I don't agree that infomercials are necessarily terrible. They amuse me. I used to like some of the ones that sold exercise DVDs and systems. Don't see a lot of those around anymore.
In fact, I don't see much of my old favorite infomercials much at all, although they run them at strange times occasionally.
I love the vintage infomercials for various exercise machines, some of the machines are okay, some are sort of strange. They still sell most of these machines.
I also liked the ones with little cooking appliances that I mostly can't remember the names of. One was an immersion blender, one was a machine that looked like a sandwich maker but had little wells in it that you could cook an amazing variety of neat little triangle shaped meals and treats in. Lol, they gave you a bonus one of those little machines, too. Always wondered why anyone would need more than one.
I had a Magic Bullet for years and now have a Nutri Bullet. Both products are actually nice and useful and I learned about them on infomercials, but didn't buy them there. Bought them in Wally.
Lol, I fear the Golden Age of Infomercials has passed, though.
S'ok, have my memories.
Resolved in 2014 to remain below 120!
