The Most Annoying Sounds On TV
On 06 April 2015
I have to admit, when I first started writing this article I was going to make a Top with the most annoying sounds on TV. The problem is, I can’t decide which one gets to win the crown and which ones are considered bearable sounds. Well, truth be told, if you really like the show, but one of the character’s voices makes you want to cover your years with screwdrivers, then you have two options: you either get over it and accept that annoying sound as part of the show’s charm (but not without complaining about it all over the web), or you stop watching it.
Even though this could turn into a really long list, I’ve only selected some of the most ... let’s call them “memorable” sounds on TV, in some of the most popular TV Series.
Laughter Sound played in the background
Ok, we get it; someone said something sarcastic, remotely funny or even hilarious. Do we really need to hear that laughter sound every 2 seconds? Maybe some of us just feel the need to smile, nod – as a sign of “OK, I get it, good one” or burst out laughing and spitting chips all over the floor. Point is, hearing that sound all the time kind of kills the purpose of a good joke. If the producers and writers think of their show as a comedy, then let the audience be the judge of that and stop forcing us into laughing. It’s not always funny!
Gloria from Modern Family
I am literally in love with this woman. I admire her for the way she looks and I really like her accent. She’s from Columbia, so it’s natural to have some kind of accent, and if you ever spoke with someone whos native language is not English then you have to admit that you’ve also liked it, or at least you thought it was interesting. Don’t get me wrong, I love this show, but I just wish that I didn’t have to turn down the volume when Gloria is mad or is calling “Jaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!”. But, just like I said above, this is part of the Modern Family’s charm.
Janice from Friends
“Oh My God!” is all I can say when I think about her. Actually, that’s how she started a sentence every time she appeared on the show. And yes, we get it, it was supposed to be annoying, that’s why no one in the show liked her, but “Oh My God!” it really made me want to punch the TV. On that happy note, here is a crazy compilation of all Janice’s “Oh My God” moments. Let’s see if you can watch it till the end. I dare you!
Howard’s Mother from The Big Bang Theory
Even though we’ve never actually seen her, we can never complain that we didn’t hear her. I’m sure that every Big Bang Theory fan has an image in his head with how Howard’s mother might look like. At least, I know I do. All we know about her is that she’s really fat, probably one of the reasons why she is so loud. This show has me thinking that a big woman can create sounds you can hear even if you’re hiding on the top of a mountain. Even though she has “minor” flaws, I imagine her as a strong woman, who raised her child by herself, but continues to treat him as a baby. Here’s a sneak peak to one of Big Bang Theory’s episodes that involves Howard’s mother, Bernadette and of course Howard.
