Go, Tivo, Go!

My friend Laurel reminded me of Turner Classic Movies' "31 Days of Oscar" celebration in her TV Picks. So this morning, while I had a few minutes, I browsed through the listings on my Tivo and had it schedule recordings of some great movies. (And a few odd ones.) I love that it's so easy to see what is playing, tell Tivo to record it, and have Tivo check to see if I'm recording something else already. (For example, I have the trusty Tivo record Comedy Central's Daily Show every night at 10 p.m., but I was able to tell it to skip recording tomorrow's episode so I could get the Humphrey Bogart/Ava Gardner picture The Barefoot Contessa.) Also, by rating shows I watch, Tivo will automagically record programs during free time. So if something that I might like is on at 1:00 a.m., Tivo will record it for me, even if I had no idea it would be on!

The combination of great movies on cable and Tivo is too wonderful for words.
