This has been bugging me more and more recently. Conversations are always so 'perfect', to the point that it becomes distracting. Everyone knows everyone else's exact train of thought, can continually interject and finish their sentences perfectly with nobody speaking over anybody else, there are no stutters or stumbling over words, no um-ing or ah-ing...just these completely unnatural sounding reels of dialogue that ebb and flow perfectly with everyone in a choreographed manner.

I know that in reality that's what it is, but if you're trying to portray a realistic scene, it just has the opposite effect and makes it unrealistic. It's even more noticeable in scenes with long conversations between multiple characters. I'd like to see what it would be like if they just tried to make it slightly more natural sounding.
.

Some types of programmes are much worse for it, to the point where it completely puts me off. Usually the same sort of programmes where everyone is absurdly good looking, with full make up, hair styling and complete wardrobes that might as well still have all the tags attached.


Every single CW show then.

Also how scientists and doctors in films and TV know everything about every branch of science/medicine.

If i was PM right now, i'd introduce a nationwide ban on portrait phone footage being used on TV.

Either film your gooseberry fool in landscape, or not at all!

That's not a growth wrote:You mean the "add 20% to the ex vat", rather than "remove 20% from the inc VAT price" conversation?

Yes

I generally only add VAT mind you. I.e. I add 20%. x * 1.2.

Sometimes I prefer to learn or re-learn by looking at how to do things wrong to deduce the correct way. I.e. the empirical process.

Plus it's funny

I still think phone cameras should just be designed to capture a square frame and then "orientation" is just a simple post capture option of choosing which part of the frame you want to show.

eBay still continually turning on "Best Offer" after a few days. If I wanted it on, I'd turn it on! It's even more annoying when your listing is already at rock bottom prices. I mean what do they expect me to do, send it for free?

I've heard great things about Warminster.

One of our biggest attractions is the barbers, and they're closed because of lockdown.

At least this season has given us Heidi. I'm still laughing at Ru hating her name.
