When girls in movies are fighting other people and wearing high heels or simply running, if you notice the moment the fight starts or when they start running the heels become flat and then switch back like magic to high again.

When people take a bite of something, but don't actually CHEW the food----which means, they didn't really take a bite, they were just PRETENDING, to be eating. I HATE that!!

House MD kind of annoyed me. They didn't really do a great job of connecting everything and the ending to every episode was always the same. House sparks an idea and he's always right. It was good for the first four seasons but it shouldn't have been carried on for eight. So I guess what annoys me are characters who are supposed to be realistic but end up just being too smart.


If it annoyed you from the beginning of the fifth season, then why did you persist with it for another four? I would have given up watching it long before then if it turned out to be so disappointing. There must have been something about it that kept you watching, so it couldn't have been as bad as you imply here.

Pixels in poor quality shows, repetition mostly in infomercials...

Actually, I mentioned it in another thread a while back, but possibly my number one is writers telling us that a character has certain attributes or abilities, then showing us something totally different. My arch example of this one is Dexter, where we're told that Dexter is this cunning criminal, having been able to commit countless murders over the years under the very noses of the Miami police, but over the course of the show we see him repeatedly tailing people from close range with no disguise, brazenly breaking into people's houses in the middle of the day, again without so much as a ball cap and sunglasses, driving his own car to numerous crimes (with his GPS on, as seen in season 2), using his cell phone while committing crimes, and generally not behaving like a master criminal capable of escaping detection for so long. It would have been such an easy fix too, just have the guy change his clothes or pull on a hat and shades, switch his plates around, anything. Don't even get me started on keeping all that evidence of mass murder in his A/C unit...


Ugh. I hate these too! Another one is when Dexter is chasing someone in a vehicle, and the target never looks in the rear view mirror.

When people say "Lets split up!". Because why not? There's just a killer after you.
And it's a little bit annyoing that every time a german appears in a movie he's a nazi or they have a really bad accent. The same goes with russians who are always portrayed as the bad ones.
Or characters who are supposed to be autists who are just socially awkward nerds.

Long opening credits that don't bother to have anything playing in the background.
