    I get frustrated when, after paying for satellite tv plus all the extra channels, I can't find a single thing I haven't already seen, seen too many times already, or never did and never will want to see. And I want to know why the year the movie was made is sometimes noted, most times not. And who writes the descriptions?
    I want to put my foot through one of my sets if a description turns out to have been misleading or if it doesn't say anything at all. And have any of you noticed the bad typing and spelling going on in the captions running beneath? E-Entertainment has to be the winner when it comes to bad typing trying to describe, very poorly, the upcoming event.
    And I'd rather know the date the movie came out than have the "description space" taken up with....the names of the two or three stars someone thinks is most important and then REPEAT the names of the same stars in the roles they are playing as they the roles the are playing are mentioned in the description.

    I want to punch the screen when that commercial for an alternative birth control comes on, and some dippy 20-something complains that she can't remember to take a pill every day. People like that should just sign up for voluntary sterilization because parenting takes a bit more effort than remembering to take a pill with lunch.

    ... Whenever I see those commercials for diet drugs like Propelene et al that promise weight loss with no exercise. :rolleyes I guess that sells better than telling people that you have to exercise and eat less to lose weight. Those commercials are always followed by a Burger King ad (that king head is way creepy) or Jack in the Box or some other hideous fatty food.
    I also want to throw something at the TV when I hear the news anchors using bad grammar or mis-pronouncing words. I know that not everyone uses perfect grammar and that's fine but if you're on TV disseminating information to the public, I think you should be held to a higher standard. I once heard a news anchor say "kinniegarden" and "nucular" in one half hour broadcast. My head almost flew off!

    I HATE the new mcdonald's commercial where there is a young girl with lipstick who (supposedly) has sesame seeds on her lips and she licks them off, but there is actually one in the space between her lips....yeah, like she'd really be eating one of those sandwiches!

    ....Ryan Seacrest gets a star on the walk of fame and they dedicate 1/2 an AI show to it

    ..... Arrested Development might be at risk of going off the air, but Life on a Stick is on air

    About six months ago I actually posted a comment about how W says "nuCUlar" and asked if it bothers anyone else and several people said they weren't snobby enough to correct someone's grammar, especially the president (or words to that effect). Whatever. I don't correct bad grammar, but I still think some people should be held to a higher standard, particularly the president, since he has his finger on the button. He should at least be able to pronounce it. JMHO, of course

    Ditto to both of those.

    I feel the same way, Critical. I am a W supporter, but everytime he says nuculear I want to scream.
