Fictional Tropes I’m Tired Of: A List

15 Jan
  • Shit-ass reporter trying to make terrible things happen so they’ll have something to report
  • “Tracker” character looks at ground, immediately deduces everything that happened in that area for the last three weeks
  • Not Like Other Girls
  • Killing the scrappy to make me feel sad
  • Minor Character Of Color Saves White Hero At Cost Of Own Life
  • Weirdly religious cowboy villain (it was fine in 3:10 to Yuma, but please let’s stop)
  • Grizzled, stoic, totally boring guy gets redemption arc at expense of anyone else’s character development
  • The Marketing: “This property is all about WOMEN!”
    The Property Itself: *is mostly about dudes!*

Percentage of these tropes present in Godless: 100%.

How much of the show I watched anyway: 100%.

Personal shame meter: 50%.
