Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis
Have I recently repeated how much I love the DVR (Digital Video Recorder)? Ours are from the cable company and they (yes, there's one for the living room and the bedroom)never disappoint.
When SG-1 and Atlantis went on hiatus last summer, I left them in my first run episode scheduled recordings queue and forgot about them. Well, the shows have returned and the DVR recorded them giving me a fantastic surprise last night!
The same thing happened when The Dead Zone aired a Christmas special. I noticed the DVR recording and inquisitively checked. TDZ special was so-so, but the fact that I didn't miss the episode or have to scour the TV Guide weekly for specials was just too perfect.
