My Silly DVR and the Joy of the Internet

Last night we watched our recorded episode of Heroes. It got to the final scene where the voice over is saying something profound about people, life, the universe and everything, and the recording just stopped. This same thing happened last week, and while I didn’t think we’d missed anything, you know how shows will end on that one shot that makes you eager for the next episode? Well, we might have missed that.

So, on a whim, after we finished watching the recording, I went over to the show’s website, and sure enough, the whole episode is available to watch online. So we got to see that last shot, after all. And now, for future episodes, we have set our DVR to record five minutes into the next time slot so that it won’t happen again.

I love technology.
