Honestly, the cocking of weapons is a dramatic flair that I've come to accept. I never roll out without one in the chamber, but it is dramatic and cool looking."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

#2 Bothers me, #10 a bit too.
The others I just kinda accept or don't care about. Yes, I know a frag grenade is more like a tile-covered firecracker than a room full of gasoline vapor, but I get to see big 'splosions!

What's your opinion on documentaries or documentary-style television shows?

Well, Cops is the most obvious example. I was watching this one show about an undercover cop in a skinheads gang too, but I don't remember the program it was under.
Essentially, shows that are meant to be interpreted as non-fiction, with footage of interviews and LEOs in action, etc. Do you think they are portrayed well or not?

My thoughts on those usually center around wondering if the officers on them are acting they way they would (and sometimes should) normally act because the cameras are rolling.

Dude we have COPS riding with us and it is really annoying at the moment
I was backing my partner who had COPS with them and i ninja'd up on him and scared the camera man. So he was like can you walk back to your car and close your door and come back up so i can properly intro you.
Lastnight my partner and I got into a scrap with a kid and afterwards he was screaming and yelling bleeding all of the place and my partner walks up and says hey they want like a summary of what hapend so act like you are putting your hobble away and ill walk up to you and start talking with you....

They just want some footage that makes the replay "make sense" to a watcher. If they ever told a cop to do something against policy, safety or the law I would hope the Cop would tell them to go **** themselves.

"OK, bravo, we're going in" *click clack*.
"Excuse me, miss. Miss? Is everything alright in there?" *click clack*
"What up, Q-dot?". "Yo, what up, man" *click clack*.
Interestingly, "racking your slide" sounds like a euphemism for masturbation.
I think I'll go rack my slide right now.
Also, it's worth pointing out that everything those CSI's on CSI say make them look like idiots. Like when they stand around discussing some remarkably simple process at length ... something that real scientists/ninjas would never do because it's so fucking obvious.Originally Posted by Goju - joe

And another thing why is it ALWAYS dark at every crime scene?? Because then they get to use a fancy little flashlight. Turn on the goddamn lights!
..then there are the visible laser beams on the trajectory kits. Some shows are getting better at "dusting" the beam but others still make people believe that lasers are always visible as solid beams.
Yeah yeah I know :pancakebu
