My parents fail at television.


My dad just said, "I think this Wednesday's was a new Veronica Mars, but tonight they're showing a long movie instead of re-airing it." I thought I remembered wisdomeagle saying this past Wednesday's VMars was a repeat (she did) and some digging found that she was probably right. TVGuide had a blurb for an episode which is probably "Versatile Toppings" for 2/15, but everything else says there's no new VMars until 3/8 (and lists "Versatile Toppings" as the 3/8 episode).

So okay it was partly TVGuide's fault as clearly changes got made after they went to press (as sometimes happens -- witness its opening page for the Feb.20-26 issue -- "Ladies Figure Skating Free Skate, Thursday 2/23, 8/7c [...] Could Michelle Kwan freeze them both out with an unexpected win?") but I still maintain that one should tape the regularly scheduled airing for watching at one's leisure rather than depending upon a re-broadcast. [In his defense, upn38.com heralds "Veronica Mars: Wednesday @ 9pm and Saturday @ 10 pm" -- though the upn.com version merely says "wednesdays 9pm et/pt"]

[Edit: I'm amused at the kinds of posts that get fast flurries of responses.]
