  • Oh! Heavenly Cat: Lloyd is shot down and killed while walking down the street, but gets a chance to solve his own murder by god with only one catch, he has to do it as a human, specifically as Chevy Chase. Based on Oh! Heavenly Dog.

This story provides examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: Lloyd is seen drinking (and mentioned to be drinking) in every episode. It is implied to be because he is really lonely.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: Roger in episode 3 spends the whole episode needlessly killing random jungle animals around him, an obvious jab at the animal cruelty Cannibal Holocaust was infamous for.
  • The Cameo: Chester A. Bum can be seen outside the bar in a couple of episodes.
    • Catwoman (yes, the Halle Berry one) hits Zico in a BDSM club.
  • Cat Stereotype: Mocked incessantly in Episode 5. When Lloyd asks God (who is a pink unicorn voiced by Hugo from The Bible Reloaded) if he could possess a body similar to his own, the options he is given are that of a live-action Siamese (which is just footage of Brad’s real-life cat that Lloyd is based off of) and a racist Asian caricature that parodies the Siamese cat from The Aristocats.
  • Continuity Porn: The episodes rely heavily on certain movies reviewed by The Cinema Snob.
  • Credits Gag: All episodes have "The Monkey - Alex Bowski", even if such a character never appears. It was a deleted scene in the first episode, but given the credit remained, it was added to all the others for comedy's sake.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: The University of College.
  • The Film of the Series: The fourth episode has one for Tequila and Bonetti, with Lloyd highlighting he never heard of the original show.
  • Fratbro: Eli met with the Pooza and smoked pot with them to stick it to social media activists, mocking them for coughing when they try it and then burns down their village because "Satire."
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: The backgrounds at times have hidden jokes, such as Times Square featuring ads for Brad Tries...: The Musical, "Flaming Brian's Sauna Sauce" and "Revenge of The Big Box".
  • Friendless Background: In episode 2, the only "friends" Lloyd has are Chloe (who works for him), The Bartender (whom he pays money to for drinks), plus "Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker" ("Those last three are whiskeys." "At least I'm on a first and last name basis with them! Which is more than I can say about Chloe and bartender, and bartender is the one who introduced me to those three!"). Glynis asks for some space and tells him to get a friend so that she can be by herself for a while, becoming his arc for the episode. He eventually gains a friend in the form of Sasquatch.
  • Gilligan Cut: "I know what can save us! America, help us!" "Oh like that's really gonna..." And then "Hail to the Chief" plays as the president's seal is shown - from the Air Force One that just dropped everyone in America.
  • Human Resources: The Sasquatch's food cart appears to have some "long pork" in its ingredients.
  • Just Eat Gilligan: Taken literally. After being chased around by the hunters all day, Lloyd asks Sasquatch why he can't just overpower them, considering that they are shooting at them with cupcake guns. Sasquatch responds with "I never thought of it that way" and then bites both of their heads off. No repercussions on either of them.
  • Karma Houdini: In Episode 1, Lloyd got off scot-free after killing Dookie and Zico in broad daylight because Air Force One found them just as annoying as he did.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: This world seems to be co-inhabited by humans, anthropomorphic animals, cryptids and aliens.
  • Mad God: Shades of this. Not only does God manifest as a giant pink unicorn, but he lets Lloyd solve his own murder by possessing the body of actor Chevy Chase. Apparently he only did this for Lloyd.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Johnny and Trevor follow Sasquatch to Lloyd's office with the sole intention of shooting him to death. Not only do they instead target Lloyd for just being there half the time, but they start shooting at them as a conveniently placed cupcake gun, and later shoot Lloyd with a gun that looks like a real gun, but it shoots out harmless frosting instead.
    Trevor: Cupcake the bastard!
    Lloyd: What happened to you wanting to kill him?
  • Overworked Sleep: In episode 3, Lloyd is woken up by Chloe, having been sleeping at his desk till 4:30 in the afternoon.
  • Pun-Based Title: All episodes but 4. The first two are a Multiple Reference Pun as well (to Limp Bizkit's "Nookie" - which is pronounced like Nukie - and My Big Fat Greek Wedding).
  • Reference Overdosed: Oh God. Most are references for movies reviewed by The Cinema Snob, but there's everything from a Mystery Science Theater 3000 segment in episode 2 to the horrible misfire that was The Chevy Chase Show in episode 5.
  • Ridiculous Exchange Rates: Zico paid Lloyd with alien currency.
    Lloyd: …so when I visit Zico and Dookie's planet, I'll now have the right currency for an intergalactic hand-job.
    • Unfortunately, the $2,000 in alien currency Lloyd got paid was the equivalent of 50 cents.
  • Teach Him Anger: Lloyd's goal by the end of the first episode. Lloyd is told by Chloe that he is too easy-going, any bit of anger or irritation vanishing in an instance and it is that lack of passion that is keeping him single. By the end, he gets in touch with these feelings by killing the very annoying Dookie and Zico.
  • There Was a Door: Chloe hints that Lloyd's next friend will walk through their front door. They stare at the door, expecting somebody to walk in, only for the Sasquatch to smash through the wall right next to it. This becomes a recurring gag throughout the episode.
