Ok, I realize I'm more, um, sensitive to these things than most people. But, WTF? WHY do random tv shows insist on having people throw up.. ON FRICKIN' CAMERA?!?!!!!
I mean, True Blood, ok, fine, it's sort of horror-esque, goo is sort of the order of the day. But random projectile-ick on The Sopranos? How is that necessary?!? And Secret Diary of a Call Girl?!??? That's not precisely what one expects, now is it? (No, no, it wasn't like that, some guy's wife found out he went to an escort and that was her reaction. Out of all the possible choices in the world...)
Jeez, just because you have the technology doesn't mean it's appropriate. And really, it's Never Appropriate.

OK, rant over, before I repeat myself more...

I guess it would seem very realistic? I think these shows are trying to show "nitty gritty real life".

And vomit would definately count for that.

But people vomiting on TV definately makes me feel ill.

I suppose you're right. It's just really not good for someone who's a bit of an emetophobe.

Even that stoopid e-Trade baby makes me want to barf. :-P

God was good to me. My kid did not have stomach issues.

heh, luckily I have no idea what you're talking about re: the etrsde baby, I download things or netflix them and thus no commercials. Karma says if I have a kid it'll prob have stomach fu... Sigh.

May you have my luck!

Most of the commercials are cute -- "so easy a baby in a high-chair can do it" kinda thing. He's buying stock all over. And at one point there's the baby spit-up thing. :-P

how are you liking true blood? it's one of the few things that makes me wish i had cable... love the books....

I haven't read the books, but the show is fun. We don't have cable any more either, I might be able to see if N has been keeping the files and make you a copy.

if you have it i would not say no. otherwise i will netflix eventually. and you can borrow the books if you want.

The sight of vomiting on television doesn't bother me, but get me anywhere near the smell, and it's all over.

And the smell of the stuff that they used in school to clean it up? That'll do it too. :-(

Eating being a rather important part of life, vomit is a pretty visceral thing both at the conscious and unconscious levels.

I think the real reason is that Hollywood is either made up of, or thinks their audiences are made up of 13 year old boys. Possibly both. Showing you all that is just their way of trying to get a reaction out of you.

I SO agree with you on this. I've tried to teach my daughter that mantra: "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!"
