Hey! Welcome back to the randomness or as I call it the exclamation hour! Minute. Second. Anyway, moving on.
I recently was thinking about tropes. What exactly is a trope Amanda? I’m glad you asked reader I made up in my head. A trope is an overused plot device used in movies, television, and novels. Even if you aren’t aware of it, you have favorite tropes and tropes that make your skin crawl.
I will be talking about my favorites.
Here are my top three favorite tropes that make my heart sing and best of all, make me want to spend money watching or reading that trope. All trope names were gathered from the best time waster of a site TVTropes. Let’s begin!
Trope #1: Agents Dating
This one self-explanatory. I have a thing for partners who learn how to trust each other and then ultimately fall in love. It is highly hated, and the basis for most television shows on the air right now, but nothing makes me happier.
TV Shows to Watch: Silk Stalking’s, Chuck, Scarecrow and Mrs. King and Castle
Trope #2: Aww…Look they really do love each other
Nothing makes me happier than a love/hate relationship. The couple that needs to have little fights to keep the marriage/relationship come alive. It isn’t particularly healthy or normal, but I enjoy watching it unfold. I like to think the couple is snarky in public and sweet in private. It is cute and personal, and I love to see it on my television screen.
TV Shows to Watch: The Pretender, The X-Files, All in the Family
Trope #3: Longing Look
Ah. The look. The look that two people who like each other share. Usually over some 80’s soft rock. Hard Habit to Break indeed! This trope is a favorite because it is the only time I’m ok with silence. A good actor can display a lot without words. When that happens, and you feel all of these emotions and understand where a couple stands. It is just so much fun to watch.
TV Shows to Watch: Veronica Mars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Call the Midwife
These are my three favorite tropes. The tropes that get me interested in any television show. Let me know what your favorite tropes are in the comments below! Don’t forget to check me out Twitter and tell me about your favorite tropes there.
Until next time, the randomness has ended. I hope you enjoyed!
