to head off to do so at a moments notice. This often leads to conflict with those around them who don't, and can't, understand why they're acting so oddly, isolating the Te Xuan Ze from others. One of the biggest issues is that until another Te Xuan Ze takes over, the current one must stay in Orchid Bay and he/she can't leave until he/she reaches adulthood and has children who can become the Te Xuan Ze. Until then, they are bound to city, unable to go on vacation/trips/jobs outside the town or colleges outside of town. If their dream job is unavailable in the town, like Ah-Mah's was, then tough luck.
Ah-Mah suffered a lot from this as her only child did not become the Te Xuan Ze, meaning she spent twice as long bound to the rules and was only free after her granddaughter June takes over. During the show, she is often seen doing many wild and crazy thing that are not expected of a grandmother, but she does them because its the first time she has been able to in her life (well, at least outside of Orchid Bay).
Sort of. Juniper claims that's why she does it, and Ah-Mah doesn't deny on trying to catch up on life now that she has a grand-daughter, but she is actually traveling the world trying to find a way to allow Juniper to leave Orchid Bay.
