Added DiffLines:

* The iconic ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' {{kaiju}} Red King is ''not'' red, but a yellow-blue mix. The real reason for his name was that he was originally intended to be the BigBad in a prototype of the series called ''Redman'', and the name ended up sticking when he was recycled as a recurring MonsterOfTheWeek.

* ''Series/{{Psychoville}}'' is set all across England, and not in any specific town. The name is, in fact, derived from the title given to foreign releases of ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', which ''is'' set in a specific town, and is not about a league, nor are many of the characters particularly gentlemanly. The title actually refers to the writers.
