Tivo-spotting

"Portlandia", IFC, season 3 episode 2, episode title "Missionaries", segment title "Spoiler Alert".

Portlandia-style dinner conversation

http://www.ifc.com/portlandia/videos...-spoiler-alert

About 1 minute into segment: "oh, we haven't watched it yet, we Tivo'ed it"

There's a thread I'd forgotten about. Guess TiVo-spotting isn't as cool as it used to be.

Tivo just isn't spotted anymore.

The last time I can even recall Tivo being mentioned on a TV show was when Liz and James Marsden discussed on 30 Rock. They talked about how cute the Tivo sounds "used to be" and implied that neither of them actually owned a Tivo anymore. I found it to be a pretty embarassing moment for Tivo. I wish I could find a video of the clip.

There was an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm that featured a tivo and a technician that came to set up the Tivo.

I watched a show this last weekend on the History Channel called "101 Gadgets That Changed The World" and DVR came in at #92. They said DVR but it showed a woman with 2 kids and they had a Tivo Premiere sitting there. They never did use the word Tivo.

I saw an advertisement for Comcast and they had a pile of electronic equipment, and a Tivo Philips Series 1 was on the pile.

That had to be 4 or 5 years ago.

I still like the "Simpsons" episode where they fooled people into thinking they were sitting on the remote during the Couch Gag.

Sleepwalk With Me.
There are two scenes involving a TiVo. S2DT in one, I believe.
