dragonchild: That's because with the exception of a few Darwin awards, we don't have entire swaths of society "learning" about violence from action movies. As you say, a light blow to the head wakes up most people who aren't retarded, but most of the world never actually uses a Unix interface.
The Voice of Doom: One could argue that they were doing the IP version of a 555 telephone number.
DeathByGeekSquad: Big Bang Theory - no self-respecting geek owns an Alienware computer. Fark off with your product placement and attempts at Geek Branding.
PainInTheASP: Things that bug me about TV, #2966:How come every video game on TV sounds like the Atari 2600 version of Pac Man?
LikeALeafOnTheWind: Computer ignorance sure does make a useful plot device.
Fano: Jim_Callahan: whistlerdash: Their entire thought process is "no one watching will know the difference so who cares".Alternately, "fark it, it looks good and keeps the plot rolling".I mean, anyone that's ever been in even a schoolyard fight knows that if you go down after being cracked over the head with a heavy object, you're not getting up without brain damage if you get up at all. But we don't have monthly threads that are collections of video clips of TV knockouts biatching about the lack of concussions and accidental death.It's theater, man, it's not supposed to be a literal display of what is ostensibly going on.//Personally, my favorite variant of this silliness is movie chemistry and explosions.There are definite acceptable breaks from reality (new window) but for video games it always drives me nuts when they talk about "high scores" and "levels" when that sort of thing hasn't been important in decades in games.

ManateeGag: RivenSilver: Last week's BBT annoyed the shiat out of me too -- they were all playing SWTOR on laptops WITHOUT MICE.I don't know. it might be possible if you set up enough hot keys. or you are REALLY good with that touch pad thing.
Lernaeus: Do NONE of the editors or VFX people speak up? Or is the thought, "meh, I'm getting paid ..."?
thecpt: I walked in on a Glee line that made me cringe, girl said she was trolling in an internet forum to find information. Lurking and trolling are apparently the same thing to kids/idiots.
