Why is the electronically added sound of a bleep so much louder than the rest of the soundtrack? My wife watches a lot of random trash on TV for no reason while she’s doing other stuff, and even when I can’t hear anything else, the sound of bleeping bleepedy bleeps cuts through the house like a sharp knife.

It makes the program more jarring, which likely the intention. It doesn’t make it any edgier, though, and no one watches a program because it has a lot of bleeped-out swearing. All it does is jangle my nerves down the hall as I try and get something productive done.
