A bit of advice to writers of TV, movies and books alike: I’d rather be confused than treated like an idiot.
People generally aren’t as slow as you seem to think, dear writers of the stuff I read and watch. You don’t have to make that hint so painfully obvious, or explain this concept or piece of technology in such eye-rolling detail to me. It makes you and your character seem uncomfortably stupid.
I know you’re not that dumb, so don’t assume I am.
Thanks in advance,
