Follow TV Tropes
Question: This trope is sufficiently common to list aversions? I noted some averted examples in the Western Animation folder.
When i questioned in the "is this an example" thread and the only answer was "Only in Television does Can't Get Away with Nuthin' even approach being omnipresent, and even there there are broad swaths of programing where it doesn't apply so no it does not make any sense to list aversions."
Double negative. If you can't get away with nothing, that means that you can get away with something.
Also, Tropes Are Tools, and this is written in a very Tropes Are Bad sort of way.
Not sure the Charmed example quite counts. Whoever added it clearly left out the fact that Phoebe is being burnt at the stake because she killed a man with her powers. The Aesop that the sisters give at the end "once you break the small rules, it's only a matter of time before the big ones are next" is actually quite valid.
