Hey NBC - You Suck!

I'll completely ignore the fact that Heroes isn't coming back until the end of fucking April, only because it's such a great show. No, I'm talking about the much hyped extra HD Spider-Man 3 trailer you were going to show me if I went to NBC.com in the next 24 hours. Well, I went, to be told I had to download Quicktime (which sucks), then to have it tell me it would take 8 minutes or so. This is way too long for 200 something MB anyway, but then to have absolutely no indication of how much progress is being made in the download is ridiculous. Why not just let me download the file, anyway? Why does it have to be streaming? Afraid I'm going to make the Spidr-Man trailer available to others who might just (gasp) go see the movie? Anyway, so I trust this thing for 12 minutes (not 8), only to have it tell me that Quicktime is missing something or other which it needs but can't find on the Quicktime website. Wel, since I had no quicktime before, and followed the instructions completely, you'd think that it might have given me everything I needed. You might think that. Anyway, so I wasted 15 minutes or so, and saw no special HD Spider-Man trailer, which pisses me off, since I should have been asleep by now.

So anyway, NBC, you suck. I had heard that 30 Rock was pretty funny, and I had planned to start watching, but now, in protest, I will not. Also, I quit watching The Apprentice this season, so fuck you NBC.

I was livid when they flashed the "Heroes Will Return April 23rd" on the screen. Fucking bastards. I thought we had at least one more week. Now, Peter's going to be on that wall with fuckhead Syler cutting into him for six weeks.

As to the Spider Man trailer, seriously, why do you care? I mean, first off, I'm starting to get real tired of networks and shows urging me to go online for extra content. Fuck you. You have something you want to show me, show me. On my television. Second, why would you want to see 8 minutes of a movie you know you're going to go see anyhow? I don't get it.

I don't mind, but I don't have a bias against watching video on my computer, either.

Because it looks awesome.

NBC does SUCK but instead of protesting 30 Rock which does have some halarious episodes boycott something like their POS Deal or No Deal.... Don't cut off your nose despite your face.
