ok.. there are a few t.v. shows out there that i really love. E.R. is one of the top 3. i love this show. the drama is outstanding. the acting is amazing. the stories are heartfelt. When they had the "smallpox" episodes, my heart literally ached for them.
last nights episode promised to be another wonderful example of exemplary television. 15 minutes into it, however, WCNC TV (our local NBC affiliate) decided to be giant ASSHOLES and interrupt ER with a "special alert" about a "car chase" in charlotte.
a car chase. not a high speed chase. no one was speeding. no one was hurt.
no property was damaged. nobody was shot at. nobody even ran.
it wasn't even in downtown.
it was just a car with sparks flying out of the back, being followed by cop cars.
whoop. t. doo.
i was seriously pissed off. this went on for a good 15 minutes. i was cussing and yelling at the t.v. just ask my roomie. i was so pissed i tried to call the station to bitch them out, but the line was busy.
that's ok though, that's what the internet is for.
here's what i wrote:
"i love your news shows, but interrupting ER for 15 minutes last night to show a"car chase" that was in charlotte was absolutely dispicable. i realize thatmaybe a few people out there needed to know because maybe they live close towhere the "chase" occurred, but honestly the blue flashing lights probablytipped them off. Couldn't you have just had a scrolling alert at the bottom ofthe screen? I am saddenned that there is nothing i can do to get back the timeyour special alert wasted. "
here's the website: WCNC
i feel better now.
