I happened to catch an episode of a regional soap while I was eating dinner… I don’t usually watch soaps while I eat but today I just sat and decided to play along.
The char in the soap looked villanous and once they look villanous they almost certainly are the negative lead in the show… she had a gun to her hand and fired trice (or 4 times) and the next scene you hv another char collapsing to the ground with her hand clenched to her stomach… The weird thing was she had only one gun shot on her… I started hysterically laughing, I mean she must hv been a classic shot to hit the same spot trice… My dad watching this added ya this is how they get all the shooting gold in the commonwealth games. I was laughing so hard I could hardly eat.
The thing got better by the minute… The next sequence showed the culprit absconding and the female who was shot was now resting her head on her mom’s lap. The funny part here was there was a huge crowd of ppl around yet nobody called the ambulance or whatever… they just stood there doing guess what… “crying”. I was like wtf, she is not dead yet guys, hv you heard of a place called a hospital. The next scene the dad is there and he come just in time to say bye to his beloved daughter and he comes in a “car”(now i notice a bunch of cars including the one driven by the victim moments before are just a few feet away). The girl kicks the bucket and ppl go on about how unjust the world is…
I’m so amazed on how dumb the entertainment industry takes it audience to be… I mean there must be some decent writers out there who can spend 30 min thinking about if the sequence they just wrote is logical or not… I guess sadly the audience wont mind and the writers will get away writing more crap.
If you remember any sequences on tv that was this dumb or even worse drop in a comment… I can do with a dose of laughter now and then :P
