  • The Female Changeling shows in this dialogue from "What You Leave Behind" that she isn't inclined to pointlessly prolong the lives of her prisoners, thus giving them more chances to escape, by bringing them in for a final confrontation.
Broca: Shall I have them brought here?
Female Changeling: What for? (to Weyoun) Have them executed immediately.

Is this an example of being genre savvy:

On one episode of Judge Judy, a defendant (Danny Gonzales) was being a smartass. When Judge Judy tried to quiet him down he said, "This might be your show, but this is my episode"

To me this sounds more like Medium Awareness.

My example apparently would have fit with the old definition of "Genre Savvy" or also what is apparently the defunct "Dangerously Genre Savvy":

I still like the old. I'm not pleased.

Well, to be fair, your example never fit with the definition of Genre Savvy. Genre Savvy always meant "taught by fiction." It was just chronically misused as "savvy."

I tend to learn how to trope from observation rather than guidelines.

See, that's kind of the problem and why we had to more actively enforce the definition.

If it were everybody, nobody would've been doing it "wrong".
