Playing Plot-O

I love the House of Mystery's term, "playing Plot-O." It makes me think of a writer constructing a sickly new plot out of scenes remembered from other movies, books and comics. Not that this ever happens.

Or pulling story elements to a depressingly foreseeable conclusion so the fucking story can be over with and the writer can get paid. Not that I know anyone who would do that.

Or any act of structural hackery. "I haven't watched Lost since they started playing Plot-O."

Don't play Plot-O with my heart, Michael Scott and your gay co-worker!

Check out and for some Plot-O less potables.
