Ridiculously trivial things that irk you about tv or film

They will also both orgasm at the same time after a few pumps.

Or do I just suck at sex?


#122

Top Cat is a superhero?


#123

and theres no mess afterwards, just thats that


#124

When there’s a massive breakfast on the table waiting including a big stack of pancakes and a jug of orange juice but they just have a bite of toast and leave.


#125

love it in soaps when someone walks into a bar and orders a ‘2 pints please’

OF WHAT


#126

Bovril


#127

yeah nine songs is good, just about a couple who like going to gigs in 2007 (some very 2007 bands in there) and shagging, and thats about it


#128

I’ve watched the gig stuff quite a bit (BRMC, Elbow etc) but the shagging I think only once (on the DVD there’s an option to watch all the music back to back).

#131

“Remind me what we’re doing here…”

Line of Duty and Sherlock were particularly bad for this.


#136

Some films’ entire dialogue is made up of this.


#137

yes - this enrages me


#138

urrrggg Inception

so so shit


#139

Ah of course, I forgot “student repeats it back in laymans terms to make sure the viewer understands”


#140

I’ll give that a pass because at least a character who knows everything is giving information to a character who knows nothing, there is a reason for it happening and the mentor is often the best character.

Worse is when two characters who are supposed to have known each other forever tell each other things they both already know just to fill the audience in, especially when they mention their relationship in a way nobody would do “Look, I know you’re my brother and we’ve worked together for 15 years but…”
