Is there a specific term for characters who break the fourth wall because of No Social Skills? My guess is Beyond the Impossible.

I seem to recall a Simpsons episode where Kent Brockman was screaming about commercials planning to kill you. Then of course, real commercial break.

Buffy; in one of the college years episode she is having a weird, extended dream. The unreality is heightened by the geography being all wonky. One set leads directly to the other with no logic. This is how the sets are laid out in real life. I think 'Home Improvement' did a similar bit but as a joke.

Here's a fun activity to try: Gain Medium Awareness in real life. Complain about what the writers are making you, the main character, deal with today. Refer to what happened "in the last episode." Tell people to continue the conversation after the commercial break has ended. And so on.

It's really fun, I've done it before.
