A Tivo Prayer

“Almighty Tivo, we thank you for all the gifts you have given us. The power to freeze live TV to go take a leak is nothing short of godlike. Let’s not forget fast-forwarding through commercials. It seems greedy to ask any more from you, o magic box. But if you malfunction and miss the Superbowl, we will destroy you in the alley with baseball bats.” ~ “Ted Moseby” in “How I Met Your Mother” This is a funny show with imagination, good writing, and full of characters that you can actually like. There is even a Barneys Blog. We really enjoyed the Tivo prayer. The fact that we just love our Tivo overshadowed the appearance of just one more shameless plug for consumer products inserted in television shows. My wife and I have taken to pointing out each time we see product placements in shows. Once you become aware of them, you realize how many there are, and yet you also can become a little more immune to their subtle messages. However, the fact that I can replay my Tivo to view the product placements again, maybe means that DVRs are not hurting the advertising market as much as they say. Plus, the fact that we can use the Tivo to replay product placements for Tivo, just makes it a little weird. (Special Note: I watched the Superbowl through Tivo, in a little less than 2 hours. Skipping all the commercials in the SuperBowl doesn’t seem right but I know I can go back to see any that are special and I will see the others many more times. I’m thinking its a good idea to Tivo the halftime show, because maybe Janet Jackson will come back.)
