* Spy thriller, eh? You'll need to look at some [[GunsAndGunplayTropes weapons]]: I suggest either CoolGuns or RareGuns, but maybe RevolversAreJustBetter... and let's not forget some backup, like RazorFloss. Then you'll need equipment: a GrapplingHookPistol, a ShoePhone....

* I'm not saying ''AmericanIdol'' is necessarily ''bad'' (and in fact I do enjoy it!), but if you want to avoid [[strike:{{Filleritis}}]] {{Filler}}, give it an objective look to see (1) what the audience really wants to see and (2) all the many things they don't care about that you could easily cut out of the program.
