Note the sneaky double-commercial at 15 min.
This explains why it takes me about twelve minutes to watch an hour long episode of Mythbusters: I fast-forward so heavily that I miss most of it. Well, I wouldn't say I miss it.
I liked this comment:
After every episode of MythBusters I've ever watched, I always end up feeling a little bit cheated, but I could never put a finger on the reason (or the remote). Thank you Thomas for helping me realize why I've always found this show, which seems so interesting, vaguely unpleasant to watch. When I tune in, something in this formulae keeps me watching, as intended, but leaves me unsatisfied and feeling jerked around. The problem is that no story is actually told in a manner efficient enough for my enjoyment, rather just efficiently enough for me not to notice how little fun I'm having.
