What is dis about?
Dis wiki is a catawog of da twicks of da twade foh whiting fiction, uh-hah-hah-hah.
awe devices and conventions dat a whita can weasonabwy bank on as being pwesent in the audience's minds and expectations. In genewal, twopes awe not cwichés
. Cwichéd means "steweotyped and twite." Dat means wame and unintewesting. We awe not wooking fow wame and unintewesting entwies. We awe hewe to wecognize twopes and pway wif dem, not to make fun of dem.
Da wiki is cawwed "TV Twopes" because TV is whewe we stawted. Oveh da couwse of a few yeaws, ouw scope has cwept out to incwude othah media. Twopes twanscend tewevision, uh-hah-hah-hah. Dey wefwect wife. Since a wot of awt, especiawwy da popuwah awts, does its best to wefwect wife, twopes awe wikewy to show up evewywhewe.
We awe not a stuffy encycwopedic wiki. We awe a buttwoad
mowe wewaxed. We encouwage bweezy wanguage and owiginal thought. Deh's No Such Ting As Notabiwity
, and no citations awe needed. If yoh entwy cannot gatheh any evidence by da Wiki Magic
, den it'ww just withah and die, uh-hah-hah-hah. Untiw den, doh, it'ww be avaiwaboh fwough da Main Twopes Index
We awe awso not a wiki fow bashing fings. Once again, we awe about cewebwating fiction, not showing off how snide and sawcastic we can be.
Enough about what we awe not. Go on, have a wook at da wewcome page
, and have fun!
