@DeadlyNightshade:  Ooh! Fun thread! I notice these things too, but sadly I can’t remember any of the blatantly obvious ones! Too bad.

I’m not normally very critical of movies and TV shows, but sometimes they are just too obvious to ignore. I find action movies to be the worst offenders. My Darling Husband refuses to watch them with me because he says it ruins the movie when I point out the ridiculous inconsistencies 🙂

One of my pet peeves is computer hacking. In the most recent episode of Law and Order SVU, they have a hacker get access to a private network in less than a second (and I didn’t even hear him typing during that second…). come on! I don’t care who you are, it takes more than a split second to hack a network after being handed a computer!

I tried watching the new show Revolution but somehow the power being knocked out includes batteries? NO that makes NO sense.

I can’t think of anything in particular but I drive Darling Husband crazy because my thing is I’m willing to suspend disbelief but when movies/shows don’t follow internal logic it drives me crazy.

This isn’t a plot hole necessarily but we like to laugh at “internet” related stuff in movies too.  The best is when they illustrate the “internet” and it’s like a person flying around through a bunch of numbers and lasers…<<not the internet haha!

I don’t know if this counts, but I’m a mother and an M&Ms commercial kinda sticks out to me.

It’s the one where the Brown M&M is at a party, and guys think she doesn’t have her shell on. Then the other M&M comes and rips off his shell and starts dancing to “I’m Sexy and I Know It” (I’m not too sure if that is the title of the song)

I’m pretty strict on what shows/music my kids watch/listen.

Now my two year old refers to M&Ms as “its the sexy and I know it one”! OMG.

The guns always get me.  “Hey, there is no way that gun has that many rounds!”  “You can’t shoot that gun that way, it would rip your hand open.” “You cannot shoot into the water like that” “That gun still has the safety on!”

I used to date a huge gun collector and he got me started noticing those things.

OH! I know one now. This might be dated, but I’m a huge Fresh Prince of Bel Air fan. In the episode where they have an earthquake, Uncle Phil & Aunt Viv are stuck at Phil’s office, and the power is totally out. Phil and Viv have a nice, romantic moment, and Phil saunters over to the stereo, and turns it on. Magically, even though the power is out, the stereo system powers up and plays romantic music. (Not a battery operated small radio, either!)

Oh I finally saw Prometheus last night and the main character had abdominal surgery (trying not to spoil the plot) and spent the next 30 minutes of the movie running around! I don’t care how far in the future that movie is set that is not possible.

@LGenz:  EMP bursts will knock out any electronic including those that run on batteries.  The military tested them in Iraq.

**Quick reminder: I have NOT seen the new Grey’s Anatomy season yet! I have been getting the Fiance caught up on the last season.**

 

On Grey’s Anatomy, around the 7th or 8th season Lexi, Jackson, and April move into Meredith and Derek’s house with NO explanation. Hello, if Derek’s living there (1-2 mil per year salary) why do you need roommates? Lexi I understand. The rest, eh. That kind of pissed me off. Where the heck were Jackson and April living before?! On top of that, when did Alex move back in like it was nothing?

 

PS: Those EPT commercials kill me, especially the one where the woman is doing the fakest cry in the history of soap opera. I have to change the channel not to hear her weird laugh-sobs.
