We were watching Kate Winslet in Mildred Pierce last night. She had just met a rich guy, and they were having sex on the sofa while their steaks for dinner grilled on the fire.
Those steaks looked so delish. I was thinking I'd like to eat those too. Kate finished having sex, had a little dialogue and still the steaks were cooking.
"Get the steaks off the fire!" I said to the TV. "They will be like leather soon."
(I have years of experience with cooking meat to the perfect temperature so this is a sensitive subject with me.)
I was sure they'd get them out of the fire after I warned them, but then Kate's new boyfriend decided he wanted sex again. "NO!" I said. "The steaks will be ruined."
So they began to do their thing on the sofa then I noticed the steaks had vanished.
"Continuity error," my husband muttered.
Am I the only one who gets worried about food on the screen? Whenever I see a sumptuous meal served and the characters only take a bite then have some crisis that takes them away from their meal, I always say, "I'll take that food. Don't let it go to waste."
