MacGyver tropes

pepper: MacGyver, having an idea (Mac idea)
Okay, so I'm having fun playing with my tropes list as regards MacGyver. Several of them don't fit the genre (bodyswap, for example), but there are some that you wouldn't expect, but which they actually did do. Mac is so cracky.

So, I'll remove the blanks, unless anyone can think of eps where they were done, and I've added in some tropes that fit more with the show (ex-girlfriend, bounty hunters, save the orphanage, old friend introduced just to be killed, Indiana Jones, unexpected progeny).

ETA: I've now deleted a few tropes, although I'll happily reactivate them if anyone can think of episodes that fit (even if it takes a bit of pushing and pulling): angry!sex, aphrodisiacs, baby farm, genderswap, Groundhog Day, telepathic soulbonding, truth or dare, turned into cavemen, turned into animals, and werewolves mate for life.

Oh, and definite spoilers for any and all eps below.

Feel free to offer any suggestions of episodes that fit, or tropes that should be on the list... )

pepper: Is it safe to come out yet? (Safe to come out yet?)
No, brain. No. NO. I have to write Mac pr0n, and get Teal'c into a bar with Travis from B7. It's not use you jumping up and down and excitedly telling me that 'I Think We're Alone Now' by Tiffany or Tommy James & the Shondells (or even Girls Aloud) would make the perfect starting point for a mini!OTP fic (one following Fragile Balance, where Jack's team have been mini-me'd, too, and they're all at high school together). I'M NOT LISTENING. NO. NOT EVEN IF THEY'RE MAKING OUT UNDER THE BLEACHERS. NO.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I've read the bleachers thing, so you're not even original.

ETA: ARGH! Sneak attack by one of the tropes!

Will x-post to LJ when I get home. Damn, I need to upload my stupid!cute icon to DW.


This felt familiar. )



50 Top Tropes

I've tidied up and alphabetised the cliché list (OCD much?), tweaked, changed, and clarified some things, and added a few things I thought were missing, to bulk it up to a nice, round 50. Is it wrong that my aim is to do everything on this list at least once?

Also, I think this should be rebranded as tropes, rather than clichés, because it has a less negative connotation. IMO. I mean, yes, often they are clichés, but I've also seen them done well and interestingly. Or amusingly crackish. *g*

Tropes, dammit. Tropes! )
