  1. Well, actually it’s a little more complex. Television stations have a maximum volume – normal programs do occasionally hit that volume, but only for explosions and whatnot. Commercials stay at the maximum volume for the entire spot.

    • TV shows these days have a real bad habit of making the actors mumble their lines for “dramatic effect”. It isn’t that dramatic, though, if I can’t hear what they’re saying.

      Sometimes realism must be sacrificed for drama.

      But then, I guess reality TV shows already taught us that, didn’t they?

      • Reality TV: an oxymoron on par with “civil war,” “military intelligence,” and “government assistance.”

  2. And there’s a piston to make the TV lean forward for extra emphasis. They must be at Ozy’s house.

  3. if the TV speakers are in front shouldn’t the force of the sound waves(bouncing back from the wall at least) move the TV back, not forwards?

    • I think it’s Berkley Breathed’s influence on Dana… in Bloom County, the TV would hulk over you, lean into you, all menacing-like, and urge you to buy, buy BUY!

      Courage the Cowardly Dog also has a bit of that, the leaning-into-the-viewer menacing TV..

      Flat screens just don’t do that as well… they lack the sheer mass the old ones had.
