Hate-watching. We all do it from time to time. Maybe its a dark and gritty reboot of your favorite childhood hero, or maybe its a squeaky clean cartoon of your favorite adult property. Either way, you're still watching it, congratulations. Even worse are hate-watchers with audiences. Even if you hate how your once-favorite IP is going, covering every rumor of a reboot or mishap by the producers is still supporting them! That's the opposite of what you want!
Ads used to be tricky. Subliminal messaging, remember that? Hidden naked ladies in paintings of ice cubes so you lust for Dr. Welcher's Diet Sasparilla. But these days? We're in a post-hiding-your-ad universe. Now, they straight up ask you to interact with a commercial. No more choice of illusion, just robotic PLEASE CONSUME.
Ah, childhood. Treehouses, riding your bike to the corner store to buy magazines and a hot dog, birthday parties at the local arcade, and BRIGHT FLASHING COLORS and LOUD FART NOISES on the TV to pacify you. Programming specifically made to make children (who laugh at literally everything) watch them over and over and over and over and POOF, you're 25 and still singing Disney Songs.
The internet was supposed to be smart. It tells me that it will analyze how I use it and tell me what is important. Then why dear god, why do I ABSOLUTELY need to see this 10% off coupon for fish bait? How about you actually tell me when something I want comes? Not spam. Literal spam presented as important information, can you believe that?
