Over the last year or so I've watched more US TV series than at any other time in my life, mainly due to the quality and current availabitly of these shows on Sky, Four, Five and the like. Each show has obvious fade points where I assume they place hold for an ad break. The UK channels cut away at completely random times, ignore these fade points and can sometimes ruin a scene completely. Can someone confirm that these fade points are in sync with the US ad breaks? If so, I would like to see the UK follow suit because I'd much rather see an ad break where the creators have intentionally catered for them than the randomness we seem to get.
