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

I use subtitles if watching something at night and hubby is sleeping, but I cannot stand signing and will miss the programme rather than put up with signing.

it annoys me as well, but it would help if actors did not mumble as much nowadays. sick of having to put the sound up and down because of the mumbling then pointlrss background music.

I have to admit that I also hate sub titles.
I find they are a real distraction....so I don't watch stuff with subtitles.

I must admit I watch a lot of foreign films and use the subtitles I think after a while you get used to reading them and watching the film....

Re: TV/Film complaint

The sound level changes is one of the reasons that we generally always record what we want to watch, then when we watch it later I skip through the adverts so we don't have to put up with the difference.

Some programs are so quiet (even with both my hearing aids) that we have to turn the TV up full.
I'm considering getting a bluetooth transmitter for it and Ill sit there with my bluetooth headphones on, I can also ignore everyone else then

Re: TV/Film complaint

My hearing is quite acute for an old bird(himself says I can hear a cockroach trump) so the disparity in sound levels between films and adverts is very annoying.
It seems to be more noticeable on the channel that shows all the old black and white films(or maybe it is because that is the channel that is most used in our house...not MY choice).
