Yeah, it's weird, but I spend the WHOLE TV season trying to catch up on shows I recorded all week, and then, by the time I catch up, the cycle starts all over again. Now, I do enjoy first run shows and all that, but, there's a certain freedom to off season viewing. Feel like a movie? Why not? Feel like watching an old series that you have on DVD? Go for it. With less clutter on my DVR I can really watch what I feel like. I will say, I'm the type that doesn't like to be 3 or 4 episodes behind on a show I like, nor to I like to wait for the end of the season and watch a marathon of a certain show. One reason for this....I like to discuss my favorite shows here, and it's impossible to do if you have 10 episodes saved up.
