On my TiVo - Mike Sampson
Mike Sampson, editor-in-chief, JoBlo.com
Our TiVo isn't exactly shrinking, it's just shrinking in quality. It used to be chock-full of episodes of 'The Geek Five,' Lost, The Office, 30 Rock, Heroes and 24. Now we rely on that pseudo-educational programming on Discovery and the Science Channel. I like 'Survivorman' but do I really need this many episodes on my TiVo? What does my wife plan to do with 13 episodes of Knitty Gritty?
I've also tried to use this time to catch up on series that I've heard were good but never got around to. Turns out Ugly Betty isn't that good after all. For us, the true saving grace has been Netflix. We're moving through our queue at record speeds. Of course, I'd give it all up in a second for a full season of Lost...
We're also actually saving programs longer. It used to be watch and delete. Now I'm saving shows and re-watching. Hey, a recycled 30 Rock is better than a new Deal Or No Deal any day of the week, right?
