- Growing the Beard: The second season, and especially the last three episodes, are far superior to the first.
- Ho Yay: Farnsworth and Charlie do quite a bit of flirting. Since they're both actually gay, Shipping is a likely probability.
- Magnificent Bastard: The jury's still out on Balco, but just watch him in the series finale. Dude played one hell of a game of Xanatos Speed Chess.
- Screwed by the Network: The show went on a long hiatus after summer 2009, then returned Christmas Eve 2009 to air three new episodes, the last of which was the series finale. Christmas Eve? What were they thinking?
