I have Elementary set to always record an extra hour. With more tuners than channels I care to watch, I have no conflicts, especially past 11pm.

Since I've done that, I haven't missed the end of...

Of course, the skip intro button comes at a time when full credit intros have become so rare, they dropped the category from the Emmy's.

Personally, I like a good intro. Some of the best ones for...

Except each one had a voting thumb, which opens it up to far more than like/not like.

If they both enthusiastically like it, that's two thumbs up. Based on their personalities and general likes...

My nit with the star ratings on Netflix was there was no "neutral" rating. Their rating system was:

1 - Hated it
2 - Didn't like it
3 - Liked it
4 - Really liked it
5 - Loved it.

That...

Yes....the 1880s.

My house was built in 1875. I usually joke that when I say my house was built "after the war", I have to specify which one.

But as far as the age of the residents, most are...

Yeah, I don't get it either.

Channel Zero was completely obtuse and dull as a wooden spoon. My guess is, it was cheap as hell to produce compared to Incorporated.
