This is a really great entry, it must have taken ages!

I wrote an entry called "Star Trek Cliches" which is just a bullet pointed list of all the cliches. It made me laugh, anyway, and I like that you've done the same thing. There are just so many plot devices that are used all the time. smiley - smiley Having said that, though, it must be very difficult to think of things that haven't been done already.
