TWQ: Film & TV Irritants

There are always things about a film or TV programme. TWQ (the Weekend Question) invites you to share your opinions.

Can you name some things in as film or TV programme that annoy you? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

* The obvious 'product placements' that are scattered throughout. The characters might as well stop through their lines and say "Why don't you buy these?"

* The loud adverts that happen. The makers claim this is not so. Who do they think they are kidding?

* The programmes or films where every other word is a profanity by every character, as if they are clones. Not everyone talks likes this, no matter what the director may say.

* Obvious 'token' races put in to establish a quota. Put people in because they are best suited.

Now it's over to you....

Yeah I have to agree on all of that.
I do like the "spoof" films where it's obvious and it's funny.
Yeah them films where they swear a lot sometimes are funny, but it does get boring.
They do need ones where swearing isn't featured and it's not a kids film.

Oh god I hate it when commercials are at least 50% louder than the program!

Susan said...

I hate that some of the channels put on trailers for other programs constantly.

I feel that I've already seen, and got fed up with the program before it's on.

It really puts me off watching the new program.

The staggering number of commercials between segments.

Also, the ovewhelming themes of despair and darkness in film. As if we all really need reminders of "the end times"- so to speak.

Linda said...

The fact that it used to be a two-minute commercial break and now it's close to five minutes of the most inane and annoying adverts ever! Add on the fact that they're so much louder and that really frosts my pumpkin!

I don't like ridiculous laugh-tracks either, like we aren't supposed to know when something is funny? Please!

it really bugs me when they come back from a commercial and show half the last scene before getting on with the show...OMG just start where it left off.
But then the show would be half as long and they couldn't get in as many comercials in the first place.

Happy beginning of the week Jean Luc
