Season Finale Season!

I love my TiVo! I think I’ve declared my passion here before, but I had to say it again. Right now my box is overloaded with recordings of season finales just waiting to be watched. While we were gone on vacation last week, all those great shows just piled up in its’ memory and they’ve been waiting for me to watch them.

So I’ve spent the past few days enjoying the last “7th Heaven” and the last “Gilmore Girls”, catching up on my favorite game show, “Deal or No Deal”, and of course, watching “LOST”, “Numb3rs”, “Deadliest Catch, “CSI”, and “Criminal Minds”. In fact, I’ve watched so much TiVo my brain is suffering from pause / rewind / replay withdrawl.

While sitting at the dinner table with my family tonight, enjoying lots of laughter and conversation, I found myself thinking in the back of my mind “pause, rewind, and replay." Listening to the radio in the car, I am distracted by a call on my cell phone, and catch myself searching the radio dials for the rewind button so I can hear my favorite song again.

Do you ever wish you could stop time and replay the best parts again?

In this spring full of season finales I find myself wishing for a few more episodes – not of “LOST” or “Gilmore Girls” (though that would be very cool!) but a few more family dinners with everyone around the table, a few more giggles and inside jokes, a few more days with my kids before they run out the door and this season ends.

Sometimes, when there’s no room on the TiVo, or it’s already busy recording something else, I find a great program to watch LIVE. There’s no pausing, no rewinding, no replay -- just me on the couch, with my full attention on the screen. It’s good for me to me reminded that I have to focus fully so I don’t miss anything. I’d hate to miss the chance to make memories in this season. So, I think I’ll go have a chat with my son, before he sneaks away.

I want to watch Lost, it looks interesting. The only way I could do it would be to rent all the previous season dvds and do a marathon Lost session over the summer before the next season.

I didn't start watching it when it first came on because it looked lame. A bunch of people crash on a deserted island? Whoopee. Now of course I'd love to get into it. What did I get hooked into instead of Lost? Desperate Housewives. I started watching in the second season and watched most of the season until I just couldn't do it anymore. I sure wish I had those 10 hours of my life back!
Hope you're having a great weekend~ we've got rain :-(

We don't have TIVO, but we do have a feature called "On Demand"...which I took full advantage of today...feeling sluggish, so my daughter and I watched season finales of Numb3rs, CSI, CSI Miami, and a totally ROCKS finale of CSI NY!! I do believe our screaming at the tv was what saved the day:-)
