Really?!? Commercials in a pay-per-episode?
on July 20, 2013
I love the show and this has nothing to do with the program. This may seem a bit over the top or nit-picking as far as complaints go, but as an old man in my 40's, I remember the promise of cable TV; You could be a paid subscriber and watch your shows "commercial free". That didn't last very long!
For some reason (greed), every episode of season 8 I PURCHASED, has a mandatory opening commercial for the same, lame show: "Wilfred", which I honestly do not give a rat's hind-quarters about and I get very annoyed since it's the same exact commercial. If you're going to water-board me with garbage previews, at least make more than one preview to break the monotony!
If this is the future of paid-for media, piracy will explode and I'll just wait and record the shows on TV for FREE and then fast forward through the commercials as usual.
I know this seems like nit-picking, but I paid for one show, not trailers for other garbage shows they're trying to push on me.
Again, Absolutely love the show, but loathe the forced marketing after they already have your money.
