I watch Arrow on Mondays, On Demand, as part of the Monday night learn to cook dinner extravaganza. On Demand still has commercials, alas — not as many, and all of them pretty much for the network we’re watching. But they’ve also been showing a lot of “now available on DVD” special sales. For the longest time, all the commercials were for DVD’s of The Carol Burnett Show, The Dean Martin Roast, and China Beach. Weird little time capsules, those commercials.
But a few weeks ago, the commercials changed: we’re now getting ads for DVD’s of The Six Million Dollar Man and the first season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
One of my friends said, “It’s like they finally figured out who actually watches Arrow.”
Meanwhile: Holy sh*t, Arrow! Aaaaaaaarggggghhhh!
(And hey — is the Queen’s Gambit still in a warehouse somewhere or did it get moved/ditched?)
