Time to Push the WRONG Buzzer Button

Time to Push the WRONG Buzzer Button
Do you ever latch on to lines from movies or TV shows, etc. and think to yourself: That is so wrong!

You wish there was a WRONG button with a buzzer for you to push so that you could hit it several times because you so adamantly disagree.

The words so upset you that you wonder and worry if other viewers heard the same words and believed them. The spoken or written word has the power to persuade the masses. You don't dare overlook or ignore the words because we all know that the pen is mightier than the sword.

♦ ♦ ♦

Here is a quote that made me want to push the WRONG buzzer button:

There are some things that are more important than love. ~ The words of King Uther's spirit, The Adventures of Merlin.

I do so believe in the power of love. I found those words very disconcerting. Surely, nobody agrees with Uther. Thank goodness he's a fictional character. Surely everyone in the whole wide world knows that there is nothing in this world that is more important or greater than love.

♦ ♦ ♦

Be they fictional works or nonfiction writings by philosophers or scientists, etc., can you recall a line or quote from a script for a movie or TV show, or even words from a book, etc. that you passionately disagreed with?

No need to supply the reason (such as , the words violated your principles, they were offensive, etc.) Just curious to know what was the quote that upset you so much.

Sometimes when people make comment like on the TV or social media they say some things which can offend to wish to yourself that they should have said it in a much positive way and not like that. LIke a programme i was watching some years back when a man tells a child that when i was like your own age i had achieved more than this , i think it is not proper he should have used more encouraging words.

Yeah you are right. You can't please everyone but at least try to maintain spitting out friendly words and encouraging words for your audience. Even if is for your critics.

That's pretty obvious though, in shows you have a lot of different characters, which have individual personalities so different people can find something that they share with a certain character from a show. That doesn't mean that you should vibe with every single line there is, but someone else might.

I always have that thought even though I am watching my favorite show or the movie. Even when I am reading a book, I often feel that the author is so wrong at certain places. I not only have disagreements on how the character speaks and thinks, but also the course of events. However, I am a rational man and I easily satisfy my mind with the thought that this is a fictional world. Even if I believe it as the real world, we human beings are prone to make mistakes.

That's right. Humans are imperfect and no man in this world is excempted from that fact. That's actually the reason why I hate people who criticise celebrities and other public figures as if those people are not human beings. They're still humans tho and they make mistakes. There will be times that their opinions and way of thinking will disappoint us.

It's not necessarily regarding a TV Show or a Movie quote but I always feel this when I watch certain game shows. The contestants will sometimes give a wrong answer for some questions where I know the answer and think it would be extremely easy. When this happens I will be shouting at the TV and then get slightly frustrated afterwards when they get the wrong answer for the question lol.

I wouldn't have to push the wrong button as you did considering the fact that the love we have today is one that is filled with hate and malice beneath which is not the type of love that Christ asked us to show to one another. Also, I am of the opinion that people should be allowed to express themselves in the best way that they like and how they wish to see their ideas shown as well.

I for one believe that there are greater things in this world than love, so I'm already "pressing the wrong buzzer button" on your opinion. For starters, you can't label an opinion as "wrong" to begin with. You can disagree with it, but it isn't deniable in the way you can deny a false fact. Compassion is, in my opinion, of far greater importance than love. I've seen love without compassion, and let me tell you, that love is worthless. Compassion without love, on the other hand, is still beneficial.

You have a point. There are so many wrong things happening in the world and the wrong thing in the TV shows and movies are very negligible. There are warns happening around us. The latest thing to happen is an attack in Syria. Well, Syria is an evil nation, however, the attack from the US and UK just aggravated the situation. Why should we bother about petty things like pushing the bugger for TV shows/movies.

I think we should not even touch the wrong button if we have the love for people and people views shouldn't be censored. The love of God should be what everyone should have for one another.

2 quotes from a Stephen Hawking documentary and interview the first quote was "I am an Atheist" and the second quote was "“Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

There's this old quote done decades ago by the late Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. It says that "the simplest explanation is: There is no God. No one created our universe. And no one directs our fate." Which for a scientist seems so illogical. It's like he's saying that the universe just came to exist from nonexistence.

As the majority of comments or statements made by people either on TV or in movies are generally speaking nothing more than opinions and not actual hard based facts I can’t honestly say that pressing the wrong buzzer so to speak is something that has ever occurred to me - as apart from the fact that other peoples opinions are not something that particularly bother me and nor are they something that I would waste time dwelling on - but more importantly strongly believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion - regardless of whether others may or not agree with it!

I do love to have this kind of buzzer when I am watching my favorite TV shows. A lot of stupid things are said everyday in that shows that seems not a big deal but at least it should be corrected.

If you mean by this discussion is something that I vehemently disagree, there are lots in Facebook posts and comments. First is the rant. I don’t want to read a ranting from someone with no name. Like that guy or girl is so and so but there is no name so it is like hinting to everyone. I would definitely click the dislike button on such a post. Another is the posting of photos of another person. Why post the photo when your friends don’t know that person. Not to forget, I hate wrong grammar.

