If you watched the finale of the "The Shield" [no spoilers]you might have noticed a little confusion on who is paying the bills.
Just before the credits roll and and just after Vic Mackey pokes his eyes out with a hot poker (did not happen) and the show ended the guy with the super deep voice announce that the show was sponsored by Direct TV. Fine. This is obviously a cable show, so you need some thing to watch it on, why not Direct TV.
During the show itself I counted at least two commercials for Time/Warner that attacked Direct TV and said it was crap.
Didn't we learn anything from the Kerry/Bush Campaign? Can't we promise not to sling mud? See how well it worked for new president?
Yes, we will take your money and then quickly shank you twice. Enjoy.
