TV adds, Is it me?

Is it only me that thinks the majority of adds on commercial TV are aimed at morons? Children's TV is more informative and understandable.
Half the item they are advertising is lost in the garbage jingo add. I have actually read the very small disclaimer print to see what the product is.

So far Ted although any 'Reality' shows **** me off. And game shows. Come to think, quite a few more.

Examples:-
Antiques Roadshow...BBC no adverts.....Very recent addition...Programme opens with "These are the items we will see in the show"
No need to watch all the programme now!
Buying houses abroad..... adverts every 13 mins.
Opens with "Will they buy one of these?"....more or less.
Pre each advert..... 'Resume of what we have just seen'.......After each advert 'Resume of what we saw before the advert and an indication of what we are about to see!.
And there's more....thousands more......I give up!!!

We not only have to Kev but for the most part prefer to watch live TV and it's free to us. Can't see the point of paying to watch similar inane junk just because it's the 'in' thing to do.

We can always find entertaining or educational programs as well as some dramas and gardening and cooking progs for my wife on live free sat TV Kev. All free so why pay for similar entertainment on Sky or Netflix etc.?

I am with you Ray. I just want to switch the tv on and watch something. I do not want to be pre recording or going into loads of faff searching in other places. There are hundreds of channels on freeview to watch. I sometimes record when there is a clash of decent programs but otherwise I just turn it off. When my daughter was small we told her that ITV was "broken" so that she was not subjected to adverts. I think these people tap into the shopper addiction that many people have. They love to "look round" shops and so they transfer that to tv programmes. Chris is worse than me he sits down and, literally, watches the first thing that comes on. We often look at each other after an advert and say "what were they selling?". Such a waste of time and effort and money making the advert!
