We watched the first episode of The Amazing Race 10 on Sunday night. It was exciting and fun to see the new teams, start picking out the ones you root for and the teams you love to hate.
But I already started worrying. Once the new TV season is in full swing, will we be able to keep up?
We use Tivo/DVR all the time. Probably excessively. I'm definitely addicted to it. However, I still haven't made up my mind as to whether it's evil or a benefit to mankind. On the one hand, if you stay home sick from work, you might actually be able to watch shows you like, instead of soap operas and many commercials about how trucking is a great career.
On the other hand, I feel like a slave to the Tivo. As the list of recorded shows grows longer, I put off eating, sleeping, running errands, acting social. Because we must keep up with the list. I know it's kind of stupid, but it has this hold over me.
This season I'm particularly worried, seeing as how we'll be MIA in the UK for nearly 2 weeks. Will Tivo ever forgive me? Perhaps I'll find 10 episodes of The Simple Life awaiting upon my return, as my punishment for abandoning The Tivo List.
