I lived in Sydney, Australia for four years and I returned back to the UK in August last year...This one particular night I was watching an episode of
Friends, it's the episode where Ross ends up having a one night relationship with some other girl and then he has to confront Rachel on his
return...blah blah blah.........
Anyway, I watched from the start of the TV programme and then there was an Ad break, so I went and made a drink to have during the next part of the TV
programme. Anyway, I came back into the lounge and sat down to continue the episode, but I sat there in complete amazement due to the fact that I was
watching exactly the same part of the programme I was watching earlier before the ad break. This completely freaked me out and I was actually
questioning whether I had seen it before or not. It was very confusing to say the least. Then there was another Ad break, but when it returned again
it went into a part of the programme I hadn't seen previously.
Now I know that there could have been a mix up at the TV station and they ended up reshowing the first part of the show twice, but the weird thing I
found was that the programme actually ended at the correct time indicated on the viewing times. If the same part of the show had been played twice,
and then they run the episode in it's entirety, wouldn't the show have run over it's viewing time?
Another time I was watching a soccer game which was on early in the morning while lying on the sofa. Anyway, I remember watching the game and there
was a goal in the 74th minute, then I must have dozed off. Not too long later I woke up after nodding off to find that the game was into the 69th
minute and I remembered the goal being scored in the 74th, so I watched the goal again. I remembered the build up to the goal, what the commentator
had said and the player who scored the goal. So I sat up quite bewildered and watched the end of the game until the end. And yes, you have guessed it,
the programme the game was being played on finished at exactly the time advertised in the viewing times. I still don't understand how this happened,
I just went to bed and lay there trawling it through my mind for ages until I dozed off.
This may be nothing major, but still puzzles me to this day........
