Yeah, I was sitting on some of these for a while (hence the template structure). I'd like to get them all done. Tomorrow, Iíll come back and write a better introduction.
I'm not sure if we already have this one. It may be a part of one of the other Self-Deprecation
When an actor directs and/or writes an episode, their character happens to be particularly mistreated (rightly, or not).
- Dean got rightly called out for being ungrateful in a Supernatural season 6 episode directed by Jensen Ackles. He also grew more heartless and prone to stereotyping during seasons 6 and 7, which was followed up with in a season 7 episode directed by him.
- Marcy D'Arcy became more of a heartless conservative parody in several Married... with Children episodes directed by Amanda Bearse.
- Ross Gellar was flanderized into more of a loser in later seasons, while concurrently, David Schwimmer directed more episodes towards the end of Friends.
- In Red Dwarf, series VII, Kryten's actor wrote the episode with the tank in Jane Austen-land. He spends most of it deactivated, or playing another series 4000 mechanoid with severe functionality problems.
- The first episode of the fourth series of Maid Marion And Her Merry Men was written by the two guys who play Gary and Graeme, the guards. They end up sitting up to their waists in gunge for half the episode.
- Family Guy's Brian's voice is the exact same as Seth MacFarlane's, Brian's favourite drink is the same as Seth's, even after Seth's favourite drink changed, and Brian is in general an intelligent, classy, witty, guy. He is the default mouthpiece for the Author Filibuster as well. All that said, while most Author Avatars have a hard time doing anything wrong things seldom work out for Brian. He failed college twice, knocked up some girl, has immeasurable gratitude for Peter taking him in, but not immeasurable enough to keep him from drunkenly hitting on his wife, can't keep a girlfriend, can't write a book, and was even tricked into Republicanism by Rush Limbaugh.
- After the show was Un-Cancelled, people began to notice the Author Avatar nature, and Brian was called out for his negative traits by another Seth voice, Glen Quagmire.
