I love the Mr Asia story on TV3 right now - the Marty Johnston side of things rather than the Terry Clark side that was covered in the Aussie version. But these ads are just maddening. There are so many. I timed the programme bit just now and it was only 6 minutes. Six minutes. The ads are 3:30. This is an intolerable ratio. Stop breaking it up. They're on to a winner but they are ruining it. The human concentration span can only stretch so far. Give us a break... by not giving us a break.

I've stopped watching TV programming because advertising is such a relentless stream of brain pollution.

Downloading or streaming episodes is the way to go.

Ditto, Lissa.

We either go online, or buy the dvds.

I tried watching something on the telly the other night, and just gave up.

I think commercial TV is well and truly killing the Goose that laid the golden egg...

Yeah ditto, I couldn't be bothered to even buy a tv, just read the synopsis in the paper. Howcome they are re-writing history and leaving out Karen Soich?

Karen Soich was Terry Clarke's squeeze not Marty Johnston's. They had her on the Aussi made version of Clarke's rise and fall and very good it was too.
