Well someone would not think about it and that something else made the lifeless human into something that want to defend or feel, makes a lady or friend quite the something of value when you allready did not have any value for the world around you.

But yeah sometimes it is just slapped into it, but other times its the "normal" things that many want/to do or have happend.
I get real sick of people complaining about "aawhh not this agian.. " to something they have seen before all this is like that and all that is like this, just no? so most of those people most of the time don't just want to dig further in the story or how things are and its annoying.
like saying all porn is like that, and all [insert groupe/identity] is like that.

Even though this falls into those people that watch saying that "oh those will mostly fall in love with this, oh them too? and they?!" but does not see its not love they are showing but rather a first liking that could be quite heavy feeling, before each character knows eachother (and you as the watcher knows more about how they really felt)

If the world was ending personally i wouldn't fight for it however if it was for my girlfriends sake i would.

I imagine most characters feel the same.

I'm not trying to stir anything, I'm just wondering if I'm the only person that gets slightly turned off of a show or series when a romance just sorta "pops up" at the wrong time.


I get annoyed when a romance pops up at the wrong time or is poorly integrated.

I enjoy when the romances are well integrated and make sense.

Not every story demands it to raise the stakes or provide motivation, and when writers shove a damsel in distress in there to give the mighty hero something to fight for, it's just lazy and stupid. The military dude always has a wife and daughter back home. The masked crusader always has his girlfriend dangling off a bridge. The man with nothing to lose has someone to lose.

Blegh...

It's like...Hulk and Black Widow. Like, why? Why just smash that into the plot?

World ending is not really motivation to fight more then love is in a sense.

Feelings of love overpower the need to live in some people.
In hulks case he gave 0 shits about the world ending so it makes sense.

What if you dig further into a story and realize it's crap?
What if, after much analyzing, you recognizing lazy and unoriginal writing as bad?

if I have to stop and analyze the story to realize this, it's not big deal. As long as I have fun watching, it's all good.

If it's obvious while just trying to enjoy the show, I usually won't bother finishing.

That's not the case at all. Bruce Banner's whole thing is not wanting to be the Hulk because he might hurt someone -- even strangers he has never met. He doesn't need a love interest to be motivated to rescue people. He lived in secrecy and seclusion as a doctor, just so he could stay calm and help anyone. Stopping people from hurting or dying is his entire motivation for everything he does, including removing himself from society. So, no.

There's some common elements I do enjoy

like the whole "I have to keep my promise to (dead person)" thing and the one random character that seems to know everything that's going on or when a character sorta turns from a not-so badass to a super badass through means of like crazy ass training and stuff like that

but in the case of a shoehorned relationship, it's like "bad guy is getting ready to kill you or take your stuff or something and you're like "but my girlfriend needs me"...I mean, it's almost always a romantic lead, why not a family member or a good friend or even a gay lover for all that matter, there's so much you can do with romance for people to be sticking to one thing and doing it forever (and sometimes doing it wrong, y'know?).

Well many don't want to do anything and just calls it shit when its much better.. see it too often (sometimes myself included) where a title goes a bit "wild" but then later on you see why or atleast why they are not like this anymore or if it was just something to show something else.

I'm not okay with it either. I understand that it can help thicken some plot but a good story honestly shouldn't need it. Not to mention that its incredibly unrealistic that you can just pair everyone up in the end. Because that's not how that works, relationships are messy and sometimes people are left all alone.
And as for Sakura's and Sasuke's relationship, I would have honest prefered that it didn't happen. I really really wanted Sasuke to die at the last battle because that's the only way that I could really forgive him as a character for what he had done.
I really liked how they made Sakura kind of like a single mom though. I think that was a really good move, I just don't think it was a right move making Sasuke the father.
