I hate TIVO
TIVO makes me feel like I am a bad TV watcher.
Don't get me wrong: TIVO is the best damn gift I have ever received. It's an awesome gadget, and now I record every NASCAR event, and can pause live TV when the offspring are yelling about something.
I have about 15 shows with season passes. For those of you TIVOless - a season pass simply records every episode of that show. On my season pass list are:
American Idol (shut up)
Ghost Whisperer (I get welled up)
Dirty Jobs (love this)
Sex in the City (Becky's. OK mine)
So, having a full time job, owning the daycare, being a Dad to 2 little angels, and a husband to an angel maker, I don't always have time to watch any shows.
Our TIVO is an 80 hour unit - so after a while, it has to delete shows to make room for others. This is where me hating TIVO comes in. I HAVE TO WATCH EVERY SINGLE SHOW. It's like it's my job... like I would waste money if I didn't get to see every damned show recorded!
And another small issue. Beck got behind a week on 24. That means that she hasn't seen 3 episodes including tonight's. I am being a good husband and waiting for her... but I can't wait much longer!! I haven't seen 24 in 2 weeks! I MUST WATCH CTU save planet Earth.
