sound the alarms

Oh sweet sweet television gods. You have brought me to a new low with this new PVR Terminal you made me install. You made me do it. Like your American brother TIVO, you give us Canadians even more control over the television content we overindulge in. Good LORD you mean I can watch The Sopranos while recording America's Next Top Model at the same time??? You mean I can skip past every commercial, never to be bothered by them again? You mean I can pay an evil media conglomerate even MORE money?

Call the the police if you don't hear from me for awhile. I'll be in the one still in my pajamas after 5 days staring at the screen, chips all over my shirt, muttering something about "but there's probably something else I could watch, just wait...."

Please help.


  • Welcome to the world of the addicted :-). We've had a TIVO for 4 years now and can't live without it anymore.

  • I'm just thinking about how much more TV I could watch if there were no commercials...but when to you get up to go find your daughter's Smarties and eat them? Do you have to make a conscious decision to get up and eat junk food instead of wandering into the kitchen ostensibly to put a few dishes away and then coming out with handfuls of candies instead? Or how can you annoy your husband by watching another show during the commercials for "What Not to Wear"?

  • Oh, you're a goner. Lucky, but a goner.

  • I cannot help you. I have succumbed to the darkside myself.

  • If I seen a story on the news about paramedics having to use the 'jaws of life' to extract a blogger from her couch, I'll know it's you.

  • I swear that at least once a TV watching session I turn to J in amazement and declare my love for the PVR. It tapes every episode of The First 48 that airs. AT ANY TIME!! I think this is maybe how a mother feels about her newborn.

  • It's the most wonderful, beautiful, fabulous thing in the world. It's a little revolution in a shiny silver box. I've been lost in mine since we got it three weeks ago...I feel your joy and your pain.
