a peculiar phenomenon of growing up with american shows on the bbc is when something suspenseful happens, then it cuts to black, then cuts back to the same scene half a second later with a brief recap of what just happened. which just happened

or the same line is repeated but it's a different take from a different angle

or there's a punchline and it cuts to black. then cuts back in to the same scene with a brief musical sting

all of these things are very confusing when you're a child and don't understand syndication or commercial networks

@envgen You'd think they'd work out gapless playback for the "Subscription, ad free cut". It's all a bit weird when it's on Netflix and Netflix is the key distributor.
