I don’t know why, but whenever I see anyone using a knife on a TV show, I fully expect them to slice a finger off. I’m not even talking about horror movies or anything like that; I’m just talking about regular TV shows like Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, Ugly Betty, etc. Whenever someone’s in the kitchen cutting up vegetables or opening a box, I sit there expecting bloodshed.
It’s not that I want to see anything like that happen — quite the opposite, in fact. I mean, I’d feel a lot better if these characters were using a safety utility knife or whatever. But for some reason, seeing actors wielding knives sets me on edge and I often have to look away from the screen.
It’s weird, I know!
