Is it just me or do they keep cutting away from scenes too quickly? When it fades to commercial, it seems so ill-timed and abrupt. We're not getting many of those dramatic "raised eyebrow/soapy reaction" shots before the fade out. The characters will just be talking and all of a sudden it cuts to a Dove commercial, LoL. I don't like it.
It's something that ABC, particularly OLTL, started years ago. I actually think Tomlin started it at OLTL during his tenure.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it's just not necessary, especially since usually you get that big "bang" in the music before the quick cut. Sometimes it will jolt you right out of the scene and it's way to jarring, especially in scenes that don't require that kind of thing.
