Thumbs down TV/Film complaint

Am I the only person to get really, really, really annoyed by TV programmes and films being ruined (for me) by background music drowning out speech.

No you aren't, a plinky plonking piano building to a crescendo of irrelevent noise often ruins the enjoyment of whatever the subject may be.

Plus, as my hearing worsens with age I tend to up the volume in a vain attempt to hear what the hell is being said, then we go to the adverts which because I have increased the sound are suddenly shouting at me with a force of decibels that would make a smoke alarm sound like a whisper!

A mad panic ensues to find the remote and mute the thing before it knocks the pictures off my wall.

put the subtitles on...that way you miss none of the dialogue and only a fraction of the picture.

(though I hate the sub titles being on and will not watch TV if they ARE on...I go off and do something different)

Don't want subtitles they are a distraction though not as bad as that woman that comes on in some programmes waving her arms & pulling funny faces whilst blocking half the picture.

Yes I agree Less.
My other half knew nothing about subtitles until daughter showed him them....for weeks he had the things on....even though he is only selectively deaf.

And yes, the signing is a pain too....won't watch anything with either subtitles or sign language
Less likes this.
