I hate it when I'm watching the end of a show and I want to know who played "man walking behind the ford ranger at the red light" and they shrink the credits roll to advertise what's coming up next or what's happening on the "next two and a half men" then they restore the credits to their regular size or they leave them regular sized but run them at about 3x speed

I must be addicted.  Whenever I make a statement about something in the entertainment category, my daughter asks if I got that from IMDB.  LOL

I hate the new thing some networks (*cough Comedy Central, E! cough*)are doing now. They let their shows end right at the time the next one is due to begin and they run the credits of the previous show in really tiny print and at warp speed as the new show is beginning. Pretty soon, all the networks will adopt this method, which would render the whole credits concept useless. If there's anything the Hollywood people should protest, that's it.

I hate when you're trying to figure out a particular song, and wait for the music credits (which are always LAST) and they put 3 - 5 songs across at once. WHo the hell can read all that at once? They give the frickin Bestt Boy his own line! Why not each particular song their own little limelight?

I remember seeing a show about Star Wars that said that George Lucas was threatened a law suit by (I believe) the actors guild because he didn't show any actors names at the beginning of the movie as required. 

However they let it slide, but when he did it again on the next one they got him pretty steep.
 
Not sure how they are getting away with it on ThemTube.

I hate that crap.  But like everyone else, I check out IMDB.com or as it is also known moviedatabase.com
