Buy me!! As seen on T.V.
#1
If you're like me, you flip channels while the commercials are going. And then you stumble across those annoying advertisements about... "order the salad spinner and we will send you 3 vegetable peelers for free!!" Well for some reason one caught my eye the other night and i watched for a bit. They were selling Egg Buddies. If you Dont know its little plastic egg-shaped cups that float in a pot of boiling water. You crack the eggs, pour them in the Egg buddy and then they float in the boiling water and you have boiled eggs without having to peel the Egg shell off. I LOVE THEM!!

Have you ever purchased anything from t.v.?? And did you love it or was it a pile of Crap??

whenever i see one of these 't.v. only' products, it usually takes about a month or so for their commercial time to run out, at which time they sell off their inventory in bulk to chain stores like sears, walgreens, big-lots, etc.

recently, i bought a ped-egg because it works wonders with citrus zest and grating cheese as demonstrated in their commercials.

i haven't watched a tv ad for over 15 years, i usually press 'mute' when they come on, or turn over. When i'm bored though i sometimes like watching those awful shopping channels and play guessing games over the price, or i do my own 'commentary' for personal amusement. Bid tv in Britain is ripe for piss-taking as they only reveal the price of something after you've bought it, so Wendy of Berkshire, Donald of Wolverhampton, and Lisa of Newcastle have no right or room to complain if they think they're in for a bargain and instead end up buying a pack of 10 wooden coat hangers for £42.99, plus an extra £6 for postage and packing. The best one i saw was a one hour presentation on teaspoons, hilarious yet mind boggling. Big Grin

I own a few as seen on TV things and they have been decent, in fact, the MagicJack was actually a pretty good deal, shocked that it didn't turn out to be total BS as I had originally feared.

Their support could be better though but hey, that's why the other providers bleed out your cash.

I'm not like you. I'm on my second PVR, and I stopped watching commercials 10 years ago.
I believe that TV commercials, at best, ruin the flow of a TV program, and at worst, they rot your mind.

I don't even watch TV but the damn YouTube ads are enough to make me want to shatter my screen. Not ordering shit. If I want something I can go to the store and buy it
