[JenBurdoo] Recognition

Postby JenBurdoo » Wed Mar 18, 2020 5:31 am

Something that its fans should not have known helped make a show popular. What was this, and how?

TV show? Gameshow? Theatre? Musical? Magic show? Did the fans know? If so, relevant how? Did they make a lucky guess? Did information leak?

popular toward the same fans?
Is it something embarrassing? Revealing something about the functioning of the show? Something behind scenes?
Are votes relevant during the show?

Did it reveal something about some person in the show? Does the show involve: dancing? singing? answering to questions? making offers? making bets? guessing the age? guessing in general? guessing the price? reality show ?talk show?

Was the show falsified? previously recorded relevantly? is playback relevant? Something that was spotted by fans? Something that was spotted during the tv show? In an episode? During more episodes? during replicas? Outside of the tv show (i.e. a scandal involving the presenter)?

Did it reveal something about some person in the show? With an ish. Does the show involve: dancing? singing? answering to questions? making offers? making bets? guessing the age? guessing in general? guessing the price? reality show ?talk show? No to the rest.

Was the show falsified? It is fiction. previously recorded relevantly? Yes. is playback relevant? Yes. Something that was spotted by fans? Yes. Something that was spotted during the tv show? Yes. In an episode? During more episodes? Every episode. during replicas? Outside of the tv show (i.e. a scandal involving the presenter)? It could have been an external scandal, but was not - or at least was never such as to shut down the show. It was not made public.

This was something that was visible on screen in every episode? Was it the case that more people watched in order to spot this thing? Did it get a revival in popularity after its initial airing, because this thing was spotted?

Did it have to do with a particular character? The actor portraying a character? A prop? A certain setting? Some part of the dialogue? A physical item that shouldn't be in the show?

Is the show animated? A period/historical piece? Fantasy? Sci-fi?

This was something that was visible on screen in every episode? It was present, yes. Was it the case that more people watched in order to spot this thing? Yes. Did it get a revival in popularity after its initial airing, because this thing was spotted? OTRT.

There is a relevant false assumption here, btw.


Did it have to do with a particular character? No, but relevant. The actor portraying a character? A prop? A certain setting? This. Some part of the dialogue? A physical item that shouldn't be in the show?

Is the show animated? No. A period/historical piece? This. Fantasy? Sci-fi?

Is the thing deliberate? A mistake? An Easter egg?

so is it something too modern for the time period of the plot's story? too old?

There is a relevant false assumption here, btw. --> was the something spotted a thing? an animal? a human being? a use? a tradition? a language? something intangible? More than a thing? is it a technological device? a phone? a pc? a clock? a digital clock? a car? musical instrument? a piece of clothing? medicines? an accent? the language? a use?

Are cultural elements relevant? apartheid? Second World War? KKK? Racism? religion? others?
Is the time period of the fiction. relevant? WWI?WWII? before? after? war time? Different periods? are flashbacks relevant? plot holes?

helped make a show popular --> would the show have been less popular without the fans spotting the something that they should not have known? Does it (the something) make the fiction not coherent? does it change the plot of the story? does it lead to another chapter of the story? Did it provide the inspiration for a sequel? a prequel? Does it contradict apparently something? Does it in fact contradict something? maybe It gave the opportunity to the authors to remake the fiction (and remove something)?

There is a relevant false assumption here, btw. --> was the something spotted a thing? an animal? a human being? a use? Thisish. a tradition? a language? something intangible? Thisish. More than a thing? is it a technological device? a phone? a pc? a clock? a digital clock? a car? musical instrument? Related. a piece of clothing? medicines? an accent? the language? a use? None of the rest.

Are cultural elements relevant? Yes. apartheid? Second World War? KKK? Racism? religion? others? Others. Continue thinking along these lines.
Is the time period of the fiction. relevant? Yes. WWI?WWII? before? This. after? war time? Different periods? are flashbacks relevant? plot holes? No to the rest.

Does it contradict apparently something? Does it in fact contradict something? maybe It gave the opportunity to the authors to remake the fiction (and remove something)? No to all.
