I've been working with big companies in one form or another for 2 decades. The number of times I've seen pure, unadulterated genius in decision-making, is few and far between. Much, much, much more likely that genius gets a chance to see daylight at a small company. For all sorts of reasons.
But this isn't a rant. This is a foot-stomping, hand-clapping, head-shaking kudos to NBC. That big network television dinosaur.
Why? Because they let me get 4 free pilots: Bionic Woman, Chuck, Life, and Journeyman on my Tivo.
Not when they're broadcast. But NOW. For FREE. I'm watching them tonight. With no commercials. Find out more here: http://www.tivo.com/mytivo/domore/movieandtvdownloads/freepilots.html
This is simply elegant and breath-taking; I'm very impressed that someone (a) thought of it, (b) got it approved by senior management, and (c) actually DID it. I can list all the reasons why this is genius, but I'm sure you can too.
Amazon Unbox. Unreal. I ordered them here, from the office, and they'll be waiting for me on my friendly Tivo when I'm done playing tennis and sitting down for dinner with a glass of wine. I'm gonna start loving TV again...
