I’m about ready to take a hammer to our DVR. 15 minutes into tonight’s episode of LOST, this cryptic message pops up on the screen: “Due to a loss of signal, a portion of your recording has been lost”.
“No pun intended,” Sunny said, smiling.
I, on the other hand, was in no mood to find the humor in the situation.
Here’s the really frustrating part: American Idol was recording at the same time on our dual tuner. Not a problem at all. Recorded all 60 minutes of the episode. Every Paula-Abdul-lip-synching minute of it. It’s just frustrating that the DVR records every second of a show that’s 58 minutes of filler but it whiffs on the one show I legitimately care about. UGH!
What’s really weird is that the background screen when the “Due to loss of signal” screen popped up was the On Demand order screen verifying that we had ordered the latest pay-per-view WWE wrestling event. The really weird part: it was all in Spanish.
Now that I think about it, it’s been a while since you know who decided to pay us a visit. Perhaps this helps explain this weird happening, though. Now I guess I know what Casper is doing while he drinks: he’s watching pay-per-view Mexican wrestling on my couch.
Look, can’t I just pick up a copy of this and we’ll call it even, OK?
Heaven help us if Casper and our DVR have teamed up against us.
Hey, wait a minute: what if this wasn’t the work of Jackson after all? What if the little guy is just a patsy for the work of a nefarious little ghoul instead? Maybe we owe Jackson an apology…
Hmm…there’s some strange goings on here at the Bybee house.
