    ^ edit lol we're on the same page

    You know you watch too much TV when you need to upgrade to a four tuner model, I'm finding times when the two isn't enough.

    When's Agent Carter airing? Right after Arrow?

    If the schedule is true, then good marketing on WB's part (as opposed to Once Upon a Time in Wonderland). I imagine a lot of cross over audience

    I wonder if Firestorm will ever show up.

    Agent Carter will air in Shield's timeslot while it is on break. Different network and night from Arrow.

    Wherever you go, there you are.
    Arrow is on Wednesday on the CW. Agents of SHIELD will air at 9pm on Tuesdays on ABC. Agent Carter will air in the same timeslot when Agents of SHIELD takes its mid-season break.

    I feel your pain. Between my wife and I, there are quite a few shows we are unable to record. TWC is supposed to be coming out with a 6 tuner DVR. I hope it happens before this fall.

    Worse yet is the fact that the networks keep timeshifting the shows by about 1 to 2 minutes past the hour. So if I am recording shows at 8pm and 9pm on one channel and a third show starts at 9pm on another channel, I get a scheduling conflict because of that _one_ minute of overlap from the 8pm show.

    I just torrent the episode a day or so after it airs. That's how pretty much everyone I know watches TV these days. It's a major pain in the ass to watch TV live.

    We have a 4-tuner Tivo Premiere - I don't care when things are on anymore and I try to pad an extra minute when I can.

    You might want to watch the talk of torrenting Kelthaz. It's frowned upon here.

    That's where On Demand cable can help. Or the networks' websites or Hulu, although you may have to wait a week or more to see an episode there.

    I used to keep a VCR hooked up to a second branch of the cable as a backup, but my new DVR/cable box is too sensitive to handle having a VCR plugged in as well as a TV (it creates some kind of signal feedback), so I had to stop doing that.

    The cable here is all digital, so you can't just hook up a vcr anymore. I have resorted to the on demand on occasion, but it annoyse me that the fastfoward is disabled. If I wanted to watch the commercials I'd just watch it live. Network websites help too, but I would prefer if the cable company just deployed DVR's with a higher number of tuners.

    Well I was smiling through that trailer but am very pro Flash. Loved the tornado running bit as it is classic Flash. I guess I will have to live with powered rogues though but hopefully it is done well. The Reverse Flash killing Barrys mom has great promise for a super speed running battle. Cant wait!

    Yeah, seems that way. Which is fine by me, as it should allow for a lot more fun interaction. And the idea of an outgoing character like this having a support team certainly makes a lot more sense than a loner like Green Arrow, I think.

    Hooking the VCR up to your digital cable box still works just fine. However going from HD to VCR quality is kinda unacceptable.

    The less characters 'in the know' the less true interactions there can be. Eventually you start to wonder about the intelligence of some of these people if you can't suspend disbelief enough.

    But if you have the VCR hooked to the cable box, will that allow you to tape a third channel? I would think you'd be limited to whatever channel you tune the cable box to. Which completely defeats the purpose.

    Loner? Did you see how many people helped Ollie in the season finale? And most of them knew who he was under the mask.

    Actually I haven't watched in quite a while. I was just going by my general impression of the character from early on, and from how the character has typically been portrayed in the comics and cartoons.
