My wife and I are pretty normal and sane people.

How come, then, that we every so often scream "Kill the b@st@rd!" at our TV screen?

Is it over-excitement at a rugby match, or a boxing bout?

Not a bit of it.

We do like thrillers - preferably good ones - but do at times watch, shall I say, 'lower quality' fare. These are mainly responsible, because sooner or later something like this happens:

Someone (often, but not always, a woman) is being chased by a (potential) murderer... the reason varies (the pursuer may be a psychopath; or someone after an inheritance; or the 'pursued' may be a witness to a mob crime... none of that matters).

The pursued hides, grabs a weapon, and then when the criminal appears, clubs him (it's nearly always a man) over the head... then they run away again!

"Kill the b@st@rd", we scream! When the guy is down, finish him off - he'll only get up and chase you again, idiot!

Don't know if this utterly stupid plot convention annoys anyone else on here...!

I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Neveer considered it before, but I think from now on it is going to bug the hell out of me!
