Notes from Jack: 100 Words: Product placement

I was once a firm believer in the product placement model. As far as I was concerned it would be the best thing that could happen to shows because it would get rid of all those pesky commercials. But now that Netflix has updated its Dexter catalog and I get to watch it … Product placement is just absolutely distracting. Why does Dexter have a Smith and Wesson bar stool? That’s not just placement it’s bad characterization. I don’t care about advertisers slipping their wears into our entertainment. But please don’t do it at the expense of the characters or the story.
