I Write Letters

Dear TeeVee show directors,

When you have two characters in a car talking, the driver still needs to watch the road. Even as s/he addresses the person in the passenger seat. Seriously, it is ridiculous when the driver (usually a man) gazes with oblique intensity as he delivers his monologue while the car hurtles forward smoothly--no tire-squeals, no horn-blares, no crashes, no citations for running red lights.

Come on.

Bones and Dexter, I'm looking at you.

Yeah, I know, Suspension of Disbelief and all. But Suspension of Physics? I think not.

Carry on,
