Yeah, I would add certain things and make fun of them in the process too. That's a nice way to go about it.

It's impossible to write anything that's never been written, but you can do it in an original way. I also think it's important not to try and sneak anything that's obviously overused past your audience like they're idiots. Call attention to it and self-deprecate a bit.

Default Overdone movie and TV tropes/Cliches

1. "It's a long shot but it just might work!" (It always does)

2. The way stupid teenage girls always walk towards a strange breathing sound in the darkness in horror/slasher movies, quaveringly enquiring "Hello? Is someone there?" Ever heard of safety in numbers, bitch? Move AWAY from the sound, not towards it, or at least turn a ****ing light on!

3. Baseball/Boxing episodes

4. Hostage episodes

5. Back/forward in time episodes

6. "24 hours previously" type episodes that originally start in the middle of a story

7. Geeks who save the day

8. Shy girls who turn out to be the belle of the ball

9. Character(s) who seem(s) dead but then come back later on

10. Twins

11. Moles in the organisation

12. "False" endings

Speaking of TV detectives... how about scenes where a detective goes into a bar or restaurant to talk to someone, they order drinks, they say a few words, the detective takes a single sip, they finish talking and the detective gets up and leaves almost a full drink behind without having another sip.

What is it with keyboards? You or I use a computer, you're going to be using the mouse mostly if you're using a program. But you see these so-called techno whizzes bashing away at a keyboard to, say, override a security protocol, and never once use the mouse. What are they using? An IBM XT???

And while we're on the subject of computers: enhancing video and zooming in? You know of any available program that can do that? Or clear up a grainy pixellated shot into a perfectly pristine picture?? The more you zoom in the worse the resolution gets, not the better!

You can control the whole computer pretty easily with keyboard commands.

It's actually taught to tech people too, since you might be in a situation where you are forced to try to fix a computer without being able to use a mouse.

Yeah but that's generally when you have no other choice. How many of us sit down and use the keyboard shortcuts when we can just use the mouse?
