  • Acceptable Targets: As stated in his review of "Conscience of the King", Chuck is very much an equal-opportunities offender, leaving no-one and nothing Star Trek-related sacred.
  • And the Fandom Rejoiced: He has started reviewing animation, including Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, the Star Wars animated movie/series (it was not very clear which in the promo.) Reactions have been nothing but positive thus far.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: His review of The Outrageous Okona pauses for a couple of minutes while he conducts a hilarious "battle of the wikis" between Wookieepedia and Memory Alpha. He compares their web pages that are devoted to breasts.
    • His recap of Next Generation events in his Star Trek Generations review (sung to the tune of the William Tell Overture), which he specifically warns never to bring up again as soon as it's over.
    • After seeing Riker in a coma during Shades of Gray, Chuck cuts to...wait for it...a floating Riker head bobbing along to Donuts, Go Nuts!
  • Crazy Awesome: His version of Janeway, especially after the events of the "Unimatrix Zero" review, where her plan A to fight the Borg involves getting assimilated.
    • Two words. MIND-BOMB!
      • Ironically, this would make Janeway one of the greatest heroes of the Dominion War. If that fleet got through, the Federation would have lost the war.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: From the reboot, about the death of Spock's mother: "Yo momma so dead, the only thing going down on her now are the worms!"
    • In the review of the STAS episode "Yesteryear", when talking about putting down fictional animals, Chuck mentions the time when Rainbow Dash broke her leg and had to be put down. Smash-cut to "I can still fly!" BANG!
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Using "Adiemus" as the theme song for his Farscape reviews. The song and the show work so well together, it's amazing to think they're actually completely unrelated.
    • Similarly, ACDC's "Who Made Who" is a quite fitting theme song for Blade Runner.
  • Follow the Leader: Linkara's "History of Power Rangers" series has a very similar tone, with the montage in "Power Rangers in Space" almost exactly like SF's in "All Good Things" (which Linkara did get permission).
    • Averted that Chuck won't be doing the Star Wars prequels, following in the vein of Confused Matthew or Red Letter Media, simply because of the redundancy. "Its been done, there's nothing left to be said".
  • Genius Bonus: Ensign Darwin is dead. Chuck's prime suspect: Richard Owen.
    • In "The Naked Now", he jokes about the Cyrillic lettering on the USS Tsiolkovsky's dedication plaque, specifically claiming that Russia is so poor that they have to use the number 3 instead of a letter. The 3-looking letter is actually the Cyrillic letter Z, but Chuck never mentions this. Then, in a Genius Bonus Brick Joke later in the episode, he calls Wesley a "spaz - S, P, A, three, spaz!" In fact, this was so much of a genius bonus that he actually had people trying to correct him in the comments.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In his review of "A Night in Sickbay", Chuck joked about how Jack Black isn't likely to be brought to a strange new world and start peeing on things. And yet later that exact same week...
    • He jokes that the famous unicorn scene from Blade Runner is Deckard having a sex dream about Rarity. The very next episode that aired after this video was put up is focused almost entirely on Rarity.
    • His final consensus of the Doctor Who story The Underwater Menace was that he would not mind if the lost parts of the story (the first, second and fourth episodes) were never found. Later that year, and for the first time since 2005, two episodes of Doctor Who were found...one of which was from The Underwater Menace.
  • Ho Yay: Loves to joke about it In-Universe.
    • Chuck repeatedly calls out when it appears Harry is in love with Tom, particularly in "Non Sequitur".
      • "Before and After" gives us this gem, where in an alternate timeline, Harry is Tom's son-in-law.

 Chuck: Well, screwing Tom's daughter is one step from screwing Tom himself...

    • Notes that the first film gave yaoi fans fainting spells from a couple of lines and scenes.
      • He says something similar when two versions of the Doctor and Bashir (one real, the other a hologram) appear in "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?"
  • Memetic Mutation: Several examples resulted in the minor internet meme "Don't fuck with the Sisko."
    • Also referring to the Defiant as the "USS Ben Sisko's Motherfucking Pimp Hand".
  • One of Us: In addition to being a reader of TV Tropes, and a major sci-fi buff, he's also a big fan of video RPGs, apparently, due to the large (but not intrusive) number of references to Fallout, Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Oblivion that he makes.
    • When he finally gave a Voyager episode ("Life Line") a 10 out of 10, it was captioned "Alert TV Tropes!"
  • Star Wars vs Star Trek Wiki Breastathon: Comparing the quality of each wiki page's on their universe's references on breasts (Star Wars won).
    • TWICE!
  • Tear Jerker: After his review of Dear Doctor SF shows a clip on Benjamin Sisko from In The Pale Moonlight where he says that saving a huge number of people is worth a guilty conscience...and then a clip of Phlox from Dear Doctor saying how Captain Archer now has his respect for letting an entire species die.
    • His dedication to the memory of Elisabeth Sladen at the end of the Seeds of Doom review.
    • Janeway refusing to listen to Seven's request to save her father, who she's just reunited with.
    • The Coda to his Star Trek Generations review a couple minute montage that does more to honor the legacy of James T. Kirk then the entire film managed.
    • The tribute montage to TNG set to "Under Pressure" in the "All Good Things" review.
    • The tribute for Data in Nemesis was much better then the movie allegedly gave to him.
    • The salute to the missing Doctor Who episodes, set to Paul Williams and The Muppets singing "Sad Song".
    • Talking about his twins being born 10 weeks early and the effects on him and how the plot belittles it during 'Real Life'.
