I've just watched The Mysteries of Laura on 5USA, series 2 episode 1 broadcast at 9pm tonight.
Why oh why did an unwanted voice barge in 51 minutes into the recording, when the programme didn't end until 58 minutes, talking all over the dialogue to tell us what was going to be on next!
Totally unnecessary and extremely irritating.
Please could somebody stop it from happening again?
Thank you.

Congratulations on my now making all viewing of your programmes after recording same the day prior

This due to the now approx 20 minutes in every hour of extended advertising and irritatingly repetitive trailer material contained.

Works well for me but doubt your advertisers would not be that pleased.

Bill Cunningham: I fully agree mate. The mystery for me however is why the programme was ever made in the first place.

I think it's time 5usa stops repeating the same csi's and show some new episodes

How hards is it to just start a tv show from the beginning? Instead of one episode for example S3 E5 then the next one is S9 E1

Just start from the beginning simple

I love Law&Order and Law& Order SVU but I cannot watch it. I go to bed early because I get up at 4 to go to work. Could you show some in the afternoon instead of CSI episodes that have been shown a thousand times?

Mariablanca Perezaguilar: Having watched every single episode of SVU myself, I'm guessing that they 99.9% of them can't be shown before the watershed (9pm). This is also true for them when they are first broadcast on US TV. Why not get yourself a Freeview+ and record them so you can watch them whenever you want?
