So, I was about to pull the trigger on the new season of Archer on Amazon Instant Video. I really like buying seasons of shows on Amazon, and I'm one of the rare individuals that has chosen to purchase things instead of torrent. So right before I went to buy the new season, I see that the reviews are AWFUL. The new season has an average of two stars; what a bummer. Then I actually read the reviews, and I see that despite people purchasing these episodes to watch, Amazon is throwing ads in now. We're talking like $3 an episode for HD, and to have ads tossed in on top of that? So justifiably, people are downrating the crap out of it to get the point across (worked in my case).
I'm not super excited where this is going, and it ended up being enough to keep me from buying it. I really feel good about myself for paying money for stuff, so I sort of feel taken advantage of now. I use this service A LOT, but they just burned a ton of good will. I think it's only like 15-30 seconds, which is practically nothing, but I'm having trouble not taking it personally as a giant "F*** you".
