Annoying things they do in TV shows

  1. I have a friend who worked in TV who I guess has picked up this habit over the years and it is so annoying ddd. I'll be like, is the story over and we're doing talking or...?

  2. Can't think of any examples right now, but when someone says a line of dialogue that by itself doesn't really make sense/comes off as unnatural/isn't something that character would say, and only serves as a way to set up another character's witty comeback.

  3. So all of Tina Fey and Amy Sherman-Palladino’s writing.

  4. I've grown massively allergic to the overblown thud of punches and kicks in fight scenes. Or like... somebody swinging a sword or knife and it still makes that metallic "ZING" noise. IT'S NOT COLLIDING WITH ANYTHING.

    I really hope at some point they'll be considered as old and dated as sitcom laughing tracks.

  6. The “white saviour” trope: white main character (usually either a detective or a doctor, often British) moves to a country populated predominantly by POC, turns out to be highly gifted and magically solves all of the cases/cures all of the patients while all of the POC characters are mainly there to assist. It surprises me that there hasn’t been a bigger backlash with these things?
  7. White saviour trope (and also the "magical negro" trope) tends to be commented more when it's a film that wins awards. My guess is that it's a trope so normalised into pop-culture that people don't even see it when it's on screen.
  8. Someone arrives at a prison for visitation. They say hi, hug, sit down, utter about 4 sentences about the upcoming court date and a bell goes, a guard shouts: "Visitation is over!"

  9. Prisoner Cell Block H in every visiting scene! It'd wind me up so much - they just got there and spent 90 seconds together and their time is up!!!
