I am giving up my lunch hour to hit up Live-Action TV
because I've noticed it exploding in the last few days. Same questions as before, and there are a lot
of shows I haven't watched on here. A lot
of these characters were cut because they have no entry of them as The Scrappy
, so that seems to suggest a lot of people are still having trouble distinguishing a character with a lot of screentime from a Creator's Pet
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
: ...I'm going to be a bad Trekkie and admit I did not watch Deep Space Nine
so I cannot comment on Vic Fontaine. Did he get Character Shilling
? He seems to fit every other criteria, though he has no The Scrappy
entry so I pulled him over that.
Supernatural: There doesn't seem to be anything suggesting in that entry that she got unreasonable Character Focus
or Character Shilling
, and the natter suggests she was Executive Meddling
and not actually included due to writerly love. Can anyone elucidate?
Voyager: ...someone seriously included something that wasn't a character. That is all. Also I didn't watch Voyager, but did Neelix get any shilling?
Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined)
: Oh yea, I have not seen any of this show, but neither of its characters listed are on The Scrappy
, but the entry on Dualla would seem to be a misplaced Scrappy entry.
: Not one of them has a The Scrappy
: Was there any Character Shilling
? Otherwise, she's just The Scrappy
: Okay. I realize a lot of adults despise
Elmo and he does have a The Scrappy
entry. However...Elmo is really
popular with the shows target audience of preschoolers, and his increased presence was in response to children responding well to the character and buying his merchandise by the truckload. It seems to be missing a proper fan backlash outside of adults who are a Periphery Fanbase
at best. I'm leaving his entry on the page with reservations for now, but I'd like some feedback.
: No The Scrappy
entry. The entry itself just reads like a straight up The Scrappy
Lana Lang: Is pretty much the patron saint of this trope next to Wesley Crusher, but I cut down the length of it because it went well past documenting the problem and flew off into complaining. Aside from that, this is probably one of the better examples of how entries on these pages should go.
Andromeda: Haven't seen it, but the entry points out that the character in question is
the main character. He also had no Scrappy entry.
Drake & Josh
: Didn't watch the show, but she appears to be a main character with no shilling, just a Karma Houdini
with a big Hatedom.
Charmed: Way too brief on Phoebe and I haven't watched the show so I can't comment beyond what's in the entry.
: Had no Scrappies or genuine reasons for including the characters.
Buffy: ...please don't kill me, I really didn't watch a lot of Buffy past season 3 and I'm just going off the entries. I know
Dawn was really loathed, though her entry here doesn't seem to justify her getting included - did she get shilled? The Kennedy entry appears to meet the criteria, though again, not seeing the Shilling.
The L Word
: Justified her as a scrappy, but not much else. Haven't watched the show.
Greys: Don't watch it. Izzie seems to count, might need some additional info. Meredith can't count since by virtue of being the title character
, she's not capable of unreasonable Character Focus
. Also, not a scrappy.
: Not scrappies.
I had to stop due to time constraints, but I'll be back if nobody else wants to tackle it.
