18 Things That Are Always Seen on TV but Never Appear in Real Life

18 Things That Are Always Seen on TV but Never Appear in Real Life: Warner Bros. Television

Warner Bros. Television

Television shows today try hard to instill realism in their programs. The Wire exposes the inner-workings of the Baltimore Police Department, Mad Men recreates life in the 1960s and Lost shows how polar bears and smoke monsters can exist together on a tropical island. However some things seen on television don’t actually happen in real life, like Shaquille O’Neal driving a Buick. Here’s a list of other things on TV that never occur in everyday life, collected from Redditors.

1. Getting a parking space directly in front of the building they happen to be going to in the middle of a large city.
