Note, however, that while we mere mortals react to explosions with some combination of shock and awe, if the folks on-screen are not so close to the blast they're surfing the shock wave away from the epicenter, they'll probably be [[UnflinchingWalk strolling coolly off]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqz5dbs5zmo in slow motion]], not even deigning to turn their heads to acknowledge things going to Hades behind them. From this, we can also infer that if one does not grant an explosion power by looking at it, it cannot strike you down with a piece of shrapnel. If they foolishly glance at an explosion, they may still survive by running from it and jumping, but are much more likely to get killed.

Let's face it, everything's better with explosions. A good shot of Stuff Blowing Up will save having to write many pages of character development and inventive language. Television scripts are short. Shortcuts are taken.
