- Broken Base: A lot of people see this as Nick's poor, belated attempt to rip off Wizards of Waverly Place. On the other hand, a lot of people also agree that this is the best live-action show on Nickelodeon right now, and the best one they've had since at least the end of Victorious.
- Crossover Ship: Taylor has been shipped with Max Thunderman ever since the crossover special.
- Ear Worm: The theme song is pretty catchy.
- Moral Event Horizon: Big Ronnie crossed it when he tried to get rid of the Preston's for no reason whatsoever
- Retroactive Recognition: Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores would later play Trip in Game Shakers after this show ended.
- They Copied It, So It Sucks!: Many people's first reactions to this show are to liken it to a Wizards of Waverly Place rip-off a couple years too late.
