Ridiculously trivial things that irk you about tv or film


#221

lots of people Tony and little Tom have known have died in fires


#222

Didn’t Darren’s dad have a kid with Mandy’s sister (the one who died of cancer)?


#223

Dawn, yeah. Edit: step sister I guess as she is a richardson


#224

Imagine still watching Hollyoaks!


#225

quality programme that I enjoy very much


#226

Explains a lot.


#227

Must have changed a lot since it was one of the worst programmes in the history of television, then.


#228

Such as?


#229

Do you watch soaps though? Are you confusing ‘worst programme on television’ with ‘not to my taste’


#230

Two words: “Last Jedi”. You could have said ‘it’s not to my taste’ and saved yourself a load of time.


#231

Don’t think that is comparable, I was never dismissive of people liking it, never did the ‘imagine liking the last Jedi’ thing like as if there is one definite rating of a film that happens to be mine, in fact I was just explaining at great length why it ‘was not to my taste’ in the context the saga being very much to my taste, because it seems people often aren’t happy to just say they liked it they have to put down others for not liking it (something you are again doing here with ‘imagine liking hollyoaks’), I thought it was important to challenge some of those assumptions, people who are open to the new angles of the last Jedi aren’t superior to those who wanted something more familiar, why don’t people just like or not like what they like instead of using things to put others down


#232

Buffet & Spike sex scenes are the only good sex scenes


#233

Because my mum watches Coronation Street, I’ve taken to saying stuff like “That Pat Phelan, up to his old tricks again” about anyone who even so much as resembles a villain. I just did it now with Pennywise from ‘It’. This probably irks my parents


#234

Also when I fart and then say “cracking surround sound in this house, dad”


#235

I’m going to use that one on Clive. Thanks.


#236

there’s a disclaimer on some sky atlantic shows that goes ‘this programme contrains strong and frequent language’

frequent language?!


#237

I thought this was going to be a silent movie!


#238

God damn they’ve said “penguin” a lot.


#239

tbf i think his alcoholism comes up repeatedly over the years which is good, but he did get over the aul crack pretty sharpish from what i remember


#240

edit: never mind
