First off: I like this trope. A lot. The basic trope seems to be "the viewer holds characters on-screen accountable for information that's only available to the viewer." That's a great Audience Reaction
trope, and yet the page isn't thriving. Four examples. Two of the four examples are just plain Genre Blindness
(most of the Horror movie one is Genre Blindness
, and all of the Juno one, since Juno actually does see pretty much everything the audience does, the difference being she's a 16 year old girl). Nine wicks, only five of which are actually articles.
I think part of the reason is the tremendously generic name. Viewer Myopia
really could mean almost any kind of myopic response, and certainly sounds synonymous to Fan Myopia
. I think a rename and then some crosswicking could do this a lot of good, as well as clean up the description (since it sort of rambles to make its point).
