• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

If you watch movies long enough, you may come to a realization: Hollywood has really only filmed one chase scene, and they've simply been reusing it over and over again for years.

Okay maybe that's not entirely true, but you know what we're getting at. Like many well-established components of fiction, the chase scene is one that is often comprised of familiar elements which serve their function to add coolness, funniness, or other desired effects.

Cool Cars will be featured often. Also expect Television Geography to take the Scenic Route, since the scene is usually edited together to be dramatically compelling, not physically possible.
