This is tv related, but it is a peeve, so I'm posting it here.
There is tv I watch, and tv I tape. I usually tape my favourites because I prefer to watch them on the weekend during my down time (and also ff through commercials) rather than catch them on the fly during the week when I'm trying to get other things done.
So I generally end up with a big stockpile of videos by season's end that I watch throughout the summer. Last week I reached the end of last season's taping only to find that I had somehow recorded over the tape of the final episodes of a number of shows - the series finale of Veronica Mars, the last episode of Criminal Minds with Mandy Patinkin, and a few other shows that I won't admit to the world at large that I watch (one of which I somehow screwed up taping last year, so two years in a row I missed a cliffhanger).
I am so annoyed.
