Tripping The Tivo Fantastic

Mister Warren Bell is right again, as usual: Tivo is a good thing, not a bad thing. Since getting Tivo for Christmas (all right, I confess: I talked the kids out of a game console by promising them an electric keyboard and Tivo), the Robinson children have discovered the joys–and “joys” is the word–of I Love Lucy, The Twilight Zone, and the original Star Trek, while Edita and I have recorded tens of hours of Mystery, Masterpiece Theater and (another confession) Desperate Housewives, not that we have time to watch all that we record. The point? That Tivo enables familes to pearl dive through the seas of dreck.

Jonah, K-Lo, to Circuit City, march.
