Pilot School

Pilot School. A nice collection of teevee show pilot scripts. Observe the embryonic state of many of the classics of the past few decades, including Buffy, The Wire, Hill Street Blues, Battlestar Galactica, The Sopranos and The West Wing. [more inside]

TV Tropes Wiki

A wiki cataloging common cliches in anime, tv shows, and webcomics, amoungst other things. Looking for a Wikipedia even more chock full of pop culture cruft? Ever wanted to know what the heck that thing that goes DOINK in an anime was? Wanna see a complete archetypal breakdown of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Wish to better understand the sorting algorithm of evil? All these tropes and more can be found within!

TV good, movies bad?

TV shows that are better than the original movies. I don't agree with everything here (I liked Highlander!), but it's an interesting list. I agree with Buffy definitely.
