The dvr is set to record so I don't miss an episode. Got my own tv as a child just a few years before NOVA debuted on PBS. Had my own antenna to help pull in the UHF signal. Hopefully so of you know what I'm talking about! It had colored snow, but I watch and absorbed as much as I could. Tremendous show.
