Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In "Oh Hostage My Hostage", Carter is unimpressed by Lee's first attempt at "smack talk" ("you are not as good at attracting women as you claim to be"). However, at the end of the episode he says to Cole "I don't know how he fits an ego so large into a frame so small". He asks Carter if he did it right, to which Carter answers "that was actually pretty good."

Added DiffLines:

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Happens often. Played straight and subverted in a single scene in "Badass Cop": an old man easily beats up Carter, who'd held his own against the other assailants, but is no match for Lee.


* {{Squick}}: a thug gets impaled by a firepoker in one episode.


* GrowingTheBeard: The first episode was a poorly condensed version of the original movie's plot, but the other episodes after that have improved.
