Audio description analysis

I just thought I would comment on something I talked about earlier which is audio description. I thought people might find this interesting but if not sorry. I just watched two episodes of lawn order with audio description and thought these thoughts. I was surprised how much sexual content I miss. obviously not the verbal but just the way the descriptor describes scantily dressed women or in one scene in particular women on their knees with zippers unzipped etc. if there was no description I would’ve picked up definitely on the escorts but not really what was going on. He mentioned and one saying there was cocaine on the table and I thought that was interesting I’m surprised they showed actual cocaine or what look like cocaine in a scene. apparently I’m still on the 60s in my mind where you know people slept in separate beds in the same room. Watch tons of law and order undescribed and I’ve never gotten this kind of description before. I also watch tuna half men and thought the description during a sitcom was a bit much. again for me there are times when I think it’s necessary and sometimes I don’t I just would like the option on cable satellite U-verse etc. in one scene of that a girl had a tattoo on her butt cheek that the kid Jake saw I would’ve probably picked up on this later in the episode when he drew a Picture of it but the descriptor pointed that out immediately because it was relevant to The storyline. anyway I thought I would give my opinion since I’m actually hearing newer television shows that I’ve seen with and without description now to get an idea how it changes things for us.
