Um, I\'m pretty sure The Stranger is absurdist and not existentialist. Camus was actually against both existentialism and nihilism, so there would be no reason why this novel would be an example of existentialist literature.
to:
Meursault isn\\\'t an anti-nihilist, either. Although he is saying that human life will eventually end and that we should seek our own meaning in life, he isn\\\'t altruistic or virtuous. He\\\'d be closer to an Übermensch, especially since one of the tenets of absurdism is to reject hope, and fight against despair, knowing all the while that you will inevitably be crushed by the Absurdity of the universe.

Also:
\\\"One of the defining works of Existentialism, and deeply satirical.\\\"

Camus was not a supporter of the existentialist movement. He merely created absurdism, which was an idea that Søren Kierkegaard had hinted at while working on existentialism. Quoted from wikipedia (people will likely criticize me for using this as a source, but c\\\'est la vie):

\\\'Acceptance of the Absurd: a solution in which one accepts the Absurd and continues to live in spite of it. Camus endorsed this solution, believing that by accepting the Absurd, one can achieve absolute freedom, and that by recognizing no religious or other moral constraints and by revolting against the Absurd while simultaneously accepting it as unstoppable, one could possibly be content from the personal meaning constructed in the process. Kierkegaard, on the other hand, regarded this solution as \\\"demoniac madness\\\": \\\"He rages most of all at the thought that eternity might get it into its head to take his misery from him!\\\"[6]\\\'

tl;dr: Camus and his works=/=Existentialism

MrDeath, you\\\'re the one who should check the trope description. It says nothing about \\\"hiding the material\\\", which is pretty much the summary of your argument. What it says is this:\\\\\\\\
\\\"Sometimes you notice something that is so shockingly, inappropriately out of place, you\\\'re left wondering \\\"How did they get away with that?\\\" Surely, someone — be it a producer, an oversight board or other Radar Systems — would have said \\\"You\\\'ve crossed the line!\\\"
Getting Crap Past the Radar refers to instances when a writer, artist or other creator place inappropriate content inside their material that that it is \\\'\\\'\\\'shocking not only to the Media Watchdogs and Moral Guardians, but to everyone else\\\'\\\'\\\'. Often, what makes it shocking is not the specific content, but that it is out of keeping with its context. As such, most examples are found in materials aimed at children or shows alleging to be family-friendly (i.e., G or PG-rated).\\\"\\\\\\\\
While the show never shyed away from showing killing, it mostly did keep to BloodlessCarnage. So these two instances are breaking from the context, by their sheer brutality, so they\\\'re instances of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.
If you don\\\'t respond, or can\\\'t rebuff my argument, I\\\'ll readd the example.
