YMMV / TV Trash

Go To

  • Acceptable Targets: He REALLY likes to tear Cartoon Network apart.
    • NBC isn't safe, either. Cancelling his favourite show (see below in "Funny Aneurysm" Moment) without a proper finale is the root of these jokes; he has not watched NBC since.
    • Also, the states of Oklahoma and California.
    • He also likes to rip on TNA every once in a while.
    • Oh, and American Football isn't safe, either. The Dallas Cowboys also get this treatment especially hard. In real life, Chris despises the sport for what he perceives is an overt amount of violence and an annoying (at best) fanbase. He barely covers the Dallas Cowboys on his DFW-focused sports blog.

    • He also really enjoys splitting reality TV into two.
  • Awesome Music: The theme song to the show.
  • Critical Research Failure: In his "Dumbest Power Rangers Moments" video, he states that the design of the SPD suits was stupid, mainly because the footage of them comes from Japan, and they go by a different language, yet have the numbers from the romanized languages. Little did he know that the Japanese use quite a lot of English loanwords in their speech, mainly colors and numbers. Plus, Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, the series SPD adapted, had the rangers' role calls have them say their designations, their numbers, in another language and "SPD" in that series is the translation of the series' name; "Special Police Dekaranger."
  • Crosses the Line Twice: "Ed was probably dropped on his head as a baby. Several times. For fun."
    • His breakdown after Baby Blues made a KKK joke. "Cut! The feed!"
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • After the infamous "Disney Scene" in "Road to the Multiverse", he declares that he would quit the review then and there, but, "unlike the Miami Heat, I DON'T QUIT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER". One year alter, the Miami Heat actually WON the NBA Finals. While it may be Hilarious in Hindsight, keep in mind, Chris is a Dallas Mavericks fan. And guess what team (successfully) battled the Miami Heat in the 2011 Finals?

    • To drive this home even further, in his Allen Gregory Review, he did end up quitting because he found the show even more offensive. In the middle of the fourth episode, no less!
    • He is critical of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip because Aaron Sorkin seems to hammer in the supposed message that NBC and SNL suck, even stating that he hates that part of the show despite hating NBC for his own reasons. A year and a half later, it was revealed the he hated NBC because ALF, his favorite show from childhood, was Screwed by the Network, and the shows sudden ending caused him to swear off watching anything on NBC.
    • The Orioles moment below could also be considered this, since they eliminated the Texas Rangers (Moore's favorite sports team) in the 2012 playoffs.
    • The gag in his Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" review where he tries to get John Kricfalusi institutionalised is a lot less funny knowing that John K. later revealed to have a mental illness that he self-meditated with alcohol. And it only got worse from there...

  • Harsher in Hindsight: In his Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation review, he go on an off-screen (yet still audible) rant against Saban stating that the reason why Ninja Turtles fans hate Power Rangers was due to how the turtles were treated in the crossover. In his (re-)review of the series during his TMNT Retrospective, he revealed that this episode caused him to Rage Quit Power Rangers, feeling that Saban did not have respect for the four Ninja Turtles he grew up with during the crossover.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • After seeing Cop Rock and Sonic Underground Chris states that he might check out Hannah Montana, he later did a review of the show. Even funnier, he actually praised the music in the show.
    • In It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown, after Peppermint Patty talks about how her team will destroy Charlie Brown's, Chris jokes "I wonder if Joe Girardi does that with the Orioles manager every year." In 2012 the Orioles made the playoffs for the first time in 16 years. Double hilarious in the fact that Yankees eliminated them in a close series.
    • He remarks at the beginning of his 101st episode that The Nostalgia Critic was one of the reviewers that influenced him to start his own web show. This was made when it seemed like the show was cancelled in favor of Demo Reel. Just a month and a half later, Doug Walker announced the revival of The Nostalgia Critic.
      • His TMZ review becomes funnier now that we know that the Nostalgia Critic, a person whom Rowdy admirers, hates TMZ as much as Rowdy does, if not more so.
    • In his review of "Turnabout Intruder", he calls the show's creator Gene Roddenberry sexist. In May 2013, one of the producers of Star Trek Into Darkness admitted a scene in the film came off as sexist.
    • His Glee Season 3 review ends with him hoping that Glee doesn't do their version of the Harlam Shake in Season 4... which they would later do.
    • His review of The Garfield Show narrowly averts this. It begins with the him and the Comic Strip Critic (A Cleveland Indians fans) watching a Rangers-Indians game. The two teams nearly were the two wildcards in the American League, but the Rangers ended up losing the 163rd game and failed to make the playoffs.
    • In early Mr. Enter reviews, he would cite brief references from TV Trash. Now it's often the other way around with Rowdy being influenced by Mr. Enter's videos and even making reference towards certain videos every now and then.
    Rowdy: (From his ICarly review) "I wish I didn't have to steal a line from Mr. Enter but (Lightly Shouting) POINTING OUT YOUR PROBLEMS DOES NOT MAKE THEM GO AWAY".
  • Special Effects Failure: Given the show's presumably nonexistent budget, it's bound to happen, like whenever Chroma Key is involved (especially in the Rainbow Brite review). Chris has lampshaded on occasion that his green screen is made out of the best sheets he can find at Target.
