Movie and TV Subtitle Criticism

Sun Mar 15 2020

One thing I’ve noticed about subtitles is that new people in shows who haven’t been introduced yet are always given a name. Why is that? They haven’t been actually introduced to the audience yet but now the viewer knows their name. This feels like a little bit of a cheat that viewers without subtitles turned on won’t get and might be more confused than those with them enabled.
