YMMV: Wild Palms

  • Adaptation Displacement: Though the series is not well-known today, even lesser-known is the serial comic by Bruce Wagner (who wrote both the comic and the TV series).
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Original soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto and a lot of fine retro music.
  • Ho Yay: Harry and Kreutzer. Lampshaded numerous times.
    Kreutzer: "Harry! You're gonna make me fall in love with you!"
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: Wagner described the series as "a tone poem" - it doesn't have so much a plot as a series of circumstances that characters are exposed to, interact with, and are shaped by.
