DVR


There are few technologies that are resisted, yet when tried, turn out to be required.  DVR is one of them.

However, I am finding that what DVR did was set off an “arms race”.  It is no longer enough that I be able to pause TV to grab a beer or put the kids back to bed.  No.  It has now become too inconvenient to even fast-forward through the commercials only to not go fast enough and then hit play juuust too late.  So you have to hit rewind a couple of times.

No.  That won’t do.

Now I have to buy re-run TV on DVD.

But I can’t tell you the hit of joy I get when the show fades to black signifying a commercial and I can just sit back and watch.  God how I love Boston Legal.

Life is good!

  1. I can’t help but agree totally on DVR, and DVDs. I find it slightly funny that you like Boston Legal, when I think it’s fair to say that show has a more than slight left wing slant. (I like it too though).

      It does, for certain, have that Left tilt. But the writing is great, or often was great, and the character of Denny Crain is just TOO big not to love.

      However, they did a couple of pieces that questioned the Left:

      Torture.
      Abortion.

      I also have begun to collect the West Wing series in DVD as well.
