When I was a kid, I remember rushing home after school to watch my favorite cartoons like He-Man and Thundercats (I had a big brother so I rarely watched girly stuff). If I didn't make it home in time, I wouldn't catch the beginning of the show - or I might miss it altogether! Those were the days before we had cable TV and we only had 6 or so channels to choose from and we had to actually get up and walk to the TV to change the channel because we didn't have a fancy-schmancy "clicker." Eventually, we got cable TV and later a VCR. Finally, we could record things and watch them whenever we wanted - as long as we remembered to put in a blank tape and set the VCR to record. Fast-forward to adulthood and TiVo. Oh, how I have loved my TiVo!
