Today, I ask you folks to name your picks for the worst catchphrase on a show you otherwise enjoyed.
Pop Culture Theme Time is a feature where I put a question to you to see what you think about a particular theme. I might later revisit the theme for a future Drawing Crazy Patterns or Top Five.
TV shows almost always have some sort of catchphrase, even the good ones. So I was wondering what show that you otherwise enjoyed had the worst recurring catchphrase on it?
My pick is Robin’s “Holy ____, Batman” recurring gag on Batman.
Ooph, those were bad. The show was already over the top and that stuff just made it so much more so, but not in a fun way. It also sort of tarnished the Robin character forever (not dramatically tarnished, but a bit), as people will be repeating those “Holy” bits in connection with Robin for as long as the character exists.
What’s YOUR pick?
