TOP 10 THINGS ON TV THAT PISS ME OFF
1. THE CLIP SHOW
ie: cleverly disguised as your new 1/2 hour tv episode.. but is in fact, a series of dodgy flashbacks all edited into one..
2. THE 5 SECOND "WTF!!??" ADVERT
a very annoying (yet even more annoyingly effective) advertising tactic.. where, for the first 2 weeks or so.. they proceed to show you exceedingly obscure and pointless 5 second flashes of nonsense.. just enough to get you wondering.. "WOT DA FUCK IS WITH THAT??"
3. TV SHOW INTERRUPTUS
usually in the form of (a) a sports event (b) a war event (kind've the same thing), (c) election, (d) some lameass reality tv special (e) religious holidays.. which manage to cause your regularly scheduled program to be bumped until sometime next week, or next fortnight..
4. THE WEDDING EPISODE
enough to remind you that you seriously have NO LIFE for actually watchin' this crap..
5. A VERY SPECIAL EPISODE OF..
enough to make you wanna ring that advertised suicide hotline.. coz that sugary overloaded PSA bollocks makes ya wanna hang y'self rather than watch it..
6. THE TOURIST EPISODE..
your tv show decides to send all of it's characters on some improbable holiday to some foreign country.. and non-hilarity ensues.. (extra funny tho' if they visit Australia.. yet somehow get everything - the accents, the locations, the customs.. completely wrong..)
7. THE EVIL TWIN
it's been done SO MANY times in sci-fi it's not even worth living thru again... a main character gets cloned / discovers a twin / is replicated / mimic'd by evil demon / alien / spirit.. etc.. leading you to the predictable shootout, where both twins say "I'm the real one!!", "no.. I'M the real one!!".. always being resolved in the same 'ol tired way.. where the real character says something sacrifical.. along the lines of "NO.. SHOOT US BOTH!"..
8. WILL THEY? OR WONT THEY?
the endless sexual tension.. they drag on for season after season in countless tv shows.. if done well, it creates some added interest to the show and some interesting character development.. but, more than likely.. makes you wanna claw your own face off.. than put up with it..
9. THE MUSICAL
I don't care how you try and do it.. it NEVER WORKS!
10. TO BE CONTINUED...
vaguely annoying when it's continued next week.. liable to cause homicidal rage if it's continued next year..
yet it's still weird I choose to continue watching tv despite all this..
