TV ADVERTS

I think the advertisement breaks are getting longer. I remember indulging in some "quality interaction" with the Mrs when the adverts would come on during a film and the action would be in full swing when the film restarted. Now any "quality interaction" during the advert break seems to be finished BEFORE the adverts come to an end. Yep, those advert breaks are definately getting longer.....

I detest them.

I also mute the sound the second they come on, and I make an absolute point of NOT EVER buying the product or service of the more annoying, longer or more repetitive ones.

Current hates are anything to do with VHI or those beer ads with the creepy looking weird Dutch guy who ends every boring adventure by staring at you and saying "probably". Or maybe he's Danish. Who gives a toss.

Hear, hear, Ernie, JB et al.

I record the stuff I might want to watch and then watch them when it suits me. Then, when an ad break comes up, 4/5 clicks of the "Forward Arrow" and I've missed them all - "Simples" -  (oh, Lord, I've admitted that I've watched THAT one!

Spud's right, though. Derry Girls fills half an hour on terrestial TV, yet is 22 minutes an episode on Netflix - now I wonder how that happens

Just announce the word "Piss" in the pause before he says Probably.
