* ValuesDissonance: Tim casually calls the gender-fluid Vulva a "tranny", which is now considered a highly offensive slur against trans people. Though, to the show's credit, Vulva is more a target of comedy for her [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible bizarre, incomprehensible performance art]] and the fact that [[TheWoobie she's mean to Brian]] than the fact she's genderfluid.

** The scene where Bilbo [Bill Bailey] and Tim [Simon Pegg] to a celebratory dance was a well circulated GIF when Bill Bailey won Series/StrictlyComeDancing in 2020



* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Widely praised and practically worshiped by comedy nerds, a decade later the series can feel light and underwhelming to newcomers finding it via ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' and ''Film/HotFuzz'' (especially if they're not huge fans of film able to catch many of the references).


* HollywoodPudgy: In the first episode of series 2, Marsha tells Daisy that she looks well [[ComplimentBackfire stating that a lot of people lose weight when travelling]]. In spite of this, Daisy looks visibly trimmer than she did in series 1 due to the fact that Jessica Hynes had been pregnant while filming.

* HilariousInHindsight: The solid nerd wisdom of "...as sure as eggs is eggs and [[StarTrekMovieCurse every odd number]] ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[StarTrekMovieCurse movie is shite]]." Pegg later joked about fate putting him in (the eleventh) ''Film/StarTrek2009'' to show he was talking out of his arse. He then went on to co-write ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', which is yet ''another'' odd-numbered Trek.

** In one of the episodes, there was a brief scene where Brain Topp accidentally gets covered in paint when he moves a ladder. This scene becomes funnier when you realise that his actor (Mark Heap) played a character in ''Series/FridayNightDinner'' who goes through a similar issue.
