Lady Montreal ,

Amazing narrative but...

I just loved it from the moment it started. But then came the first ad. Ok, nothing is really free, I get it, they need sponsors.
Enjoyed the second portion of the show and suddenly: another sponsor break! Each episode is relatively short versus a lot of publicity.
It’s still a great entertainment, but the pace is weird due to these interruptions.
