It makes me want to punch someone in the face whenever I > see it. I should probably add that in the tv-department I think of myself as very spoiled. I'm used to no commercials at all. I have two completely ad free channels (Denmark's Radio 1 & 2) and three more that are only allowed to show ads between shows, not during (TV-2, TV-2 Zulu & TV-2 Charlie). These are funded by a mandatory tv license (if you have a tv you pay). Thus I have quality programming (they are required to do all kinds of things or their licenses will get revoked). Of course this also means that when I watch "60 Minutes" it's only 40-45 minutes because I don't see the ads. Watching "24" was also a bit funny because the "real time" aspect disappears when you see those clocks counting down before the ad break and then immediately after you see them counting down again (because the ad break never occured) - only three minutes magically disappeared! - Andreas -- <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/&gt; Commentary on media, communication, culture and technology.
