Darkness in TNT promo

Postby dick » Tue May 07, 2013 5:54 am

Twice tonight caught television promos for new season of TNT show called "Falling Skies" -- it uses Cohen singing a snippet of "Darkness"!

Sounds great!

Yes!! I heard that too. During the Miami Heat/Chicago Bulls playoff. I was reading-not really watching- so when the song came on it took a few seconds to realize that it was playing on the commercial. So cool! Now I will def have to catch an episode of that show.

A snippet of a song used to promote an obscure TV show that no one outside of the USA will ever see is 'news'?
That's 'context' baby.

Thanks, Dick! Interesting indeed.

Rodin, for me this is noteworthy news. Now I'm looking for a promo video itself to add it to my collection - http://tv.currentcohen.com/

Rodin, that is rude and completely unnecessary. Please stop it.

And that is coming from someone who’s main contribution to this forum is making cynical and sarcastic remarks and jokes about others.

It's more that there is absolutely no need for sarcasm on a forum like this.

A forum like what?
it's a forum so people are entitled to opinions. My opinion is that a snippet of a song on a TV ad is not news.

Fine. Why not just say that instead of using sarcasm etc to put other people down? They are entitled to their views too.

Perhaps you could try to express your opinion without your usual sarcasm. :idea:
As you can see people are reacting (and not just in this topic) to the way you express yourself, not on the fact that you have an opinion.
