Cluster Name Bomb
When characters' names are overused in the first few episodes of a show, to familiarize the viewer with them.
So you've just tuned into a new show in the middle of its run. You decide it's cool, and you want to go back and watch some early episodes. Cue dialogue similar to this:
- Alice: Bob, come here and help me put up this poster!Bob: Sure thing, Alice! Just a second!Alice: All right, Bob. Hey, Bob, grab the tape while you're over there.
Examples:Anime and Manga Film Live Action TV
- The Bob Newhart Show: The frequent mentions of Bob's name became a drinking game.
