  1. @ NJK…yeah it felt like it, even more so in the final ‘hour’….I always use the add breaks to do stuff…get a drink etc..the final hour of this film was just mental…

    @ Kenny….I don’t blame you for dumping the tv ads, they really are a waste of time & money

  2. @ Jezza – looking at 2012’s actual running time, it looks like you’d have been subjected to almost 50 minutes of ads for a single movie last night. Guess that’s what PVRs were invented for huh?

  3. @Jezza (the first original one) – Dead right. Local Wollongong stations WIN, Prime, SCTEN, know why we stopped advertising on TV. Far too many commercials. Ads lost amongst the clutter. Audience being canabalised by 15 channels compared to the original 5. Quality of ads appaling. Hit the “mute” button now whenever a screaming Harvey Norman, Joyce Mayne, Good Guys, etc., etc. start.

  4. 2012 started at 8.30pm which was great and in the first hour or so there were not too many adverts. However the final 30 minutes of the film seemed to last for 90 as it was rammed with adverts every 10 seconds. Complete nightmare, got p*ssed off and went to bed, I will not bother next week….Note to advertisers, I was so tired by the end, that I cannot remember who was advertising what, so your money was well wasted….
