Question: So now that you've seen more than the average person, what's your recommendation for dealing with the Wednesday/9 pm nightmare this fall? Seriously, how do you choose?

Answer: Allow me to introduce you to my friend FauxVo. He's like TiVo, only uglier, cheaper and slightly less reliable. Among the many wonderful things my friend can do is allow you to watch one program live (say, Veronica Mars) while recording another (Lost, perhaps?) for viewing later on. You guys should go grab a drink and get acquainted.
