I will agreed that there are times in a movie where a subtitle provides a useful reference for the watcher but sometimes I wonder what the director/writer was thinking when they added the subtitle to the image. The reason I brought this up was something I saw while watching the pilot of the TV series Surface. The scene opens showing a dock on the water and the subtitle says "the Louisiana coast near the Gulf of Mexico" , could anyone of you please tell me of any of the Louisiana coast that is not "on" the Gulf of Mexico?

Unless they've annexed Rhode Island?

Somewhere to run to before the next hurricane...

You and I know where Louisiana is, but perhaps someone on the other side of the world does not. Gulf of Mexico might be easier to find on a world map. Always keep future syndication in mind.

I agree with DukePaul. "Louisiana Coast ON the Gulf of Mexico" would have been a better choice of words. It's not the redundancy, it's the location.

At the moment the coast of Louisiana is in the Gulf of Mexico. :neutral:
