So, after seeing the season debut of Doctor Who as I usually do — to balance the international trade flows of electrons — I tuned into the BBC America airing.
Yes, that is a CRT SD TV. STFU.
First let me say I give BBC America some credit for this:
I don’t know if they did that before, but it was a nice touch.
The broadcast touted “limited commercial interruption” by a sponsor.
Historically in television that meant few breaks and more show.
That’s not what I saw.
I can’t even recall the damn sponsor ads.
But I do recall the disgusting non-stop and absolutely tasteless and brainless amount of BBC America self-promotion ads!
How the hell can any of you watch Doctor Who like that and enjoy it?
That was tantamount to vandalism.
Breaks for ads made no sense whatsoever. There were breaks just to show vanity BBC America ads. What the hell happened to the “limited interruption” part of the upfront announcement?
And I don’t know who the hell Graham Norton is, but if he’s pulling down a paycheck from the BBC, that corporation is no longer living up to its mandate of serving the public interest. The guy should be selling his rancid body on street corners as a Rent Boy. That bag of stupidity has a BBC show?
And is BBC America deliberately loud and stupid all the time? Is this supposed to be the “America” part of the channel’s title? I find it offensive. There’s not enough “BBC” and too much “America.”
Now you see why I have a CRT SD TV. Because even something that has a legacy of taste and intelligence — the British Broadcasting Corporation — is nothing but absolute shit. I should get a new big flatscreen HDTV for that?
You lot can keep putting up with watching — or trying to watch! — Doctor Who like that. Me, I’m sticking to evening-out the flow of electrons.
