Everything is out there. From the most profound to the most mundane, whatever I need to know when I need to know it.
Last week I set my DVR to record a series. I knew it was in re-runs and British. The DVR sucks in the sense it gives an original air date but not an episode number. The first episode I got was not called “Pilot”. At this point I had no idea whether I have the first, the sixth, or the eleventh.
So I toss the show title with episode list into a Google search. It pulls up several sites with episode titles and their dates. I could have just gone to imdb.com. Turns out I had the third. (Plus there are places offering to let me watch the series online.)
Probably I search too much instead of going to specific sites I know first.
There is something rewarding between hitting the button and seeing results. It feels so good.
