Follow TV Tropes
Hey i was just wondering, remember when the evil gay British guy (sorry, can't remember his name) told Michael and his other minion that people's hearts sync up to their pulse. is that true? i checked on google and found one unconvincing answer. it just sounded really, really neat and i'd love to know if that bit of trivia is true or not.
What's with Michael's goofy new hair? It's a cheap wig, right? Really makes him look ridiculous!
Moved the whole section for Hey Its That Guy over here so that they can be pegged into the proper trope. Hey Its That Guy is when you recognize and actor's face from other roles, but he's not famous enough to be remembered by name. As in "Hey, the cabbie — it's that guy who was the priest on <other show>!" Virtually all of these are too well known to be "that guys". Some are Role Association, some are probably You Might Remember Me from.... And some are simply that actors take lots of different roles during their careers.
What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic? - Carla, meet Karla.
Seems more like a Shout-Out. But i don't know which it is, because unlike the writer of the line seems to think, not everyone knows who Karla is in le Carrés books.
It seems there's an ever-multiplying series of JustifyingEdits involving Word of God. They're cute anecdotes, but is there any other place we could put them other than on the main trope page? The Trivia page, possibly?
Matt Nix does mini-commentaries for each episode, where he often remarks on the tropes they are using and why they are using them. So long as the "blurb" is relevant and not actual "Justifying Edits" there isn't any real problem with listing them.
Should we have a character page, at least for Michael, Sam, Fi, Maddie, Jesse, and Larry?
There seem to be a lot of tropes that apply to those six.
If you want to start it, go right ahead.
The but not too white trope for Gabrielle Anwar seems a little off, or maybe I just don't like this trope in general. I mean she's part Persian, and English not Irish. I am sure there are a few Iranian immigrants in Ireland too. There are also the Rominchels. Gypsies who have lived in Britian and Ireland for centuries, they look very white for gypsies but tend to have big noses and be slightly tanner than the average English or Irish. There are also the "black Irish" they are descendents of survivors of the Spanish Armada that was sunk by the English, they tend to have darker hair and a slight tan. I assume they picked her cuz they thought she was a good actor and were right. Not because she was white but not too white. Perhaps they should have picked a real Irish person that would be a legitimate critique. I wish she had more of an accent. I don't buy she had one in episode one and magically unlearned it by episode 2. I think she just didn't want to spend the next few years of her life faking an Irish accent after no doubt overcoming an English one lol. I am not sure that pale white women are an oppressed or under-represented group so maybe thats part of my objection too.
Anyone else notice that the title looks like "Bum Notice" on a Tivo?
I know there has been a lot of switching of the page pictures around the wiki, but here I feel that it looks better on the left. The reason is that when the picture is on the right it kind of interrupts the text, there isn't a clean ending line on the right side and having the picture mix with that just doesn't look all that good.
In re the Wham Episode entry, where nobody knows if Season 4 will bring permanent changes:
This troper thinks it won't. After all, given that Word of God is that episodes have to be filmed in Miami due to the way the production company is set up, Failure Is the Only Option.
Oh, I would bet money that you're right. The show has made it abundantly clear that it operates by a very strict formula. Individual details vary, but every season, in fact, every episode, features Michael doing favors for/attempting to discern the identities and/or motives of some boss figure while he supports himself by saving poor schlubs.
He'll spend the first half of the fourth season working for Management while trying to figure out what Frasier's dad is trying to do. And, as always, the crucial goings-on will happen in Miami.
There's a good chance of him "leaving" Miami at the show's conclusion, I think, though for reasons mentioned above it would probably still be filmed there. Personally I hope it's a good long while before that happens

How well does it match the trope?
