I don't think that any of those episodes fit. "Avatar Day" provides a backstory for Kyoshi, foreshadows Suki's return and Kyoshi killing Chin is discussed in the grand finale.
"Nightmares and Daydreams" is justified by being All Just a Dream and "The Ember Island Players" provides some Character Devellopment for Aang. The entry itself says they stay true to characters and to the Avatar universe.
Would the "Slice of Life" episode of Friendship is Magic qualify? It has most of the fanon background pony personalities becoming canon, revelation that Bon Bon is a secret agent, THOUSANDS of meme references, and Gummy's strange inner monologue.
Does "Lesson Zero" from MLP really count? Because ponies turning crazy already happened before and the episode does have one turn in the series (The other mane 6 start writing letters for Celestia and not just Twilight).
Uh...whoops. I think I accidentally deleted half of the page. Um...can you guys fix this?
There's something wrong with the page title and I have no idea how to fix it. The actual page name in the URL is B Izarro, not Bizarro, and the page title is "B Izarro" - does anyone know how to sort that out?
EDIT: Guess it autoformatted the first one to a link. But the URL is one word, not broken into two. Whatever, it still needs a fix.
It's an issue with the Google search - it screws the capitalization of titles up. We don't have a fix for it, really.
Really nice to see how far this page has come along. When I made it a few years ago it was pretty rough, but it looks like you guys have refined it a lot.
I don't think that this image quite fits this page. It's just a picture of a red-headed bird child.
Might want to offer that up in Image Picking, there.
Regarding the quote, Yu-Gi-Oh The Abridged Series bleeps out its strong language, right?
Seems so, from a Google search. Aren't 100% sure though.
Just thinking that it's not technically bowdlerising or whatever with the original asterisks if the quote is actually obscured in the original context.
Okay, took out a bunch of things (mostly from the movie section) that seem to fit better in What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? or Widget Series (leaving them here in case I made a mistake, since I'm not familiar with all of them):
My friends and I coined the term "Elephant Episode" to refer to this trope at least a decade back when Utena first came out on DVD. We saw the Curry Episode and were just... "Huh?" Since then, any episode wildly out of continuity or character has been refered to as an Elphant Episode.
How can a movie be a BLAM Episode? I guess if it's a long-running series of movies? (For example, I could see calling Moonraker a BLAM Episode for James Bond movies? But it's not listed currently.)
But most of the movies listed are just one-offs. It seems to be the entire Film section, with very few exceptions (maaaybe the Star Wars Holiday Special) should be either moved somewhere, or deleted from this trope.
I think one-off or full series examples go under What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?.
Is it just me, or is the "Love & Monsters" example just railing against the episode rather than an example of the trope?
No, I'd say its fair.
Is "The Naked Now" REALLY a BLAM episode? It's a TNG callback to the TOS episode "The Naked Time."
I think it doesn't qualify.
Looking at the Trek examples, most of them aren't BLAM, just kind of crappy.
"Big Lipped Alligator Moment Episode?"
More like "Big Lipped Alligator Moment" Episode. As in, "the episode that is entirely a Big Lipped Alligator Moment."
