* 'Twatty Who reviews': a voice over review show in the vein of WebSite/SFDebris, but with a lot more vitriol and a lot more sarcasm, drawing on a lifetime as a [[Series/DoctorWho classic whovian]] and a palpable disappointment with the new series. Seems to be the biggest hit with non-Hagan fans. Other shows reviewed in a similar manner include:

* [[AlternateUniverse Alternate Universe Counterpart]]: Nina Galas in the ''Film/DominionPrequelToTheExorcist'' review. She wears clothing with a lighter colour scheme and plain white facepaint, is generally more upbeat if [[BrokenBird slightly withdrawn]], and is routinely abused by the white-masked Tormentors.

Added DiffLines:

** When one of the terrorists from ''Mercury Man'' [[KickTheDog takes a child from his crying mother]], Linkara says that he misses the days when cartoonishly evil villains didn't remind him of the US government. They later try to guess what faction the [[TerroristsWithoutACause nameless terrorists]] are from, and he guesses the Republican Party.

Added DiffLines:

** Her reviews of ''[[Series/AdamAdamantLives Adam Adamant]]'' episodes cement the protagonist as one, despite the OncePerEpisode turning his back to a clearly evil woman who then knocks him unconscious. His constantly defeating gun-wielding thugs with a ''sword'' and dramatic flair helps a lot.
-->'''Diamanda:''' That guy made the mistake of bringing a gun to an Adam Adamant fight.

* YouFailLawForever: One of the major plotholes in The Thirteenth Child (nothing to do with the book). The police led by an assistant DA try to confront the villain, only for him to point out that not only is their only evidence completely circumstantial but it was obtained during a warrantless search of his house, and that they don't even have a warrant to do a legal search much less arrest him (he also pointed this out during the first visit, only for the assistant DA to act huffy at the idea). They then proceed to ignore this and don't even seek a warrant or call for backup when one of them dies. The review also points out that the death of the first police officer was caused by him breaking and entering without a warrant and violating the containment of a dangerous animal; taken by itself the villain would probably get off.

Added DiffLines:

* RousingSpeech: The mediocre one in ''Vikingdom'' is replaced by a supercut of much better ones, ranging from ''Film/IndependenceDay'' and ''Film/TheReturnOfTheKing'' to Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. She and Happy Viking are in tears after it.

Added DiffLines:

** She makes a few shots at UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump in the animated version of ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'', comparing him to FantasticRacist Edmund. When they choose Lucy over Edward, she notes that at least in fantasy a much more sensible female choice can beat out a lying cunt....which then turns into a more generalized TakeThat against society when she realizes that joke will probably be topical for a long, long time.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Mativo in ''Roar'' is literally this according to Hagan, since he's the only person in the film that insists on treating wild animals as wild animals rather than big house cats. She then notes that his actor was also one of the few to avoid the big cats, and by [[SarcasmMode complete coincidence]] was also one of the few cast members not to get mauled by them.
