Month to Month

All this time, I thought I was recording F/X's "Over There" (Stephen Bocho's Iraq series) on my VCR.

Yes, I'm still analog that way.

It had actually caused me some concern, since 1. I had an ever-growing backlog of unwatched episodes, combined with 3 weeks worth of unwatched "Battlestar Galactica", and 2. I had thought that the tape rolled over, and recorded over the Forrest Griffith/Stephan Bonner UFC fight and the PBS showing of "Whale Rider."

Last night, I rewound the tape and settled in for some hard-core, brain-melting television watching.

Hrm, the 15+minute fight was still there. Fast forward a bit. So was the movie.

Now, either something spontaneously happened where you can compress 8+ hours of footage on a 6-hour SLP VHS tape, or I did something wrong.

I checked the timer settings.

Battlestar Galactica was fine.

Over There was also fine. Weekly, Wednesday night. See, starting 8/31?


So I was off a month.
