How can I see every season of The Amazing Race?

How can my wife and I watch every season of The Amazing Race? We've become hopelessly hooked on this show. We've downloaded the last three seasons at iTunes. We've grabbed seasons one and seven from Netflix. But there are still ten seasons of sheer awesomeness remaining. Is there a way to get them? (Legal methods preferred.)

What's My Best Option to Record Analogue and Digital TV?

I want to be able to record TV shows for both analogue and digital TV. I've done some research and have figured out that I basically have three options; a PVR, a PlayTV peripheral for my PS3 and last of all, a TV Capture Card for my laptop. I've done some research on all of these and have worked out some pros and cons but can't make up my mind. Help me decide what the best option is. [more inside]

A piece of fruit on prime time?

Fruit on TV? I remember someone saying something to the effect of, "If we put a piece of fruit on television every night, it will become a national icon". Who said that? And I think that someone actually did it (SNL?), did THAT happen?

Where can I find this documentary about the voice?

I'm trying to find a DVD/watchable online version of a documentary I saw probably saw about five years or so ago about the history of the voice in popular music. I think it might have been simply called The Voice, and was probably shown on the BBC or Channel 4 (although I think it was American-made). One episode featured harmony groups like the Four Freshmen and the Beach Boys. With such a generic name, Google is failing to help me find any details on this one. Does anybody know what it was actually called, and where I can see this again?

The Player TV show... ? And other shows that never made it past the pilot stage.

So I just watched the (terrible) pilot for the 2003 tv show L.A. Confidential. I've also heard Michael Tolkin talk about the tv show for The Player, which I've never been able to find. My questions are: where can I find The Player tv show and what other films have had failed tv shows not make it past the pilot stage?
