Wasn't there an artistic license on law for the episode "Redcorn Gambles with His Future"? That episode got Indian gaming law all wrong. There was a 1986 SCOTUS decision upholding the right of Indian tribes to offer gambling even in states where it's otherwise illegal due to treaties signed centuries ago that made red Americans sovereign on their land.

It doesn't seem completely accurate to include Dale in True Companions without some kind of mention that it usually only goes one way for him, especially relative to the other neighbours. Nancy even notes this in the episode where Dale becomes patriotic; Dale won't help his friend (Hank) when he is acting crazy for a couple days even though Hank and his friends were always there for Dale when he was acting crazy for years. That is also why Dale gets tied up and gagged in the Order of the Straight Arrow episode. Dale has his moments in solving crises, but more often his is causing them (eg, calling DHS on Hank, trying to electrocute Hank in a hot tub, leaving Hank behind at the border, etc). Dale is too cowardly and fickle to be dependable like True Companions are supposed to be; he is almost an inversion: a good friend who does like them his companions but will leave or betray them at the first sign of crisis.

Drop What You Are Doing was renamed to Dramatic Drop, but what we had here was a Zero-Context Example, so I can't tell if the trope was actually used, or if this was misuse based on the name. If anyone can provide context, they should feel free to re-add the trope under the new name.

Didn't there used to be a bunch of Reviews up? I know *I* wrote one, and there were a bunch before.

They probably got left behind when the page was namespaced. They seem to have been recovered. Is yours there now?
