It wasn’t just a perimeter, it was a “hard perimeter”.
When someone has a communication device in their ear, and have to reach up and touch it whenever they communicate with someone.
Well, they have to make sure we know they have a communication device in their ear!
Would you rather they wear a combadge on their chests?
When they make the lead characters in cop/FBI/spy dramas catch feelings for each other. I HATE THAT. And they do it just about EVERY time without fail. Even as recently as a NBC drama that I liked up until that very moment.
It is as if the writers have it in their contracts to force that **** on us. Like a male and female partner can NOT be just friends ever. ugggggghhhhh.
What triggered me is that this **** came outta NOWHERE.
Eff 'jump the shark'. That show Evel Knievel'd a f'n Megalodon!
Which NBC drama? Enquiring minds want to know.
Large crowd of tightly packed people (often angry and panicked), all straining to get to the front but nobody can move. Except, natch, the star, who manages to push his/her way forward through to the front.
The George Glass trope: someone makes up a story about someone/someplace, and when asked what their/its name is, they look around and make up a name based on things they see. (George Glass comes from The Brady Bunch.) A subtrope that is also overused: it turns out the person/place actually exists.
Car doors and sofa cushions can stop bullets. (Probably been mentioned 58 times already)
The main characters always wear a helmet with an opaque face shield when they ride a motorcycle.
I just saw a show in which characters in a gunfight hid behind a leaf-pile.
I hope it was intended as an ironic commentary on that kind of scene (the show was a semi-comedy, Two Weeks to Live).
Speaking of which, I've been rewatching DS9, and on one we watched last night someone called O'Brien and he just started speaking. I mean, what the hell?
That reminds me---how come no one on a show ever gets a phone call that's not relevant to the plot of the episode?
Well, to be fair, pretty much nothing happens that's not relevant to the plot of the episode...
I don't know if you're joking or not. If not, that's the nature of all drama and certainly all well-written drama. Characters don't go grocery shopping, or do their laundry, or search for parking spots, or engage in any of the normal mundanities of life, unless it is relevant to the plot or the character or the style of the work.
If you are joking, ignore this and sorry!
Whenever someone turns on a tv, it's right at the beginning of a news report about the events surrounding the plot of the episode.
Bonus points, if the police are looking for the main character and the tv shows a photo of the character just as they are standing in front of the tv.
I'm not joking. Yes, I understand that the phenomenon is ubiquitous---that doesn't make it less annoying...
For once I'd like a show where people behave more like real people...except I guess that the cops could still close almost all of their cases...
Yeah, I always thought one of the shortcomings of The Godfather was that there weren't near enough scenes of people sleeping, waiting in line, and using the toilet.
Hey, there was a toilet scene in The Godfather!
