Today is Food Network’s Good Eats marathon! They have shown one episode so far (Mission: Poachable), and it was new to me (and here I was thinking I had seen them all). This should fatten up the archive (which is now almost 50% complete!)
I found a hack to let my Tivo control the cable box via the serial port on the box as opposed to the IR blaster doohickeys… It is faster and more reliable, but one advantage I didn’t expect is that the Tivo is now aware of what channel the box is tuned to. Now, if the Tivo is recording two programs back-to-back on the same station (like today’s marathon), it doesn’t retune the station for the second program (it just stays put). The advantage of this is that I don’t have to see the annoying cable box banner at the beginning of every episode…
This is my favorite television program.
The episode on now is “Churn, Baby, Churn” which is on ice cream…. We just got an ice cream maker, and watched this episode earlier this week, so I am going to jump in the shower while it is on.. But it is a great episode, and makes a Blade Runner joke. (Update: No it doesn’t, the Blade Runner joke was in the Jam episode…) Watch it!
