I am a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
My girlfriend at the time (now my wife of 8 years) were watching "All Good Things..." (original broadcast back in '94) and in the middle of it, a friend of hers showed up with her boyfriend to show off the motorcycle he just purchased.
We were polite and talked with them out in the driveway for 15 or 20 minutes. When we got back inside, I refused to simply start watching the show after missing so much. We waited until the end, rewound the tape (what would we have done without a VCR....funny, I can't remember the last time I watched or recorded anything with it) and watched "All Good Things..." from beginning to end. Hard to believe that was over 12 years ago now!
To this day, I don't care for my wife's friend or the idiot with the motorcycle that she ended up marrying.
