Premiering This Week


Gentlemen, in your honor, my wife, Wendy, and I cut the cord with Verizon today. We cancelled our Cable TV, but kept our FiOS internet service, so we still have one cord, but it's the good one. And Verizon said we're "welcome" to keep 13 local TV channels for free. Ha, I guess we don't get to keep the UHF channels. :-)
Now we're saving $70 a month. Oops, just found out that we're only saving $65 a month, because, "dear valued customer," it's actually $5 more per month than they said. Oh, and we also have to pay an additional $10 to return our DVR. (I feel like I just made a deal with some guy on Canal Street.)
We will continue to feast from our AppleTV, where we watch Netflix and iTunes... and podcasts, podcasts, podcasts. So we're ready for your next show!
Happy Holidays to you both. Thanks for all the years of information and inspiration. Excited to see what you guys will do next.

See what you can do when the TV network is NOT in the USA? <sigh> 180 channels, $15/month, 8-day replay period without needing a DVR (they record & store everything), inside home/outside home, looks great if you were an international sports/soccer fan.

Fun Facts

  • This is the first episode of Cordkillers. It was recorded one week after the final episode of Frame Rate and following the exact same format with the same segment names. This apparently did not please Leo, who (on air) accused Tom of "stealing the show".
  • Everything that Tom, Brian, and Justin watched this week was online-only content.
