    In addition to all of the above (too many shows, not enough time, mistakenly whacking Ray Donovan, etc), somewhat like hoffer & Buffy, I recorded all 64 episodes of Veronica Mars. They keep winking at me every time I go to Now Playing, trying to seduce me into giving up my life and watching the entire series, start to finish.

    Yeah, like I have time for that :eek:

    Can you elaborate without spoilers? I thought the concept of the show sounded cool, and I have the first three episodes saved. But reviews were mediocre at best, and there's been very little discussion of the show here, so I figured it was kind of a dud and had made the decision not to bother with it.

    I let go of Once Upon a Time, Revenge, and Nashville last week. In the great hard drive debacle of 2012-2013, I let OUaT and Revenge build up and still had the entire seasons of both of them. I realized I didn't really care about them that much, so I deleted them all. Nashville, I had watched the first 7-8 episodes, but in the same hard drive debacle, I lost 2 episodes from the middle of the season and they were not available On Demand or from Usenet, and I finally just gave up that I'd ever find the episodes I needed. I also realized I didn't really care about it anyway. :)

    I may end up also dumping the entire seasons of The Following and Hannibal. I have only watched the pilot of The Following and none of Hannibal.

    I'm still cleaning up shows from last season, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I still have 2 Vampire Diaries, 4 Hart of Dixie, 4 NCIS, 15 NCIS:LA (oops, ok that one is still backed up), and 5 Zero Hour. Plus a couple of other summer shows that I watch, but I am up to date on those (Under the Dome, Extreme Weight Loss and Who Do You Think You Are?).

    I'm a little bummed I'm doing so much catchup this summer, as I had planned to watch a bunch of streaming shows... I have been paying for HBO almost a whole year and have not had a chance to watch one single show on it. Plus shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, etc. Maybe I'll be able to watch them this year. Hopefully we won't have another hard drive fiasco.

    I also have every episode of season 2 of Once Upon a Time. Also only watched the pilot of The Following and have the rest of that. I watched a couple Hannibal and liked it and have those.

    I did give up on a couple shows like Being Human. I wasn't really into this last season and deleted the last 6 episodes. I should give up on Nikita. I have 2 full seasons of that. Also have over 2 seasons of Dexter. :eek:

    as long as you arent one of those 'accuracy' people, the following is decent entertainment (like jack bauer cant get across LA in 10 minutes in traffic kind of accuracy). i'm on ep 11 of zero hour and i gotta say, i wouldnt have missed out on anything if i never watched it at all.


    i have an entire season of joe schmo and am really thinking about ditching it. any thoughts on that?

    I loved Joe Schmo. I'd put it ahead of all the shows you previously said you were behind on, especially the teeny-bopper ABC Family stuff.

    You may get "lucky" and accidentally kill a drive you used for Tivo downloads.. That's what happened to me. Though I do have another identical drive and hope to see if I can some eon try to recover some stuff from it. The partition map of all things was erased, so it seems difficult if not impossible to rescue things even if I was able to dd a bunch of the drive (with tons of I/O errors of course).

    Though *much* of the stuff was music TV show downloads and other stuff, I have also been catching up on (on-network) reruns of some of this season's shows, like Arrow & Body of Proof. But I know I missed a whole bunch of Once Upon a Time and a few others.. but yeah, mostly not remembering what I had on the drive helps. heh..

    But now I have a 4 TB drive as a replacement..

    I caught a glimpse of some scene and it seemed possibly interesting. Till then, though, my opinion of the show was shaped entirely by the cast and I have zero interest in [most of] that cast, maybe less -- at least in the ones they push. And it always sours me on a show when I have to listen to crap like "If you liked Dexter then you have to stay tuned for..." because that's a bunch of BS. :)

    Of the shows listed, I'd prioritize Orphan Black.

    I've been away on vacation so I have ton saved up. I'm not a "watch the whole season in one sitting type" So I have 2-3 episodes of a lot of shows waiting for me. Royal Pains, Rookie Blue, Suits, Camp, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs and a couple of other shows I'm forgetting I'm sure. Yesterday did a marathon catch up on Big Brother and The Daily Show. Supposed to be a rainy Saturday and no ball game until tomorrow night for me, so I'll probably catch up on those shows. Also have a bunch of movies, and for about the 4th summer in a row, started a rewatch of Lost, but I'm sure I won't get past S1 :)

    I am finally caught up on everything from last season and this summer, with the exception of the last 6 episodes of NCIS:LA (the second half of the backdoor pilot for the spinoff and then 5 more regular episodes).

    I may get to watch some Netflix stuff before new stuff starts!

    As I posted a while ago, I ditched a few full seasons of shows that I had (Once Upon a Time, Nashville, Revenge) and I am only recording a couple shows this summer (Zero Hour, Under the Dome, Extreme Weight Loss, and Who Do You Think You Are?). So, I have not really been adding much since mid-May. I watch a couple hours a day maybe 3-4 days a week... so I have been slowly chipping away. :)

    I guess I do still have full seasons of The Following and Hannibal, but I doubt I'll ever end up watching them. They are probably on their way to the delete bin, too.

    Oops, and I just remembered we have 2 episodes still of Defiance. I have to wait and watch that one when SO feels like watching them, and he's not always in the mood.

    I still haven't watched season 4 of Justified. I don't know why I'm waiting. I have all the episodes saved. I did watch the first episode right when it aired, then I went on vacation and got a few weeks behind. Now it's like this thing that I want to watch but don't want to get sucked into. Bah! I miss Raylan.
