Even before we got cable television hooked up in out house and started burning through our free trial of HBO, I was curious about the other cable channels. Chief among them was one that you could find on channel 18, Showtime. My friend had it and swore that it was 1 million time better than Home Box Office. I did not believe him but his rabid fandom intrigued me.
When spending time at his house my interest level went up when I saw promo ads like this.
They were compelling, but I also found them very disturbing. It made me think that every image was actively watching me.
