* NeverFoundTheBody: Truman's reason for holding out hope that his father is still alive. More subtly, it could be to keep Truman from ever getting closure, thus keeping him traumatized and afraid of water.

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: The show is so iconic that its many fans, some of whom have grown up watching Truman, are unbothered by its implications. Truman himself has been lead to believe that the world beyond cozy Seahaven is far more dangerous than it is, which arguably backfires by desensitizing him to the idea that, for instance, flying constitutes a near-suicidal hazard (look at how unhesitatingly he attempts to book a flight despite the scary posters on prominent display in the travel agency).

* AndThenWhat: Truman's entire life has been a lie. His parents are actors. His teachers were actors. The insurance company he worked for was fake. The customers were all actors. His friends and classmates were all actors. On top of all that, effectively an entire country's population was devoted to the "show" that was Truman's "reality." [[InferredHolocaust One can bet things are not going to go well for any of them after the credits roll.]]



** A lot of the actors on the show aren't actually that great at their 'parts'. The extras passing through flub their lines, the regulars are only mediocre in their emotional displays with Truman, and for a reality show, they're absolutely ''terrible'' at improvising and all too often have their lines fed directly to them.
