It was a good rant. The sloppiness of the programming just seems extremely unprofessional to me.

Excellent Rant again Solomon. As if the poor editing and picture quality aren't enough they keep adding and subtracting shows at a moments notice too. You really can't enjoy watching anything on that channel.

I agree. Whats with the way they end The Wonder Years? they show a bit of the credits, then show the production things that should be last, then more credits. This is one ODD network.

Great rant this week, Solomon. You have made me very happy that I do not get this, what sounds to be a screwedup/amateur station

Very well put. I feel like we are being heard. To me, it is like reading a newspaper column where someone talks for the people.

It was a great way to show how unprofessional the network is, and the long way it hast co come before it gets everyone's attention. But, you didn't put any of the good things the network has to offer uss, and its future. What about the hard to find classic shows they are airing or have aired in the past, like Alice, The Wonder Years, and Who's the Boss?

But still, good rant.

That rant was right on the money Solomon! I very rarely tune into Alice or any of their shows because of the editing and the deal with the commercial breaks.

When I first found out that I would be able to watch Alice again. I was thrilled but that quickly disappeared when I started watching it on ION.

If they're not going to do it right, then they shouldn't have bothered to do it at all as you say. They should just stick to paid programming.

I didn't even know they were still on the air. Since Green Acres was dropped, I haven't been back to the channel. They did a horrible job with Green Acres. They sped up the theme song so bad. Commercials...more commercials, more often on ION TV. That's the biggest downfall of the channel. A commercial every couple of minutes. I watched a movie when they started running movies and we turned it off after about a half hour. Sound quality is a big problem with the channel. The shows are so quiet and then the commercials come on and you have to adjust. That's annoying. Until they start running decent shows more than 1 hour a day, they fail miserably. Until they fix the technical issues, they fail miserably. Until they learn how to edit a show, they fail miserably. The bottom line...THEY FAIL MISERABLY!!!!!!
