The problem with limiting it to "in-universe examples" and moving straight examples to Troper Tales
is that this is primarily a Criticism Trope
. Just saying... So I don't think that'd work.
A straight example should be pretty widely acclaimed as Love it Or Hate it, in the sense that the majority of critics would agree you either love it or hate it, and the show gets polarizing reactions from the audience.
This trope is basically the inverse of So Okay, It's Average
A consensus example would be, say, Dancer in the Dark
(which led me to this page).
I suggest moving anything that is not pretty consensus to a YMMV
page. How's that for a solution?
Examples so moved could be debated in the discussion page if someone feels they are consensus. If it's impossible to decide which examples are clearly YMMV then there'd be no basis for saying the page is getting out of hand, so I think this is workable.
