The other night it took nearly 90 minutes to watch a half hour show because the family of couch potatoes were simultaneously using a number of electronic devices and kept asking for rewinds.
What I need is a DVR that pauses when it detects inattention.
The first thing you'd notice is the silence
and a large pair of eyes superimposed on the screen image, glaring at each distracted viewer in turn.
Once all the heads are up, a track would play from the large audio selection:
- I DO hope we're not keeping you from anything!
- Why don't you share it with the rest of us if it's that good?
- This behavior...is unasseptable
before finally playing the show again.
And of course this idea is just another excuse to announce the latest update at http://bakers-half-dozen.blogspot.com