This discussion is mainly about something that you disagree in the TV shows or movies. However, there are a lot of things happing around us that if you have a power to press buzzer, we would be pressing buzzer every five minutes. Whether in the onlone world, like facebook, snapchat etc. or in the real world, in your work place, home etc., you always have disagreements.

I guess people on social media behave the way that many people have predicted long time back. It seems like they think we are some sort of the soapbox for their rants. I guess we learn from them and we have to often discard as well. Some of the time that does make sense. And not all the time things are going to work around. But we learn and we make choices.

I hear lots of bad words on TV. People today think that saying curse words is okay for everyone. But it's not. While they may think it's fun, it makes people who aren't used to it feel deeply uncomfortable.

I also do not like curse words in TV and movies. It feels bad when the characters use curse words while watching the show/movie with the family. I also do not like adult scenes in the movies/shows. The movies/shows are for public viewing and having such visuals still make some people feel bad. Well, there is always rating and disclaimer. However, I believe curse words and adult scenes tarnish a good movie and shows.

I've had it with the local TV shows in my country. If they could get a dollar every time I smash that wrong button, they'll have a million dollar from that now. I stopped watching those stupid TV shows because they somehow influence or brainwash people especially kids. People should read books or American TV shows instead of these craps.

Please, what are we even dragging here? Pushing the wrong buzzer button for what was said in a scripted movie? Are you kidding me seriously? It's a movie and not real life event that is being captured. So therefore, anything that was said in the movie don't really hold any water because it's just meant for entertainment. I really wouldn't bother on such things because it's very irrelevant to getting myself worked up over some so infinitesimal.

Whatever is being said in the movie and show do not hold any water. However, the discussion tries to bring forth a simple fact about viewers' disagreements with what is being said. The discussions try to find out how the viewer feel when he does not like what is being said. Well, the movie and show is scripted, these are fictions even though some of these are based on real life stories. However, many times it looks that they are saying wrong things.

I used too watch local TV shows such as Showtime and It Bulaga. These shows are games and entertainment so sometimes they have games that need to answer the questions. What's the funny part is that even the simplest questions can't be answer by some of the players that I want him/her whisper the answer or throw him/her the answer right away.

I don't watch movies very often but I don't really have to go to the extent of pushing the wrong button because it's just a creative work and it's bound to espouse ideas that don't necessarily resonate with the audience. It's not likely to influence me, either. In the first place, members of the audience can come from opposite poles and what could be disgusting or disconcerting for me could be proper for others. No one can assume that everyone else thinks the same way. Is love the most important thing in this world? I think this calls for another discussion.

I feel like pressing that button all the time when I'm watching a Tv programme or movie. I like to watch a series called Being Mary Jane. It is no longer in production.It's about the ups and downs of a single newscaster who is past 40 years and is trying to have a baby. She dates diffrent men. Her love life is a disaster. As she goes from one inappropriate man to another, I often feel like pressing wrong especially at the begging when you can see the man is so wrong for her.

I've seen a lot of unwarranted answers to questions being answered by beauty pageant contestants in almost all pageants I've watched. And sometimes it's quite funny even in prestigious competitions like the Miss Universe Pageant and Miss World, it could be attributed to stage fright and nervousness of the pageant contestants but it really looks like some of them have more beauty and less brains.

Most of the time when I'm saying that about shows, it's reality TV that gets me that way. Sometimes I think there's just certain stuff that doesn't need to end up on TV, but we're in an era where oversharing is totally normal!

Have to agree with you though, that love is the most important thing in life. I can't imagine life without the love of my family - it would be miserable!

Eh, TV characters have differing ideals and people also have their own concept of what is right or wrong, so having a wrong buzzer won't really help.

In Infinity War when Iron Man and Spiderman saved Dr.Strange onboard an alien space ship which was hurtling towards Thanos's planet Titan, Dr. Strange asked Stark if they could turn back the ship and go back to earth. That has no sense because as a wizard tasked in protecting earth and other dimension and holder of an infinity stone, Dr.Strange could easily open up portals and travel to it, so why did he ask Tony if they could direct the ship back to earth?

I really dislike it when evil characters in TV shows justify their actions by making it seem noble. So many antagonists are delusional to the point of revulsion. They've said so many cruel things like other people's lives mean nothing. Sometimes it's so bad that I stop watching altogether.

There are many dumb lines in many movies but unfortunately, I can't remember all of them. I can still recall a line from the movie Twilight where Edward told Bella ''You better hold on spider monkey''. This line is odd and has nothing to do with the movie.

Well, in cases when you disagree with the idea presented on TV, that is a perfect time to use social media. Social media has done great wonders to people that everyone can voice out their sentiments and it may reach to the specified person in just a matter of seconds. With social media, you can gain people who will hate you, but definitely, you'll gain followers too. With your followers or friends, you can have discussions about what's wrong about something that you've heard or seen.
