Have you noticed?

Every new series on TV now comes with a disclaimer "Contains some violence and scenes of a sexual nature." followed by "Viewers of a sensitive nature might get upset".
All of em. Do we need this disclaimer every time like cookie warnings.

I believe that is because of a certain edition of the "Magic Roundabout" when

Zebedee said "It's time for bed" and that made Florence smile.....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Yes, you are right. And the music!!! Not just the programme itself but the trailers in between. My finger is constantly hovering over the mute button on the remote control.

When we returned from Spain last year I could not watch a whole evening of tv. The garish lighting and loud music was too much for my senses. i wonder if it is responsible for all the anxiety in the world?

Thanks Pat. I thought it was just me.
I hate much on ITV because of the flashing subliminal adds, previews, reality crap, etc. Although I do like their current affairs and late night news.
Films, dramas and series, to follow the dialogue I put subtitles on and reduce the volume. My wife who reads slowly but hears everything puts the volume up for the atmosphere. Can't win.

But I still feel we don't need constant reminders of graphic content, sexual action and flashing images. Although I realise they are warning for some people who are susceptible to seizures. But like allergies these people take care not to be affected.

I try to record commercial channels, while I watch BBC, so that I can fast forward through the adverts and other rubbish. The BBC is driving me nuts with its trailers for other progammes. Sometimes their trailers run for longer than the adverts on ITV!I remember a teacher who used to encourage us to debate (so that he could put his political views to us) telling us that advertising was the scourge of society. I remember his words quite frequently. At the time it was mainly toothpaste and soap powder ads etc. He maintained that we did not need adverts to drive us to buy things that were already catered for in our lives already. Ultimately, the ads made us unhappy and were, in his opinion. completely unnecessary. How much would all our goods cost if we were not paying for the advertising budget?

It also gets on my nerves the constant trailers on the BBC. Its a none commercial station so just get on with it!

However my biggest gripe and this is on all channels is the preview and "coming up". You have chosen to watch the bloody program so why do we have to have two minutes (sometimes more) of its contents which are often spoilers at the beginning and then before every advert on commercial TV! Drives me nuts that.
