Complaining: Viewers Are Goldfish get usage counts

Considering we already have Ad Break Double Take, Previously On and Recap Episode, is there anything left for this one?

There's expository dialogue where people discuss recent events on the show. (and similar forms of exposition.)
After purging some hyperbole and all caps, I think this one can be used for excessive recaps. Basically, if a given show recaps something three times in a single episode or recaps something that happened two minutes ago without said commercial break (or fade to black), then it's pushing on this trope.

It might need to be renamed, but I think the title should work.

Oh, and I purged ALL CAPS.

  • 1 Anything happened?
  • 2 Fridge Logic: A show needs some Padding, but wants to make it productive at the same time. This trope is a solution.

It seems the clean up of the description happened, are there any additional tropes to be split off still?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
