Dear Husband goes to bed at 9:00 during the week, and rises at 4:30. He really should go to bed 30 minutes earlier, but we occasionally get wrapped up in a show or movie at 8, and it's hard to walk away in the middle.

I need to be keeping the same hours he is, because getting up at 5 or 5:15 is killing me, when I don't get to bed until 10, or 11, or 12, or even 1:00. I USED to be able to do that, but I need to face the fact that I can't any longer.

I commend you on having the sense to get the sleep you need, and for doing the sensible thing and taping the shows you want to see. I've heard good things about "24" and have considered getting the first season DVD. I am also thinking about getting the first season DVD for "West Wing." Somehow, I missed out on that entire show. We watch Sci-fi, too, but this version of "Battlestar Galactica" just doesn't do anything for me.

There are times I just sit with the cat and veg out while the TV is on. Other times I work on quilting. It's very difficult to quilt and not have something to keep your mind busy. And, there are times when a show is on, that I'm working at the computer. So, it's possible that many of the people who talk about HOURS of TV watching are actually multitasking. And if they aren't, their minds are now warped!


You need to get DVR. DVR rocks! I never watch anything live now. In fact, I have no idea when my favorite shows are even on. I just set the DVR up to record the series' that I like, and then I get surprised when I'm reviewing the recorded shows ("Hey, a Battlestar Galactica recorded! Sweet, I wonder when that was on?")


I have enough trouble keeping track of 2 VCRs (when we replaced our DVD player because it couldn't read current formats we got a dual vcr/dvd). On VCR takes care of 2 shows, the other 1 show.

I won't get tivo because last I knew we would have to upgrade our cable, and basic cable is all we need.
