Introductory sentence uses Weasel Words.
Bringing this up from Fun for Some's introductory paragraph:
But perhaps there's something hypnotic about watching the weather forecast on a perpetual loop, or maybe that educational short film has aged badly and picked up some Narm along the way.
I don't know if the trope is being used correctly in that context.

I think it is: replace "Narm" with "unintentional hilarity" in that sentence and it reads the same. And while educational films aren't necessarily going for drama in the narrative sense, they are meant to be taken seriously.
Bringing up the following examples from Cardcaptor Sakura:
First one is a weird nitpick, second one is general, neither are actually funny. Cut

Sounds like a general example
Seconded. It sounds too general imo.
EDIT:I'd say that's misuse.

Bringing up the following example from Stargirl (2020):
It's unclear from the given context if that's meant to be taken dramatically. If it's not, you can cut it.
Yeah, it sounds like a not serious moment.
Crusher Crock in general is a very comedic character, and his completely serious concern for the hero's physical health and fitness is part of his character. He's very much an overly caring coach and dad while also being an incredibly dangerous killer.
If something is "cringe comedy" it's not really Narm.
Bringing up the following example from The Death of Superman:
I'm not sure "woman cries over the corpse of her husband" is what I would call goofy, visible tears and blackish blood aside.
This seems like one of the classic targets of Narm-"shows of emotion the OP thinks are too much".
