i think that i broke my new tivo...

I think I signed up for too many Season Passes. Is that wrong? I kept looking for some kind of number that I could limit myself to in the Tivo booklet. But it wasn't there. So I just started signing up willy nilly similar to when you were a third-grader on Valentine's Day and everyone in your class got a card. Even if you hated them. That's what I did. And it was the wrong choice.

Top of my Season Pass list is the re-packaged episodes of "Paradise Hotel," my favorite reality TV show of all time. If you don't understand what I am talking about, please, just give it a chance. It's like "Big Brother" but in a much prettier location, alcohol is mixed in and all the girls are in bikinis. And it's got Toni (of "Love Cruise" and now "Kill Reality" fame), who is literally insane and once yelled at me for not drinking a margarita fast enough. In my defense, it was made with too much mix.

The rest of my list is occupied by the usual suspects: "Family Guy," "The Simpsons," "The Daily Show," "Pardon the Interruption," etc. But then I evidently started to get high with power and continued picking shows just because they had a cool title. Looking back, I think that was wrong because I have about forty hours of TV to watch after two days and Tivo keeps recommending Scooby Doo reruns and shows from the Jesus Network. Note to everyone: don't Wishlist Jesus. He's so omnipresent he will break your Tivo.

p.s. If there's a secret Tivo handshake or any inside secrets, please inform me. I admit that I've been out of the loop. But I'm now in the loop standing inside ready for loop-like things to happen.

Turn the Suggestions off, it’s in the Messages and Setup section under preferences, and/or, Control your enthusiasm, only Season Pass what you really like and want. And if you can’t do any of the above, then fess up some more money and get yourself a 120hour TiVo unit :)

Paradise Hotel was the best show ever.

Excuse me, but how were you allowed to purchase a TiVo without knowing the secret handshake?

TiVo is the best. I can't imagine life without it. For all of your pressing questions, check out tivocommunity.com. It is a very useful and friendly site.

Why do all these "reality" TV shows have all these muscular guys and hot chicks? Isn't it "reality" that over 60% of all Americans are overweight or obese? We need a "reality" TV show based off of reality: Have all fat people in it.

Once I played Asda Story, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have Asda Story gold. He gave me some Asda Story money, he said that I could buy Asda Story Gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some cheap Asda Story gold.
