Didn't have much to do tonight so the wife and I watched a stream of CBS for 80 minutes before "Big Bang Theory" started.

How the bloody hell do you follow a plot in the US??? There's a 30 second adbreak every minute or so - my favorite is the ad break you have before the credits.

No one really watches TV. It's just a thing you put on while you do the laundry or take a nap or play with your laptop/smartphone/newspaper.


I've not watched tv in years. I wait for disc or streaming...no commercials, mostly subtitles, pause anytime you want, resume it later, etc...



For the few shows I actually watch (e.g., Breaking Bad), I'll wait 20 minutes into the episode. Pop on the DVR, fast forward through commercials, and finish at the same time the actual episode does.

Same here. Sooner or later enough people will end up consuming their TV in this manner that the regressive, anti-progress TV studios will have no choice but to adapt or die. The sooner the better I say.


YEAH! Lookin at you, HBO, ya fuckers!!!!!!!

Most of us who know how just download it at this point. The TV market is beyond frustrating, I hope pretty much anyone with marketing degree falls into a well.

I don't know about stupid so much as generally ignorant - by which I mean extremely self-centered - and very loud and obnoxious. Obviously that's a stereotype but it does apply to more people and places I've been to in the US - as well as Americans coming here - than I've ever experienced anywhere else. I also think that perception is coloured with a bit of jealously too. Most people in most other countries aren't nearly as self-assured in that "manifest-destiny" sort of way that Americans are either. There's definitely a bit of envy in there. There are times when that sort of arrogance is insulting, and other times it's pretty admirable. Let's just say they definitely make the world a lot more interesting for both the good and the bad. I know I think it'd be a much duller world without them, and given how much time I've spent in the US I certainly love them more than I don't like them.

Yeah, those scenes with Sellars were priceless. Whole place getting trashed. And I always love how a fight could just stop to take care of some other business.

Ahh, Inspector Clouseau (CHIEF Inspector!) finally did him in after all these years. Thanks for the many laughs.
