    Link: HEAVY-HANDED Hawaii 5-0 Subway Product Placement - This was an actual scene from the more recent episode of Hawaii 5-0. I think I was just raped by a footlong, myself.

    It won`t be such good publicity when the character keeps the same weight in future episodes.

    And this is what happens when producers rape a TV show that wasn`t that good to begin with, by supplementing revenue for the show.

    Blatant Subway advertisements are much more obvious in Chuck - mainly because that`s who funded the last 2 seasons.

    Yes, hawai`i 5-0 sucks, but Scott Caan is so sexy it`s worth watching.

    In show advertisements like this wouldnt bother me so much if it took away from actual commercials. I would love to have an hour long program with one short commercial break in the middle and the rest of the show littering product placements and advertisements seamlessly into the story line.

    This one, obviously not seamless.

    The finale of Chuck on Friday had a HUGE Subway product placement at the end.

    Has anyone seen Bones lately? Pretty much every episode wastes a minute or two with Bones/Booth talking about the features of he god damn Prius. I would honestly be happier to see an extra commercial than listen to them talk about it.

    Wow, and I thought the show "Chuck" was bad with the blatant product placements.

    The thing with Chuck is that the fans agreed to blatant subway product placements in exchange for subway to help keep the show on the air. Also, Chuck`s product placements are usually hilarious, which helps.

    Fringe has done it quite seamlessly. Every episode has a shot of McDonald`s somewhere. A recent episode had a car placement, but the dialogue was done very tastefully.

    If you listen very, very carefully, you can hear Jack Lord spinning in his grave. This is way beyond dumbing-down.

    Product placement is always a distraction from film and TV. Unless it`s a fake product I suppose
