I was about 3/4 through the German film "Wings of Desire" via on demand, and it suddenly blacked out with the "You Just Watched" screen. The problem was that I didn't "just" finish the movie. It was to run until 1/29, and this was still 1/28 on the east coast. There is nothing more annoying than to be absorbed in a film and then to have the projectionist pull it from under you. Every time I tried to watch it again from the place where it stopped, the same problem would recur. This stuff is happening far too often now on tcm. Those dialogue boxes in the lower left corner are sure signs of trouble. Perhaps tcm needs a bit less leftwing political indoctrination from Ben Mankiewicz and a bit more technical expertise so that your viewers can actually finish a movie when streaming from "on demand". Thank you.
