Observations about film/tv

All actors, even those playing low life meth fiends, all of them have perfect teeth. White, even and complete.

No character in a tv show or movie ever says "goodbye" at the end of a phone conversation. They just hang up.

And only in ads will you see more "pretty" people than in the movies.

Interesting, hadn't noticed that. To show that the action is now completely "here"?

We get a lot of casino/slot parlor advertising around here, and everyone in the ads is young and good looking and they're all having fun and winning every time. The last time I was in a casino, the place was full of chain-smoking blue-haired old ladies with wheelchairs and oxygen tanks. I guess things have changed since then.
