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 Shadow
1930 radio series and resulting franchise:
Awesome Music: "Omphale's Spinning Wheel" by Camille-Saint-Saens for the radio version, and Jerry Goldsmith's beautiful score for the movie.
Fair for Its Day: While many parts of the pulps are horribly racist, the Shadow is also notable for having an Asian and an African-American as agents at a time when they would usually have been villains or useless.
Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The radio episode "The Spider Boy." Thanks to Values Dissonance, we are told that Domestic Abuse is a minor peccadillo that can be solved simply by apologizing to the victim...but that owning an unusual pet (a large spider) that at no time harms or even threatens to harm a human being is a horrific crime deserving of a Karmic Death.
