ABSTRACT
The author discusses his sentiments about TiVo or digital video recorder. It says that without the TiVo, the watching of TV is mind-numbing, as it can be set to capture new episodes of a television program or skip repeats. Having TiVo at home enables the author to watch his favorite shows in his own time. The TiVo is most helpful in allowing replays of critical sections of a show.
