fan service


Also found in: Wikipedia.

fan service

The act (by writers, creative directors, etc.) of attempting to please the fans of a work of fiction (typically a TV show) by depicting or incorporating certain aspects or character pairings that fans have promoted, requested, or shown interest in. With all the callbacks to the previous 199 episodes, and allusions to the interests of the show's rabid fan base, the musical episode of "Supernatural" is total fan service—and I love it.
