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.
The whole of Poland is apparently some third world wasteland.
Ambiguously Bi: Max, she dates only guys in show but says a ton of things that make her sound like she goes both ways.
"And the Married Man Sleepover" was full of this.
Base Breaker: Sophie. For some she's an annoying and pointless character who isn't funny, relies on the same bland humour with each appearance and her role as of late has been reduced to her showing up at random parts during the episode to spout off unfunny one liners. While others think that Sophie has her genuinely funny moments, and some fans admit the fact she's played by Jennifer Coolidge redeems her slightly.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Within the show's continuity, at least. In the middle of "And the Pearl Necklace," Chestnut suddenly appears in Caroline and Max's apartment and eats some cupcake batter. No explanation was made of why he was back there and not in the stable, and his presence in the apartment hasn't been mentioned again.
A earlier episode points out they got him back from the stable.
The reason Caroline has never done anything she regrets with a man because in her head, it's Ashlee doing those things.
At first it seems odd that someone with a graduate degree in business can't find better work than a waitress at a diner, until you realize that the kind of companies that typically hire people with business degrees are also the kind of companies who wouldn't want to be associated with the family of a convincted embezzler.
Then again his sister seems to have no trouble with her business. To be fair cosmetics don't exactly scream white collar crime then agin neither do cupcakes.
Also the possibility that they might believe that Caroline's father simply bought her business degree.
Never Live It Down: Caroline in "And The Hold Up" when she urinates while the diner is being robbed. Sophie keeps cracking jokes about it and only stops after Han does the same thing at the theater and switches to him.
To be fair, a lot of this had to do with Max's relationship with Johnny turning into an Aborted Arc. Word of God states that season two will rekindle it. They do briefly only to leave it dangling again.
Many viewers seem to consider Andy to have far more chemistry with Max than Caroline, his actual love interest. Somewhat acknowledged when after they break-up, Caroline gets insanely jealous and invokes Girl-Code, after discovering that Max is "text-buddies" with her ex.
Unfortunate Implications: Michael Patrick King's unfortunate comment that the allegations of Modern Minstrelsy with Han were completely unfounded and that he himself understands prejudice because he's openly gay. Several critics had a field day pointing out the deep flaws in that comparison, as well as that his comment seemed to imply that either it's impossible for gay people to be racist; or that being gay somehow makes racism ''acceptable''.
Sophie being bisexual just to follow a trend in "And The Cronut". While there are people like that, a lot of people think bisexuality is "just a phase", that people only do it for attention, that it's not a real orientation, so having that be the case for a character doesn't bode well for the real bisexuals out there. Not to mention that it has no relevance to the plot, it's basically just thrown towards the end of the episode and then discarded just as quickly.
A lot of Max's jokes about her terrible childhood are funny in a dark way, but she has made several jokes that suggest she was sexually/physically abused by her mother's past boyfriends.
The Woobie: Caroline. Thanks to her father's crime, she has lost several opportunities to improve her and Max's business.
