Is there a way to record them?

Requires Adobe Crash Player. No thanks. I used to have have hourly crashes from Flash ads scripted by incompetent programmers. Since I disabled Macromedia plugins, I haven't had a single problem. Never going back.

my pal Ronnie once told me that watching a long video stream on his computer is like projecting a movie on his front door. Sure you can watch it, but every five minutes there's something coming in and out that interrupts your ability to watch. plus a lot of these shows are already out on DVD. Give us the rare stuff.

I'll second that. Or at least give us some of the stuff they're *thinking* of releasing on DVD to help them gauge the interest in it.

Yep -- the black-and-white stuff.
