Trivia / Midnight Screenings

  • Cast the Expert: Given that Allison Pregler has covered the original show extensively, Brad takes her to Baywatch (2017). Ditto Linkara to Power Rangers (though Brad also took him to Chi PS, if only to troll fans with a picture of Lewis holding the ticket to that).
  • Creator Backlash:
    • Jillian left the show because she didn't enjoy doing it anymore.
    • Brian and Allison have both left the show, partially as a result of the #ChangeTheChannel movement and have publicly expressed feelings of disillusionment towards Brad in general. Both actively turned against Brad and Laura after the Yesterday review, when Laura claimed that after her father's suicide, someone had sent officers to his funeral under the pretense that Brad had committed suicide and the two implied that this situation was somehow Allison's fault. Allison then revealed that she'd kept this alleged incident secret, while revealing texts from the day, when Laura claimed it was a Swattingnote

  • Creator Couple: There are three husband-and-wife teams on Team Snob: Brian and Leddie, Dave and Sarah, and Brad and Laura. Brian and Brad are double examples, as they were formerly married to Sarah and Jillian respectively.
  • Enforced Method Acting: The video on Breaking Dawn Part 1 with Jillian getting plastered with all kinds of messy things. She revealed she knew what the items were, but didn't know when she'd get hit with them.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • "The ____ and ____ Show" ("Brad and Sarah," "Brian and Irving," "Brad and Dave," etc.), referring to the varying dynamics that result from different reviewer pairings.
    • "A wild ____ appears!" whenever someone sits up or chips in from the backseat.
  • Missing Episode: According to Brad himself, the very first episode (him and Jerrid reviewing Thor) disappeared due to a Blip glitch.

  • Name's the Same: Since there are two Brians (Brian Lewis and Brian Irving), the latter is referred to by his last name (although early episodes called him "Virtual Boyd"). Also, the Vaxxed review features a one-time guest named Sara (no H), who is a different person than usual reviewer Sarah Gobble.
  • Referenced by...: Cinema Snob Reviews Frozen (a fan comic where The Cinema Snob reviews Frozen) uses a few pics from this series, such as how Hilarious in Hindsight it is to see Jake bash Frozen from the trailers, when he would gush about the actual movie.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers:
    • The video on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was temporarily taken down by Warner Bros., despite Brad pointing out that it was a review by two people in a car that had no footage from the movie whatsoever. The lack of legal standing meant that the video was re-uploaded the same day. What makes this even more of a Headscratcher is the fact that this was a favorable review of the movie that, if anything, would encourage more people to go see it.
    • Advertisement:
    • The War Room video was temporarily taken down on YouTube due to YouTube needing proof that Brad owns footage of him and Dave sitting in a car.
  • Throw It In!: Despite the unscripted nature of the show, this can still happen. It's how the "Slaver Brian" joke got started.
