YMMV: The Thin Blue Line
- Ensemble Darkhorse / One-Scene Wonder: BRIGADIER BLASTER SUMP, DAMN YOU! (It's helped by the fact he's played by Stephen Fry).
- Moral Event Horizon: Baz, a teenage boy is revealed to have crossed it when he forces his confused girlfriend, Natalie to throw her baby in a rubbish bin. She is at least remorseful for it, but Baz remarks "So what, who cares? It probably weren't mine anyway." This nearly causes Fowler to hit him.
- So Okay, It's Average: It's not all bad. It can be quite funny. But there are much better (and worse) British comedies out there.
- Tough Act to Follow: It was unlikely the series was ever going to be better than Elton and Atkinson's previous work on Blackadder.
