Great stories

…but more time on adverts is not great

TJTat ,

Too bad, not good

Too many commercials. Commercial time is longer than content.

In theory this is ok but seriously ALL THE ADDS take away from any vibe the stories can create. Adds are bad in amount and content. And not all the stories are good in feel either.
