TV vs Commercials..

Posted 10-05-2008 at 10:10 AM by PathMaster
Watched the Sanctuary two hour premiere last Friday night. It was actually better then expected. As with most shows I am sure it will get better or at least find its footing several episodes in. Anyway, as I was watching I was thinking to myself, damn a lot of commercials. So I decided to time the show viewing and the commercials. Over the course of several breaks the timing was about the same:

Six minutes of tv, followed by 3 minutes of commercials.

You have got to be kidding me. That severely hurts the flow of the show. Scifi should be able to do better then that.

Many tv shows need a chance to get a groove and not have the people at home distracted by the newest barbie hitting the shelves. I will admit that I was watching the latter time slot version of the show, not the initial premiere, maybe that had something to do with it?

I will be keeping my eye on things though to see if this is going to be a recurring theme. I will say this, I do like Fringe's 90 or 60 second breaks. Works quite well.
