Lenny Briscoe has TiVo

So I’m watching tonight’s premier of Law & Order: Trial By Jury and in one of Jerry Orbach’s first scenes (which, sadly, is one of his last scenes), and Lenny pops out with this line:

“No, I got TiVo! You push the magic button and there’s no commercials.”

If Lenny Briscoe has TiVo, that’s a ringing endorsement. ;-)

    You can find out how many hours a day Law & Order is on at When is Law & Order On?

    NBC is a big investor in TiVo, they’ve mentioned TiVo before on L&O, and I think they had a TiVo on Friends. TiVo’s ex-president Marty Yudkovitz was an executive vice-president for NBC before joining the company.

    But yeah, I picked up on that too :)

    You missed Law & Order: Crime & Punishment, a documentary summer replacement series from 2002 with San Diego prosecutors.

    As I was passing through the kitchen doing a chore I spotted Jerry O on the TV and paused. He social engineers some info out of this girl and comments about having TiVo (and continues the public perception that TiVo removes all commercials). This was about all I watched of the show and what a cowinkydink that I happened to see the few seconds with the TiVo comment.

    Well, he does say you have to push the magic button. I guess Lennie has the 30 second skip enabled. ;-)

  • obiwan4242

    He just doesn’t come across as the Easter Egg type of guy. So now we can talk to our non-TiVo friends about the magic button. LOL And what other magical goodness can we expect from this button. Only time will tell. :)

    Eh. Just goes to show how one thing is said, but different people hear more than one thing. I didn’t parse anything about TiVo ‘removing’ commercials from that statement.
