In my opinion, it was a VERY interesting concept that was almost totally squandered on a hopelessly maudlin and completely predictable love story. They could have done so much more with it!

Too much running. Not enough adjusting.

So far the iPhone app has been very reliable about indicating whether or not there's going to be a free preview -- that is, it lets me set recordings on premium channels during free preview times, and doesn't let me set a recording at times when there isn't one happening. It didn't indicate a free preview for this weekend, so...

It can be free for the next 5 years, as far as I'm concerned. Their new collective bargaining agreement did anything to fix the inequities in how players can pretty much dictate where they play. If your not part of a half dozen markets, you have no chance to win. The rest of the teams draft the players, and as soon as their entry level contracts end, they bolt to the big markets. What happened in Cleveland, with Lebron James has turned me off of the NBA. I used to watch it casually, but plan on boycotting the league for the forseable future.
