But everybody does that. It's completely normal.
We see a bit about a programme and decide if we think we'll watch it or not.
If that's precisely the sort of reaction Gervais ridicules then that would be a ridiculous position to take.
People have to discriminate and make a judgement call about upcoming programmes due to air otherwise everybody would watch every single programme that appears on TV.
No we wouldn't.
We watch what we are interested in . If we decide not to watch something because of clips thats fair enough but that then removes out right to make any comment or judgements upon it .
The post I replied to has made a judgement on the content- not just a decision whether to watch .
I don't comment on the things I don't watch .
