Has anyone else here with Comcast cable television service noticed that commercials (with increasing frequency) seem to be having a little “hiccup” when they begin? It is reminiscent to me of the deja-vu phenomenon from the first Matrix movie (I think they called it a “glitch”) when something would happen, then rewind and happen again. The commercial will play about half a second to one second, then stop and start again.
I certainly don’t mean to imply any fanatical suggestion that we are in fact living within the Matrix (I’m not okay in the head, but I’m not a conspiracy theorist, heh) … I was hoping that maybe this happens elsewhere and perhaps someone with maybe some insight into television broadcasting (or at least has a theory of their own) might know why these glitches seem to happen during commercials. I notice them more and more these days; I figured maybe they were being done to synchronize broadcast times by small increments so that shows and commercials have evenly-alloted time spaces and so that nothing runs too long or too short and gets cut off. ::shrug::
