What Do You Want To See Less Of On TV?
If there’s one thing that this week’s season premieres taught me, it’s that I’m sick and tired of shows being meta. But what other trends are popping up a little too much? What should we beg for a ban on?
Maybe I’m just overly sensitive, but I couldn’t help but notice that both Chuck and Community had moments of “This isn’t a TV show – It’s real life!” during their season premieres this week that… well, just annoyed, because they were so self-consciously unrealistic. It made me think that there’s a lot of odd repetition so far in this year’s television: Both Bones and Castle had the lead couples meet up awkwardly after some time apart, and between the aforementioned Chuck, the just-finished Covert Affairs and the brand new Undercovers, any itch I’ve had for “spying is just like real life, honest!” metaphors has been scratched away entirely. But enough about me: what kind of television familiarity could you do with less of? Spill all in the comments below.
