YMMV: Trust Us with Your Life
  • Crazy Awesome: David Armand. Granted he's the only one who clearly gets some time to prepare his thing (acting out the lyrics in time with the song), and he's got a few reused moves in his inventory, but he'll still leave you wondering just how he could pull it off.
    • Even better - what you get to see in this show is technically a Bowdlerisation of his past numbers on Fast And Loose and well before that!
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Compared to the generic tunes used in the old "Scene to Rap" or "Kick It!", the new music for "Rap It!" has noticeably been updated to fit more contemporary rap styles. Wayne is on fire this time round.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: David Armand, hands down.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Florence Henderson episode ended with Craig going "Hi, I'm a cute little orphan brought into the cast of Trust Us with your Life to boost ratings!" Now the number of episodes is in single-digits, not even outlasting Green Screen.
  • Ho Yay: Longtime fans of these guys are well aware of the Ho Yay tendencies.
  • Never Live It Down: Sadly, Florence Henderson still had to reiterate that there was never any actual Cast Incest on the set of The Brady Bunch.
    • Though the show was going down Cancellation Boulevard anyway, its demise was likely hastened by Fred Willard's arrest for public indecency.
  • Serial Numbers Filed Off: The whole show is basically this to Fast And Loose.
  • Squick: David Armand's gesture for the word 'feel'? Feeling his nipples.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Jack and Kelly Osbourne are clearly a lot sweeter on each other than they'll admit to... without Ozzy affecting the atmosphere, anyway.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks:
    • For one thing, switching to some faceless backstage guys for audio cues instead of having the players or host do it themselves has sapped the very soul of the show by taking control away from the players.
    • Replacement Scrappy: Since most consider the show a Spiritual Successor to Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Drew Careys Improvaganza, some fans view Fred Willard as this, in comparison to Drew Carey.
    • Also inverted as well - "Face the Music" works better here than back in Fast And Loose since guests are bound to have a harder (and thus more interesting) time guessing David Armand's gestures than regular players who see him every week.
