Hey TAY! I'm nabbing TAYnami from Pikathulu tonight since he's out of town. I'm not going to lie, I couldn't really figure out the general format for this, so I'll just make my own.

Here's what's showing on Toonami tonight, according to their website. Remember that all times are in EDT.

Feel free to discuss the shows down below in the discussion section or head over to the IRC channel. I'm fairly certain there will be some people over there watching Toonami, as well.

If you didn't notice the Youtube video I posted, it was basically about really dumb clichés. Things like villains turning into family members or people being left behind turning into major villains seem like they're popping up too much. Honestly, ever since I saw this clip, I was never able to take stories where you discovered that one of the main antagonists was a relative seriously.

And that's where the question comes from for tonight, TAYers. Are there any clichés that totally take you out of your immersion when you're watching an anime, playing a game, or watching a movie? What are they, and (hard mode) do you remember what made it begin to feel clichéd?

As a side note, don't forget that we're playing Gears of War tonight. If you don't have a 360, Floridian Admin and Birthday Boy I_Kluge is working on a Cards Against Humanity room for us to donk around in.

Also, be sure to check out some of TAY's fantastic features, such as:
