Forgetting about the Season Pass on Glee until two weeks ago has been the greatest thing to ever happen to cold Saturday and Sunday afternoons. After watching Glee for six hours this past Saturday (before ultimately going to bed at 8:30 – and then sleeping for 12 hours), we’ve successfully mastered the art of having glorious pop songs from past and present pop into our head. For example, any time we see something we like / want, we hear the lyrics from “Alone” by Heart.
A sample of how it works:
See Louboutin…“Till now…I always got by on my own…”
See Haitian orphans: “I never really cared until I met you!”
Go running in January: “And now it chills me to the bone…”
One look at the DVR...”How do I get you alone?!?!

We all know people that are so “holier-than-thou” about television. When asked if they’ve seen a certain show, (condescendingly) “No …I don’t really watch much TV.” Okay fine. You didn’t go to Harvard. Wipe the smug look off your face. And now with DVR these TV-snobs (aka liars) have something new to be snobby about. “No, I don’t have DVR…I really just got cable…” Sigh.
But…we’ve discovered that DVR has decreased our awareness of all the new shows (and we are not being smug – we’re being sheepish)! All we ever watch is DVR-ed episodes of Mad Men, Top Chef, and Real Housewives (and the Bachelor when it’s on…duh). We don’t even know what’s up. This Glee is supposed to be good….how’s Jay Leno….please report! What’s the new good TV for fall?
