Ah, tropes. They are the very thing that attracted you to that book in your hand – the story promise that you were seeking. So how and when do those beloved tropes slide into the much-despised cliché territory? 

In this episode Jess the editor hits on some of those distinctions, and Anne confesses the reason behind her love of K-drama before going slightly sideways into outlining her heartbreak over The Walking Dead decisions of later seasons.

Tracey then leads us into discussion about villains – both clichéd and not – that can work well equally, perhaps summoning He Who Must Not Be Named.
