Post Tropes
Here is a mind-bogglingly comprehensive listing of tropes appearing in TV & other media. For example, here's a listing of the links to all the works discussed that they classify as Science Fiction, here's the page for Heinlein, and here's the one for Starship Troopers.

Each trope name is a link to its explanation. Within the explanation are links to related tropes. Text following the trope name explains (if necessary) its application in the show/film/book. Spoiler text is invisible until you click and drag over it to review white text on pale blue background. It's really a pretty amazing site.

Elsewhere I have written:

"I predict that in some future time, the labyrinthine discourse of TV Tropes will replace all other forms of entertainment. People will be fully occupied simply reading, and occasionally writing, entertaining discussions of enertainment."

No, no, Bill, you have to deliver that Criswell style: "IIIIIIIIIIII pre-DICT! That..." etc. Much more effective.

In the end, I found Heinlein is finite. Thus, finite analysis is needed.
