  • 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.

Lindsay Ellis. On the right.


Lindsay Ellis is the host of The Nostalgia Chick Show. Her videos talk about the themes surrounding the movie moreso than the movie itself, which stems from Lindsay's bachelor's degree in film criticism. There's been a few story arcs too, those of which can be summed up in three tropes: Foe Yay,[1] The Dog Bites Back [2] and Stalker with a Crush.[3]

Her blog is here, her official Facebook is here and her Twitter is here. A list of reviewed works (which also includes the shows by Lindsay's friends Elisa and Nella) is here.


This show provides and discusses examples of

  1. The Chick breaks out of the Girl Show Ghetto to review whatever she likes, leading to a power struggle with The Nostalgia Critic.
  2. Much-abused sidekick Nella is taken over by a Super-Powered Evil Side and wreaks vengeance in a form of the X-Men "Dark Phoenix Saga" (This is also where the character of the Nostalgia Chick really consolidates).
  3. Reality Subtext leads to the Chick developing an obsessive crush on Todd in the Shadows and going to great lengths to try and make him love her (while he remains fixated on Obscurus Lupa).
