[[caption-width-right:330:Coming to beat you up at a theater near you!]]

There are at least two kinds of TV viewers: the group that goes to the refrigerator during the fight scenes, and the group that describes the episode's plot as "[[BlahBlahBlah Blah, blah, blah,]] ''Fight Scene!'', blah, blah, blah."

If you are going to have fight scenes, the trick is to write the thing in such a way that both groups are entertained. If you decide to leave out the "Blah, Blah, Blah" part, see ChopSockey.
