For some reason or another, I really like the new Joss Whedon show Firefly. I seem to be the only one, considering the fact that it was beaten out by America's Funniest Home Videos last week. Yes, it's a Space Western. And yes, the trappings of spaceships and lasers have been largely unnecessary so far. But there's something about the crew dynamic, and the hack-need sense of loyalty and honor (among thieves) that I can really get into.
Anyhow, my point is, I've been recording the show, and missed two episodes so far, including last week's, since I screwed up programming my VCR.
Well, now thanks to IRC, a CD burner, and a DVD player that can also play VCDs, I have those two episodes, in pretty good quality, too.
