!!This work provides examples of:
* AccentuateTheNegative: Often used when critiquing music videos and the accompanying music.
* BlackAndNerdy: Scooter, who runs the public-access show's technological aspects.
* BrandX: Averted, as real brands were always featured prominently on the show.
* CausticCritic: Karaz and Chino.
* EndOfSeriesAwareness: In the last episode, camera man Scooter wanders off, with the rest of the cast following him, indicating that the show's writers knew that it would be the finale.
* FatBestFriend: Karaz.
* GratuitousSpanish: Often used by Latino character Chino, who is definitely proud of his Latino heritage.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Karaz and Chino, who are comparable to Series/SiskelAndEbert.
* ProductPlacement: ''Tons'' of it, right down to the characters wearing real brand-name apparel. Real product names were always used and displayed on the show.
* ShortRunners: ''Station Zero'' was on the air for just a few months and was then never seen or even mentioned again. The show reportedly failed to meet MTV's ratings expectations.
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Live from the Bronx'', the fictional public-access show that the four main characters run.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Karaz and Chino.
