TV Tropes

Unread post by boblipton » Fri Nov 22, 2013 9:49 am

One interesting, well written and frequently hilarious site I've been looking through lately is the TV Tropes Wiki. It covers, as its name suggests, tropes in TV, but also side issues including manga and books. If you're unfamiliar with it, you might wish to go poke around a bit to see how your favorite long-running show has been doing exactly the same thing in its own way." target="_blank

Known it for some time. It can keep you occupied longer than planned by luring you to the next page.
It's even got a page about

“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
—Philip K. Dick

That dull, brown place you visit when you're not traversing time and space, questing to destroy a ring, slaying vampires, doing science, dressing like a flying mammal to fight a clown, or attaching balloons to your house to fly to South America.

Best known for being the sole work in a completely different medium of its own, called "Reality". Surprisingly good graphics for a legacy system. For a work that's apparently taken a damned long time to develop before release to the general public, it ought to be good.

Supposedly contains the Daystar, that terrible orb that burns you and gives you cancer. Sometimes considered an inaccurate reflection of the true world of fiction. Recommended as part of a balanced diet. Beware of characters who end up here.

Suffers from a large case of pay to win.

A not-infrequent source of accounts of Muse Abuse, in-universe or otherwise.

Holds the world record for the longest-running series of all time. It is unlikely to be cancelled anytime soonnote , but we won't know if it's coming soon until the time comes; even though it has been critically panned and ratings continue to fall.

Hold on, "no monthly fee?"
