    *Commercial Twitch or **Phantom Commercial pain? Are you neglecting your remote? Is the ruthless sacrifice of commercials by Big Streamers leaving a void in your life?

    If so, I suggest a good stiff shot of bourbon. There is nothing better to relieve the distressing symptoms of cold sobriety.

    *The twitch when your start to reach for your remote and you remember you don’t need it.
    ** The emptiness you feel when there are no commercials to be vanquished.

    I’m experiencing a similar sense of “what-to-do-with-myself-itis” now that my new HTPC has eliminated the need to sit through endless FBI warnings and forced trailers on disc. However shall I adjust to the thing I want playing at the moment I press play instead of five to seventeen minutes later?

    I advise adjusting to the change. Perhaps a Valium to get thru the hard times...or the afore mentioned bourbon.

    Absolutely not! The first time I watched a TV show on disc I leaned back with a satisfied sigh and smile when the commercial break hit and up comes the next act with no commercial or need to ff/skip it via remote. A couple of years later I fully disconnected my set from cable (I wasn't watching it anyway) and haven't looked back...
