    Actually, I don't care about Fear Factor that much, but it was still cool to see.

    Good job, Shanan. :)

    :eek:

    How did I miss this? I recall her asking us about the show some time ago, but don't remember what the details were.

    Whoa! You guys beat me to it. Here's what I was writing up and you posted before I could! Actually I wnated to post a couple of days ago, but had some "real life" upsets.... Sorry for the delay. Do not like disappointing my TiVo peeps. :(


    Okay, so I have a little surprise for you: a mini-show made especially for TiVo subscribers—available now on TiVo Central!

    Back in August, Fear Factor’s executive producer Matt Kunitz called me with an invitation I couldn’t refuse: an exclusive two-day, behind-the-scenes visit to get the first-look at some of the new season’s scream-worthy scenarios.

    We also unearthed (ahem) some fascinating “little-did-you-knows” (even for the non-Fear Factor fan -- THANK YOU to all the TiVo Community friends who suggested great questions!!) and my word, did we ever talk TiVo.

    So join me in the premiere episode of “TiVo Takes On… ” as I take you on a twisted tour de fright through the “backstage” labyrinth of one of the longest running and most successful reality series ever. And don’t worry—we have plenty of TiVo fun along the way!

    Don’t be scared (Well… if you have a really squeamish tummy, maybe you don’t want to watch, but I was 100% fine when I was there and I usually can’t watch an episode myself!): Select the menu item on TiVo Central that says “TiVo Takes On… FEAR!”


    And stay tuned for what TiVo takes on next.

    What kind of detail do people want? It was right there on my main Tivo Central Screen this morning.

    Well since it is not on my TC menu yet that would have been the detail I needed to know where to look for it ;)

    Will this be coming to us poor DirecTV TiVo owners?

    Probably not!

    It should have JUST popped up this morning.
    NOT a yellow star promo. It'll show up in the middle with a little TiVo logo next to it.

    And ... unfortunately, I don't think it's going to DIRECTV boxes.

    That whole "you're their customer, not ours" thing.
    Grrr.

    Was the video downloaded, or recorded late at night off of Teleworld?

    you should really think about making this (and future episodes) a video Podcast.

    Really, you should. There are people out there who would love to see it. :)

    As a Fear Factor fan (not to mention I'm convinced I can beat these pansies in any water stunt) I dug the featurette. I also thought this was Shanan's best performance yet!

    Not that anyone asked but I have a suggestion for future "TiVo Takes On..." installments - It ended somewhat abruptly... how about re-running the opening animation or creating another one... at the very least give me more time to hit the Thumbs Up button. By the time I grabbed the remote, I was back at the menu.

    Anyway, I wasn't sure if this thing was advertising TiVo or Fear Factor but I enjoyed it regardless. These types of bits and movie trailers I'll watch all day and night. No more car commercials though. ;)

    Didnt show up in my TC but I found it in showcases, as GO BEHIND THE SCENES then when u select that it says TiVo Takes On...Fear! above....

    good stuff

    edit: was it ever answered? dl'd or tivo'd? my quality doesnt seem that great...
    to add to dave's suggestions...why not make it like its a show i recorded? sure its only 10 min long but if i want to check somthing else out and i leave it halfway through then go back in it starts all over...maybe just start where i left it, or maybe some markers that i can jump to?

    still good stuff

    REally great feedback, you guys.
    Keep it coming.
    Looking forward to evolving this to something VERY TiVo and more fun!

    I'm sure you could tell the FF guys were definitely into it and the producer was sure other shows would love to have us on, too!

    I think it was Teleworld, but I'm not positive. I don't know all the workings behind the TiVo scenes, apparently, ha!

    Not on my TiVo..

    :( :(

    Is this a Series 2 (stand alone) only thing? It's either that, or my TiVo was busy recording something else when the Teleworld thing came on.

    I'm really bummed out. :(

    Looks like a Teleworld recording to me.
    And since that seems to be Pax in my area, it could look better. (I think that Adelphia over compresses Pax).

    It wasn't on my Series 1 but was on my Series 2.
    Interesting segment and I don't even like Fear Factor. Of course, the fact that it was at the Bates Motel set at Universal does add to the appeal.

    Of course, now I realize that Shanan was in LA and didn't even want to have dinner with the peeps. :(

    (Probably out doing the town with Joe Rogan, grumble, grumble, grumble)


    ;)

    I noticed a Teleworld program was scheduled to air on Discovery last night so on a whim I set a recording. The Fear Factor program was one of the clips that aired.

    Interestingly, none of the Teleworld content made into my TiVo's Showcases menu. One of the clips was TV Guide's "Watch This" and I haven't seen that on the TiVo for months...
