YMMV: Wiseguy
  • Awesome Music: Nights in White Satin playing on the jukebox at the conclusion of the Sonny Steelgrave arc.
    • Also, one of the best themes ever by Mike Post (which is saying something).
  • Jumping the Shark: The Guzman arc was dubbed "Dumbguy" by fans, especially given the unconvincing off-screen disappearance of Vinnie Terranova. Ratings declined from this point, leading to the eventual cancellation of the series.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The Dead Dog Records arc, which starred Tim Curry, Deborah Harry, Glenn Frey, and Paul Winfield, has never been officially released on home video, never been legally streamed, and never been rebroadcast...and it isn't likely to be, either, because of the rights issues with the music.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Don Aiuppo reveals himself to be one of these in Season 3.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Frank McPike has several of these, such as his Deadpan Snarker comments while being tortured by Mafia thugs, and his facing down an eccentric billionaire with a rocket launcher, armed with only a snubnosed .38 pistol.
