I've just finished watching season 4 of Sons Of Anarchy, and through the course of the show I noticed that they have at least one 3-6 minute montage per episode, and I think sometimes they have two or three in an episode to make up for the ones that didn't have any.

I'm slightly exaggerating, but the point is, they were so overused that they no longer have any effect on me. Haven't since about the third episode of the first season.

Anybody else notice the overuse of montages in SoA? How about any other movie or tv series? It doesn't have to be about overuse, either. Any abuse will do, eg; 80's trainging montages.

When at the last few seconds of the show they play a song while the characters exchange looks, that no longer has an effect on me.

Like the end of every Scrubs episode; ever?

Cold Case.

I rest my... case.

Though they usually got some really fitting and awesome stuff.

Perhaps not relevant, but I used to watch Supernatural, and eventually stopped because the format of every episode was the same, and I'd actually be able to time it to see when the next good bit will be Not that Supernatural wasn't good, just that I got bored of it for that

I didn't know montages were supposed to have an effect. But yeah, I just took it as part of the show itself since it's used so often.

Well, everything supposed to have an effect or they wouldn't bother with it.

The only montages I hate are "Previously on..." where they show random clips from like, every single episode in the season.

I guess not but it's still mega annoying.

I also generally dislike "LOL This is our family life" type shit.
