I watch a lot of Japanese shows and movies and I think this is one major cultural difference between "us and them". They aren't that bothered with text.
Sometimes half the screen is covered with blurbs of text here and there, their commercials nearly transcribe everything said in a text format right over the image. And no one seems bothered by it.
Try doing that in a western show with our "TL;DR" mentality.

And that's another reason why you shouldn't go to theaters anymore. People laughing at a funny movie? That's cool. But now you have to put up with the thought police who didn't like the way you hold your popcorn and now want to question you. Probably interrupting a key moment in the movie for you and anyone else around you.
