Two great clips from Lewis Black on all the clutter on TV screens these days. Sometimes I enjoy this information density, but not whilst watching a movie or series. It totally detracts from the drama carefully crafted by the actors and directors, by slapping a huge animated banner extolling the virtues of some totally unrelated show not starting for another 2 weeks.
"Your job is to tell stories, it's not to tell us in the middle of the story what show is coming on next or which one is premiering two weeks from now! What do you want me to do, stop and get a pencil and write it down? Do you want me to stop watching and prepare myself for the next show?"
