* AbortedArc: Della's romance with Michael certainly feels like one. After becoming a major plot point in Season 1, it is barely referenced in Season 2.



* AmbiguouslyGay: Aretha, insofar as she can bear the company of any other human being.


Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Callum, a random member of Lee Rhind's gang in the first season, becomes [[spoiler:Germaine's love interest]] in the second.


Added DiffLines:

** CharacterizationMarchesOn, however - by Season 2 she has become more of a WideEyedIdealist, whose fears move on to more realistic concerns, such as the future of the planet.


Added DiffLines:

* SeriesFinale: Though it was not [[ScrewedByTheNetwork necessarily intended as the last episode]], there is a kind of resolution - [[spoiler:Both Germaine and Aretha have their hearts broken, Germaine gains a modicum of empathy, Aretha admits to having emotions, Grampy accepts his divorce, Della reunites with Sean, father of all her children, and there's even a DancePartyEnding]]. According to Caitlin Moran, this still left the SeriesGoal unfulfilled - [[spoiler: Germaine losing her virginity]].


Added DiffLines:

* TransparentCloset: Germaine's claim that Aretha is in one of these is the basis for an entire episode. [[spoiler:As it turns out, she's correct]].


Added DiffLines:

* VacationEpisode: The series finale. Even despite taking place mainly in a decrepit caravan, it boasts its fair share of SceneryPorn and the surprise reappearance of one character.

* GenkiGirl: Germaine. A thousand times, Germaine.
