    I'll start:


    • Whenever a car comes to a stop, the brakes squeal (because viewers are too dumb to realize the car that wasn't really driving isn't fake-driving anymore)
    • Every character on every television who sits down at a computer has the advanced computing skills of an Anonymous hacker


    So, what burns your ass about tv shows? :munch:

    When someone on the phone gets hung up on, they immediately hear a dial tone. That don't happen in the real world.

    Oh and traffic cams on cop shows have brilliant resolution, full color and full motion. That FOX show, 24, was the WORST with that shit. The recapper on televisionWithoutPity.com started calling that shit "whatever technology." :jj:

    I don't know if it still happens, but as a kid it drove me nuts when cars would squeal out on a dirt road.

    Heh. Or when someone is driving in a car, they turn their head to engage in a conversation with their passenger and take their eyes off the road for like 20 seconds. :jj:

    Or while driving their hands are turning the wheel back and forth like they're driving through pylons.

    - Sitcoms where the audience has to hoot and holler when each character makes their initial entrance. Started with Happy Days. Married with Children was pretty bad as well. Two good shows, but annoying habits.

    - Anytime someone looks at something through binoculars, they show you the POV shot, and it always has the two round shapes. You don't get that when you look through binoculars. They do it in the movies as well...they think we're too stupid to be able to realize that the close up shot is the watchers POV unless they make it look that way.

    - Crime shows with tape/chalk outlines at murder scenes. They don't do that.

    - The "instant aging" of a baby. They bring in the baby as ratings start to go downhill, and they lead it up to the climax of a season. Then the baby ages 6 years over the summer. It's so fucking lame.

    That little bit of horseshit started on soap operas. They call it SORAS: soap opera, rapidly-aging syndrome.

    I stopped watching Days of Our Lives years ago, but got back into it when they added their first gay couple (these two young guys --very cute) and one of the characters enters a scene and he's like in his mid 30s but the dude's character was born in the mid-90s. :jj:

    Amused me how the technology in shows like CSI and 24 was miraculous in its speed and efficacy.

    The "lesson"

    Seinfeld refused to have a happy ending, hugging or some kind of learning/lesson at the end of each episode.

    When someone doesn't know how to drive they always alternate between the gas and the brake so the car is lurching/stopping.

    Knocking people unconscious is a perfectly surefire, safe and effective method of subduing them for a few moments.

    Cars ALWAYS explode when they wreck, and spectacularly, sometimes even in mid air.
