TV Tropes wiki's entry on Lupin III
« on: August 29, 2008, 02:51:55 pm »
I stumbled across this awesome wiki while -- what else -- Google-researching some random bit of trivia or other related to Our Boy. As the site wranglers explain on the front page, tropes are not cliches, and tropes are not bad -- tropes are recurring bits of business (plot, character archetypes, etc.) that, when used right, resonate with the audience and give the story juice.

The main entry on Lupin, like most of this site's show entries, includes an extensive cross-linked list of all the tropes that happen in the franchise -- I hit a bunch of them and found them not only highly perceptive but a lot of fun to read:

Actually, the specific thing that brought me to this site was that I was watching "Island of Assasins" again, and started wondering just who the heck started the infamous "red wire/blue wire" bomb-defusing dilemma bit ... and not only did the TV Tropes wiki have a nice big entry:

... but they namecheck "Assasins" (under its alternate title "In Memory of the Walther P-38") as an example of the trope.

Man, I friggin' love TVTropes.
I've added some Lupin examples to the wiki myself.  Heck, I'm there right now.
