Pretty much all commercial music, iPod and car commercials especially. Only a few commercials have used good music lately (A car commercial used Judas Priest's "The Hellion") but most times when they use actual bands they pick the most annoying indie rock ever. Just once I'd like to see an iPod commercial in which everybody is headbanging to GWAR or something like that.

If I hear Trains - "Soul Sister" on one more commerical. I swear I'm going to punt a kitten.

Okay, I got one. Food Network used to show Good Eats five (or maybe it was four) days a week at 11pm. They got rid of that and switched to a new, far more annoying, schedule that doesn't allow me to get my daily Alton Brown fix.

Also, the frequency of new episodes seems to have died off. Sad

Maybe this is an obvious one but, commercials. Especially those infocommercials, no not infomercials. I'm talking about those drug commercials that tell you how much you need some shit, that has so many fucking sideffects. Remember only the goverment is allowed to sell you drugs that may or may not kill you.


I'm so bananas I'm showing up to your open casket,
to fill it up with explosive gases,
and close it back,
with a lit match in it,
while I sit back, and just hope it catches.

Blow you to fragments,
laugh,
roll you, and smoke the ashes.

Yeah, when the side effects are equal to or worse than what the drug in question is supposedly treating count me out.

I hate infomercials, because I know I don't need a fucking egg slicer that can cut a car in half, but by the time the infomercial is over, I sure as hell think I need two easy payments of 19.99 and a free egg warmer valued at 40 dollars, along with my mighty egg slicer.

And I hardly ever eat eggs.

I think the infomercials that have super sharp shit are secretly marketed to serial killers, I mean who else is up watching infomercials at three in the morning that also happens to need a knife that can saw through copper tubing? If you're not a serial killer just keep watching them, you will be eventually.

So my nephew was watching Pokemon this morning and I was surprised that that shit is still going. It's been like 12 years now and you still haven't caught them all, Ash? YOU FUCKING FAIL.

Anything that is reality TV and that is based out of New Jersey.

DVD sets of TV shows that only lasted one season, but refer to them as "The Complete First Season", as though there were any afterwards, instead of "The Complete Series".

Eh, I doubt shows plan on being canceled after one season. The DVD sets I imagine go out soon after a season is over.

Fresh Prince is great! Jersey Shore and the multiple spin offs based out of New Jersey aren't. Also, the last time I checked, Fresh Prince wasn't a reality TV show. Laughing

I hate how there aren't any good Saturday morning cartoons anymore. This isn't even one of those "back in my day" kind of things; this is about the fact that there just aren't any cartoons on anymore. Sometimes I'll wake up Saturday morning looking for some fun cartoons, and FOX is showing fucking infomercials and another channel is showing church shows. What happened to Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters and Transformers and Thundercats and all of that awesome shit?


America. Teamwork. Healthy after-school snacks.

I hate when a show is on back-to-back in syndication, but the episodes that are shown are on two different story arcs.

^ Word! I've stopped DVRing older shows because of this. I might as well look on website that sells tv shows on dvd that aren't for sale. That's how I ended up with Wonder Years.

When ABC canceled Boston Legal I boycotted the station. I haven't missed a thing, especially with MNF moving to ESPN.

The Mythbusters whoring themselves out to sell movie tickets.

I'm okay when they pull something really cool from a movie and test it. And while it irks me when they're shilling other Discovery shows, I can understand taking care of your own (and the personal tornado shield was effing cool, I do admit). And, fuck, I don't mind when they do commercials, gotta pay the bills, right?

But when you're doing the "Green Hornet Special", you pull in Seth Rogan, and half-ass it through two boring as fuck scenes from the movie that are -clearly- impossible, and call it the "Green Hornet Special", I mean, honestly. Have a little pride, guys.
