Genre Migration

My father’s recently shifted his TV watching patterns away from “Hitler’s Secret Wizard Coven” to “Wipe Out”.  I first thought this was a bad thing, on review it’s caused some positive changes.

1) My dad’s learned how to use the DVR
2) He laughs more
3) I no longer deal with Tim Taylor-esque pidgins of things like “did you know that at Gaudalcanal captured GIs created a Gatling gun that used weasel teeth as ammunition?”

I’m most excited about the first as if this trend continues I look forward to showing my dad how to use BitTorrent to get back episodes of Takeshi’s Castle.
