I just read a column linked in a thread in the TV forum about how producers feel they need to change the format of the show 24 because it asks too much of viewers to have to see every episode. Research apparently shows most folks watch around 8 episodes a year of their favorite shows. Yes, that's their favorite shows. TiVo makes all this a moot point. I've watched every episode of 24 this year thanks to TiVo. I'm out every Tuesday night, but I don't miss the show. My question is why don't more people, especially the HTF types like us, have TiVo (or an equivalent)? It is quite simply the greatest electronics product I've ever purchased. Words cannot describe the usefulness, and just shear coolness of TiVo. I can only guess more folks don't have it because they just don't understand what they're missing. Believe me once you have it for a week, you'll wonder what the hell you ever did without it. I liken watching TV without TiVo to watching a movie in Pan & Scan. Dear God, why? Don't answer that you don't watch TV because obviously then TiVo is useless to you. The question is for frequent TV viewers.
