We are currently binging Scandal, and I was stricken by how often phones ring to signal transitions, or phones ringing unanswered explain the state of relationships. I haven’t counted, but I bet a phone rings or you see a screenshot at least 30 times in an hour-long episode. Some of the characters seem to ALWAYS have their phones in their hands, or be tossing them down on desks.
My second nomination is Elementary. I would bet that more conversations on that show get interrupted by phone calls than don’t.
The one thing I haven’t been able to appreciate is when shows try to incorporate texts. Haven’t seen a show do that i a way that doesn’t seem contrived.
What show do you think relies on phones the most to move plot along, develop relationships, and such.?
