What annoys or niggles you about tv be it actors, filming techniches, formats, plots, cliches etc.

One that's just happened is and EPG trying to give some mystique but it failing miserably.

On Canada's coast, Freddie navigates a bear-infested forest and has an unexpectedly close encounter with a sea lion. But will he spot the killer whales he came to see?
So what happens when the programme starts?
Hi, I'm Freddie Flintoff - cuts to a shot of him with killer whales swimming besides the boat. :-/

Continuity announcers talking/shouting over end credits, especially when the end credit is part of a music documentary, and the specially-composed end credit music forms part of the show.

opening credits continuing into the programme for like 10 minutes , sometimes more . I'll be trying to follow the story but every few seconds another Producer's name comes up , again and again .

The American format of recapping every 5 minutes what we have just seen and showing what is coming up.

This was spoofed by Mitchell & Webb in the Gift Shop Sketch:

Longer and longer ad breaks. ITV hours are really only about 44-45 minutes.

I like the idea of that show just being an hour of Freddie not seeing any killer whales, finishing with him looking into camera going "Where are all the killer whales?" as a chorus line of them passes in the background.

The seemingly increased volume inbetween programs.

Just watching a doc on Discovery and everytime they do a pan shot is has some sort of distorted lens technique.
Concave or convex - can't remember which is which, but it's very annoying.

Trailers that are shown over and over
All background music.
The cult of the presenter / comedian as all round front-person in preference to real experts

I was watching Brush Strokes on Drama the other day and the continuity announcer was telling us what was coming next while Jacko was still talking!

Presenters walk walk walking up and down all through the programme. Don't they realize how surplus they are? that the subject-matter is far more important?

Americanisation.

"David Cameron told this programme....."

Spoilers, next week on "insert series name here", followed by extracts from next weeks show!

More spoilers, watching a show you are looking forward to only to be shown scenes from that very show before it starts properly!

Americanisation, all Americanisation! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

People on quiz shows who say they know the answer, and then tell us what it isn't before telling us what it is.

"Well I know it's not Tin because my Mum uses tin foil, and it's not Chile because I went there last year, so my answer is B. Cantaloupe."

all those- look up- fold arms- serious expression at the camera shots you get introducing the drivers on F1 or the "stars" of some reality shows...( makes them look like complete prats to me)

Making celebrities out of no marks like Katie Price and Amy Childs who can't act, sing, tell jokes or make documentaries.

There is an announcer on BBC. His name is Delroy Haines.
The way he speaks with an up and down inflection, and pauses in the wrong places REALLY aggravates me.
I have to mute the TV every time I hear him start to speak.
He gets on my threepenny bits BIG TIME.

When you are watching one show and with about 15 minutes left a small box comes up and it advertises another programme and shows a little footage of characters of what may happen etc.

I saw Simon Cowell on my TV on 12th April. That is the first time I have seen him on my TV in 2014. You must have a different TV to the rest of us.

I'm just about to watch Corrie when the announcer says "Now in Corrie Steve goes on the rampage and murders Liz and Michelle". Shut the f up, I can see for myself what's going to happen in the next 25 minutes.

Also documentaries where the presenter says "I want to find out...." Don't give an s what you want to find out, just get on with it. And also documentaries (stand up Channel 4) where after each ad break they spend five minutes going over what they showed pre ad break.
