<light hearted>

"See Ferrer is going for it"
"Oh. Nice"
*sharp intake of breath followed by sloooow exhale*
"It's like a ninja with a samurai!"
"Come on Nishikori"

"Unbelievable... This is unbelievable"
"HAHA!" *claps hands*
"Nishikori, I believe in you"



I don't get into sport so maybe this is why I find it so irritating.

I do this too, but to movies. If I disagree with something I'm seeing I rant at the screen and have been known to shake my finger at the offending character. I also occasionally shout encouragements, or helpful hints (he's hiding in the cupboard you daft thing, you'll get killed in a minute. Run for it... etc). The idiots never listen to me.
DH has given up trying to understand this. grin

ermm, I meant movies we watch at home obviously, I do try hard to bite my tongue in the theatre.

Warn him now! Make him stop! I shout at the television when the football is on and when I went to an actual match I shouted something less than complimentary to the oppositions goalkeeper and somebody asked me if I had Tourette's sad

My husband likes to offer non-stop comments and performance tips to the players when he watches football. It does my head in.

'Come on, cover the back. That's it- don't let him get through. Oh for God's sake [player x]- what the hell was that? Pass it to [player y]. Come on, he's waiting for it. What on earth was that?' That carries on non-stop, without a pause for breath, for ninety minutes.

I have reminded him that no one can hear him except me, and I'm not on the pitch. Makes no difference.

I'm guilty of this, nothing like venting to the tv

YANBU at all. My DH does this too, it drives me mad!

Glad it's not just me! Sometimes makes me jump out of my skin as he claps his hands like a dopey seal and then booms "HAHAAAAA! COME ONNNN!" Who the fuck does he think he is? Lleyton Hewitt?

Well I have been known to yell "Oh, ffs come OOOOOOON!!!!" at horror film scene where intended victim is perfectly safe in the house, hears a noise, and then runs off straight into conveniently close dark you would, of course.

So I can't fault your DH, sorry. These people need telling! grin

I shout at the TV when a show is being illogical, or uses Hollywood science.

I'm now banned from watching certain shows blush

My dh shouts advice to sports people on the Tv about sports he knows nothing about. It drives me crazy! I don't think I'd mind so much if he knew anything at all about what was happening smile

MIL did that. She was convinced that however important the dialogue was to understanding the programme we all wanted to know her opinion of the costumes (she loved costume dramas) and also which actor looked a bit like which of the people she used to work with decades earlier that none of us had ever met . . .
