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.
Crosses the Line Twice/Nightmare Fuel: The show swings between the two all the time. The material is so over the top because otherwise it would be more horrific and depressing than it already is.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Beth and Pickles. The former for being relatively cute, well, by this show's standards anyway. The latter for providing some of the best lines in the show and her status as a former resident of the Hill leaving fans to speculate why she'd give it up. There's surely a story behind it somewhere.
