Web Video The Nostalgia Chick Discussion

I've been thinking that since Lindsay's phased out the Nostalgia Chick line and seems to be continuing to make videos under her own name, there should probably be a split off for a new page for just "Lindsay Ellis", shouldn't there?

is it possible to change the name of the page altogether?

I was just thinking that since Lindsay's trying to distance herself from the Nostalgia Chick brand and do her own thing under her name, it would make just more sense to split it than rename everything.

Like, keep this Nostalgia Chick page as its own thing for its own work, and form a new page for Lindsay Ellis that's more specifically about her self-titled things (Loose Canon, The Whole Plate, her various uncategorized film essays etc.) and transfer appropriate entires into that, similar to Doug Walker's page and Nostalgia Critic.

I was coming here to say this, and I never participate in TV Tropes discussions. Seconding the above comment, and hope this happens sooner rather than later.

Can we get a better picture of Ms. Ellis for the page?

The resolution is all blurry... There are much better pictures out there to use... For example, her Blip icon.

Changed. I'll come up with a better caption later.

So should Elisa's new series be counted here? The credits say it's part of Team N Chick and Lindsay's playing the Chick at the end so...

Is it really necessary to have two separate lists? Team NChick's sketches nearly always mirror the movie in some way, people have put tropes in the wrong place and I see no reason why discussed tropes might be somewhat lesser than the show tropes. I don't want to cause trouble so I'll wait a few days before merging and making the folders smaller.

As long as you do make the folders smaller, I wouldn't mind that. The first point especially is a good one.
12:16:52 PM Jul 26th 2011
I'm alright with that too. I might be dumb but it gets confusing.
04:17:22 AM Jul 27th 2011
I'll be good for that option too.
03:24:03 AM Jul 28th 2011
(Forgot my password.) Nice turnout, I'll get started.

Under "Did Not Do The Research" it says"

◦"'I sold my soul for a vagina and a man I don't know!' Guess she didn't notice that Ariel wanted to be human long before Eric and her father's tantrum was what spurned her on, then."

But is that really a case of not doing the research? Yes, Ariel wanted to be human long before seeing Eric, but she didn't sell her voice to be human then. Eric was what she really sold her voice for, so it seems like the Chick still makes a good point.

I do like that movie, but it seems to be a case of she has a different view so She Panned It Now She Sucks. I'd say delete.

Would a character sheet be a good idea? I know it would mostly be Chick and Nella, but there are quite a few characterization tropes here.
03:03:43 PM Jan 25th 2011
Might be fun. As well as the Chick and Nella, there's:
  • Dr. Block, Nella's "mad" scientist alter ego.
  • Elisa as "herself"
    • Dr. Tease
    • The Makeover Fairy
  • Lord MacGuffin
  • Brian The Sexual Predator
  • Tammy, apparently a real-ish case of Remember the New Guy.
  • The Dish-Doing-Coffee-Making-Sentient-Robot-Sex-Slave.

...And all the tropes they display.

I've got to go fairly soon, but I'll start making a move on it.

Edit: Did the Chick. Now I'm off to bed.
04:05:55 PM Jan 25th 2011
You "did"? That's an real Ascended Fangirl.
03:35:27 AM Jan 26th 2011
Heh, if that was the case I don't think I'd be leaving her to go to bed. :P
10:57:08 AM Jan 22nd 2011
Is there seriously need for stuff like:

When it's not really what her show provides examples of? Just what she thinks of charcters and plot elements?
11:27:53 AM Jan 22nd 2011
Maybe it's not, but The Nostalgia Critic, The Spoony Experiment, even Atop the Fourth Wall I think, have the same thing.
04:47:08 AM Jan 23rd 2011
I think they are all examples of Conversed Tropes, and thus legitimate examples.
09:29:02 AM Jan 26th 2011
No, the are not. She doesn't discuss the in detail, she doesn't even mention them by name.

Fangirl and The Chick could use a bit more detail and maybe quotes, but the others are fine. And not every entry on The Nostalgia Critic is exactly detailed or trope-named either.

Edit: Kay then, will you be doing the same to Critic, Spoony and Linkara's pages?

Well, this just got nuked for being "Not the Trope."

  • Stuffed into the Fridge: Referenced by Team N Chick in Inside the N Chick Labs by describing many things that are NOT the trope (Indiana Jones surviving an explosion inside a fridge, etc.)

Yes, it is. Here's the part I'm talking about:

  • Brian:How about that part in the new Indiana Jones movie where they hide in the refrigerator?
  • Nella: No.
  • Elisa: How about that part in Jurassic Park where they hide in the refrigerator?
  • Nella: Can we please get back on topic here?
  • Brian: What about the episode of Punky Brewster where the girl goes in the refrigerator and then they have to give her CPR?....am I the only one who remembers that?

I'm going to try and spell this out for you people.

  • Lindsay reads TV Tropes, uses tropespeak
  • Lindsay is a feminist, self-admittedly and by evidence of reviews, blog, etc. Not only that, but some community criticism of her is because of this.
  • Stuffed into the Fridge is an infamously hated plot device among most feminists. There is a popular blog called Women in Refrigerators that deals specifically with the use of the trope.
  • Inside the N-Chick Labs was a veritable minefield of Foreshadowing, Red Herrings, Breaking the Fourth Wall, and community Shout Outs. Refrigerators get mentioned three times for no reason. Lindsay is literally stuffed into a fridge in X-men, while averting the trope.

It's not important, but does anyone have a more recent pic we can use? She's changed her look since then, after all.
10:55:13 AM Oct 17th 2010
Maybe we could take it to Image Pickin?
10:07:06 AM Nov 14th 2011
We could use the profile image from Blip.tv... It's very tasteful and well done.

Hell, I think we should use everyone's Blip images as their pics here...

It's also from the abortion documentary though, which isn't a part of the Chick's character. Standing by her sexbot is perfect.
