Is it just me or are others getting a bit fed up with the rise in text messages being part of a TV drama?
My issue is that there aren't many dramas nowadays that do not involve someone reading a text message on their phone. You usually get a sight of it over a shoulder and in a split second it has gone! "What was that" my wife usually shouts and I have to rewind the program, stop it, get up and walk over to the TV and read it out loud. Luckily most of my TV programs have been pre-recorded.
For a while Holby City used to reproduce the phone screen larger at the side of the TV screen but that has stopped.
My TV isn't a small one and neither my wife nor I need glasses to watch TV. If the text message on the program is important to the plot it should be readable by ALL viewers.
Have you also noticed that whenever anyone calls someone on a Mobile it almost always involves leaving a message. No-one hardly ever answers in contrast to real life when a call has to be answered instantly especially when driving!
