dramatic palm slice I found.
Every time I see this trope in action I have to roll my eyes. Seriously, it's almost as bad as the girl hearing a noise in a horror movie and then going all alone in the dark to investigate. I wish writers and directors would have some more sense and slice the actors arm or leg instead of the palm. It seems more realistic. We have been working our way through all the seasons of Supernatural (I'm so a Dean fan) on Netflix and they did the dramatic palm slice in almost every other episode it seems (I may be exaggerating a little, but not much.) However, it's like the director could read my thoughts, because just when I thought I couldn't take a single more dramatic palm slice, Dean slices his arm! Porter and I couldn't believe it. And since then, most of the slicing of flesh have been other places other than the palm. Hopefully other writers and directors will take note and stop this silly trope. So now when you watch a fantasy show that has the dramatic palm slice in it, you can think of me, rolling my eyes and ranting about how silly it is.
