I really love my DVR. I may say that cell phones, laptops even iPods are my favorite household items (each with its own merit) but seriously, I really f*cking love my DVR.
Once you go DVR, you do NOT go back. Fo sho!
Because once you have it, you don’t have to worry about running home to catch the beginning of Gossip Girl or The Office, you don’t have to worry about the VHS tape running out or the quality being bad. And you can stock up a ton of shows and watch them whenever you want.
Oh and you can fast forward through commercials. That is my favorite!
A fellow DVR-fan and I were talking about our “avoid ad” strategy, which includes starting a live TV show 10-15 minutes into it so we can flip through commercials and catch up with the show before it’s over. And then “poof!” the show is done and I didn’t have to watch any commercials.
One of my friends *gasp* doesn’t have a DVR. I forgot what that life was like. But I’m a good friend and offer to record things for her and then have her come over to watch. See? I’m not that heartless.
But as much as I rave about the DVR, it’s not perfect. Like any relationship, there are ups and downs. Like when it cuts off the recording early because of the guide or it doesn’t record things I ask it to. Yeah, that really irritates me, but I still love it :)
My favorite kind of Friday night includes: People magazine, an ice-cold soda and a week’s worth of DVR shows to catch up on. Actually, that’s a perfect Saturday morning too.
So in closing, DVR, you complete me. Miss Jess loves you big time. I wish everyone could have one. And if I had to give up my cell phone, laptop, iPod or you, that would be a really tough decision. MWAH!
What about you? Do you have DVR and love it as much as me? Or if you had to give up your laptop, cell phone, DVR or iPod, which would you choose?
