2013 Resolutions: Become the 'me' I'm happiest being. Accomplish some goals.
I dislike commercials. Big whoop, right? Everyone dislikes them. They're loud, there are too many of them, they interrupt the show you're watching.
Here's why I dislike them: emotional whiplash.
When you're watching a show, it puts you in a certain mood, be it funny, serious, sad, mad, or something. When the commercials come on, it's a hodgepodge of ads all thrown in with a different mood for each. There's not much thought on the part of the network other than, "how profitable can we make this show?" - let alone respect for the viewing audience. This brings not only you out of the mood of the show, but there's a different mood for every commercial. You're experiencing a new mood every 30 seconds.
