    OTOH, the new Capital One credit card commercial with John Travolta as Santa Claus is great - especially the version that shows him and Mrs Claus dancing ala Pulp Fiction at the end

    All of the insurance commercials are like Seinfeld episodes. First they develop the characters to sell insurance, and now the commercials are about the lives of the characters and have nothing to do with insurance...many don't even mention it.

    TV is yet one more modern marvel that had been drug down to its most base application, and there it shall remain.

    But...but...but...what do all those intertwined cultural references have to do with the merits of the credit card???

    Although that raises an interesting question: What do Scientologists think of Christmas?

    I hate everything about the Christmas commercial for a car company where the guy buys two huge vehicles for his girl and himself. "I love it!" But that's mine" "I love it". Just bugs me on several levels.

    I have the habit of changing the channel when a particularly irritating commercial comes on, and then I forget to go back to what I was watching.

    Is this the commercial you're talking about?



    Maybe it's her stature, but she always reminds me of Zelda Rubenstein of Poltergeist fame:
