There is always something to complain about on TV. Whether it’s cheesy romance, unrealistic action or just plain stupidity, it’s good to get it out of the system. As a fan of TV and someone intelligent enough to spot out everything stupid, I feel obliged to inform my readers.
Today I pose a question: what is your biggest pet peeve on TV?
Maybe you don’t know the answer to this question yet and so you need to think about it. If you love TV as much as I do you might be glad to know that deciding what you don’t like about TV and complaining about it has the potential to reach abroad and effect television in the future forever. What do I mean by this?
I mean that if you can spot a trope that is so stupid and complain about it enough, say on a YouTube video or a blog of your own, it can catch on and other people might start complaining about it too. If enough of this happens there’s a good chance that someone in the power to fix this stupid trope in TV may agree with you and eventually your actions result in a real change. Isn’t that cool?
This works even better if you write into the television station and get your family to write in too. TV is my passion and I want to see it grow and prosper, and so while some people write to politicians complaining about oil spills I complain about stupid tropes and why they should be replaced with sensible solutions and I can’t begin to comprehend the effect my complaining has had on TV over the years.
Perhaps you do know what your pet peeve is. Maybe you’re tired of seeing dirty clothes on medieval peasants or slick leather suits on action girls who know how to fight like I am. Why can’t a girl who knows how to fight dress like any other girl? Why do they always have to wear black leather? Faugh, good question!
So think about this and share your pet peeve in the comments below. Together with our complaining powers we may be able to do something about it!
