    YMMVs for the Bob Newhart sitcom Bob 
  • Older Than They Think: This show demonstrates that the concept of "boomerang kids" existed before the millennials that it's commonly associated with (Trisha is actually a Baby Boomer).
  • Seasonal Rot: Season 2 had been considered as the worst turn since it had abandoned its comic book premise for a generic story involving the greeting card company.
  • Values Resonance: The entire theme in Season 1 dealing with gritty superheroes revival for the sake of "modernity" along with fallout among the readers and creators has aged well in The New '10s with the proliferation of superheroes in public mainstream.

    YMMVs for the singer B.o.B 
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • In "Nothin' on You", B.o.B says "You're my Wonder Woman; call me Mr. Fantastic." Even casual superhero fans know that not only are Wonder Woman and Mr. Fantastic not romantically involved together (in fact, it's common knowledge that Mr. Fantastic's one true love has always been Invisible Woman), but the two characters aren't even part of the same company or universe (Wonder Woman is DC, and Mr. Fantastic is Marvel.)
    • In "Flatlines," B.o.B claims that NASA is part of the Department of Defense. It's not.
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: Any discussion of him on the Internet these days relates less to his music than his conspiracy-pushing.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "Airplanes" is about B.o.B longing for the simpler days before his stardom, hence the pretending airplanes flying in the night sky are shooting stars, with one line saying "back when I was rappin' for the hell of it, but nowadays we rappin' to stay relevant". Nowadays, B.o.B has largely fallen to the wayside and is considered a flash-in-the-pan at best and a complete joke at worst.
  • Signature Song: "Nothin' on You" or "Airplanes".
  • Unfortunate Implications: "Flatline" has been criticized for pushing hideously anti-Semitic rhetoric — namely praising Holocaust denier David Irving and implicitly claiming that Jews secretly control the world's governments.

How well does it match the trope?
