->''"Why in the name of Harlan Williams are there so many Chronicles these days? You've got ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', ''The Chronicles of Riddick'', ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Chronicles'', ''WesternAnimation/RoughnecksStarshipTroopersChronicles'', why aren't there any Dan Green Chronicles?"''
-->-- '''DanGreen''', ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''

Sometimes, nothing better describes a show than the full name of the main character with a noun before or after, maybe a preposition thrown in there.
