No recorder? If I want something to eat I just hit pause. Of course, that’s not funny. This is.
Next time Paper plates
Gives new meaning to the term ‘two-minute warning’.
If you stay away from sporting events, you sometimes get five or six minute commercial breaks.
why cant they eat+drink during the game?
Only another 10 minutes of ’em!
PVR Arlo, PVR.
At least Auburn squeaked out a win.
I must watch different shows. The commercial breaks in my shows are long enough for us to eat leisurely a full-course meal.
Lately, I power-nap during commercials…
…this plays better if you have the Sabre Dance playing in your head as you read the comic
Save em for later
have they been magically transported to the 1970’s?
I once read that the water companies know when the commercial breaks are, even if they don’t have a TV. There is a marked increase in water use as folks dash to the loo.
I give games a 30 minute head start with Tivo, and do not answer the phone to avoid spoilers. Skip not just commercials but also the idiot talking heads and interminable play reviews
We stopped TV service a year and a half ago to save money (imagine saying that in the ‘60s!) and haven’t missed it since.
I sometimes miss those days of rushing back and forth during commercials.
I figure they are still binge watching Downton Abbey—-just like WE are.
The commercials are the only reason I watch.
I used to wonder why American documentaries repeated the same facts over and over and over again. Then I was told how many commercials there were and how long they took and that by the end of them the people needed to be reminded what the documentary was about. That’s when I stopped whining about our ‘overlong and too numerous’ commercials.
the nice thing about real time ota broadcast is the 3.5 hrs of uninterrupted peace.
Oh, boy. Is he going to get an ear full!
Ahhhh, pore thang, missed the commercials…
Don’t they have a delay? And why can’t they eat while they watch?
Amazing… they just ran The Grinch the other night with the heading that the show had been “edited for time allotment” WTF? They needed to add more commercials into the half-hour, so they trimmed the show! idjits….
OMG brings back memories of me and my hubby…one of us got the food the other a pit stop and vice versa…good old days when games could be watched.
I won’t watch movies with commercials, even if I can speed through them. They still disrupt the emotional flow of a movie.
