That's a cool scenario. There's a lot of "annotation inheritance" 
problems here though. E.g., an episode should probably inherit all 
annotations of individual scenes, a series should aggregate all 
annotations of individual episodes, etc. - of course, then many problems 
with inconsistencies arise. A lot of work but certainly worth it :-).

Extracting the Tropes hierarchy was my main goal when starting DBTropes 
since Skipforward can make good use of proper feature hierarchies. 
Unfortunately, this is much more complicated to extract than other TV 
Tropes information - wiki pages listing tropes and wiki categories 
grouping tropes are there but they are less consistently structured than 
normal Trope/Item pages and there is quite some noise. Investigating 
this more thoroughly is the next todo on my list :-).
