    I'm behind on so many shows I can't even begin to list them all...

    The last (entire) seasons of:
    Psych
    Eureka
    Doctor Who
    American Pickers
    Mythbusters
    Pawn Stars

    I just deleted Project Runway unseen because we just don't have time.

    And I'm about 40-50 eps behind on Ellen.

    I've stopped watching any show that has 2 hour long episodes. It has really helped clear up the backlog.

    Things on HBO and/or SHO you can catch up on anytime with on demand. Just caught up with Weeds myself after re-activating SHO for Dexter and Homeland.

    May not want to bother with Revolution either. I think I made it 15 minutes into the pilot and deleted the SP and all 3 eps I had on back log.

    Even knowing something about SOA you didn't want to know won't reduce the impact of actually watching it that much. Trust me....:(

    I'm sure it won't. But I haven't even watched the first episode so I'll just be crying into my pillow from the get go here!

    I am mostly caught up on the current shows. Maybe only a couple of days behind. I DO have 47 episodes of Breaking Bad which I may or may not get to eventually. But it's October and baseball post season starts, so I will fall WAY behind again, and maybe catch up by Christmas.

    May not? Not an option, sorry. We just finished through S04 on Netflix. It is an amazing show, just amazing. Certainly one of the best things out there. Of course, I won't tell you not to watch Yankee baseball. :D

    It's been difficult for me to keep up with new new shows, plus returning shows. It's only going to get worse when more returning shows come back (when will Gossip Girl come back? It will be the final season!!). All this travel is killing me. I fear I'll run out of space when I'm in Ohio three straight weeks (again!!) starting the last week in October and going through the second week in November.

    Maybe I need to pare out some new shows. I'll get a second look at a few this weekend. Maybe I'll be able to drop one or two. Of course, there is still a show that has yet to air.

    well unless you have TBs on your tivo, you can d/l all the stuff to your computer and watch 'later' on, ...then in the dead time and summer you can have a blast,

    i watched all seasons of boardwalk and lost girl over summer and it really meant more to see them close together vs waiting week after week. i almost prefer to do that but cannot due to time being so short

    As discussed in a couple of threads over the summer, I'm not sold on Breaking Bad. I'm just starting S2, and I have found it kind of boring actually. So this is something I'll give a shot if I have time. Also working my way through Mad Men which I like a bit better because I like the period piece, but that's on Netflix.

    To each his own. I can see why some might like it. Just not really my cup of tea.

    Well with FIOS, we can't transfer any HBO shows to the PC for storage via TTG which really sucks. We did that with Boardwalk Empire. (Actually watched the first two seasons this summer.)

    What TiVo needs to do is figure out a way that we can watch multiple shows on a TV at the same time and still have it be a meaningful experience. Too much to watch!

    There are times when I think we would be better off with going back to the pre-vcr days. If you missed a show, oh well, that's life. TiVo has definitely increased the time in front of the TV trying to, wanting to, and usually succeeding in eventually watching every episode of a TV show. I mean did I really need to watch every episode of Ugly Betty or Desperate Housewives? (Scrubs was a definite yes!)

    I haven't been behind like this before, but I realize my TV viewing is gonna be cut way short starting really soon.

    My plan is to buy another really large hard drive and simply start archiving more shows. And in the summer, I'll be playing catch-up quite a bit.

    I'll have to prioritize more. Great shows I'll watch asap. The only reality TV I watch is Survivor and that'll be same day viewing. But lots of stuff is gonna get behind.

    I'm just gonna have to learn to deal.

    There was an S2 of Shark? I thought it got canceled before the end of S1. Either way, why would you save old episodes of a pointless procedural show like that?

    Yeah it's not a space issue. I have tons of space and yeah I can always download. It's a time problem. I apparently do stuff other than TV although for the life of me I do not know what. I have no life!

    Ha I feel the same way and it seems like I'll never catch up. I have around 275 unwatched shows including a few movies and a few concerts and I'm now at 75% used on my 2TB drive. I still have shows from last fall to watch.

    I still have the first dozen or so "Lost" episodes on one of my Tivos. I watched the first couple of eps years ago and stopped for a while and before I knew it there was a crapload of them and I didn't feel like sitting thru multiple eps. I should probably delete them.

    I have the last 4 eps of Lost on my 1 GB HD attached to my HR21. Even though I have the DVD for the whole series, I can't bring myself to delete it :)

    I have 8 DVR tuners available at any one time, so I pretty much record everything. It's just too much pressure. I have 20 something episodes of Grimm and the same amount of Once Upon a Times, 14 Strike Backs, 15 Bosses, 14 2.5 Mens, 13 Leverages, 10 Touches, 19 Damages, 12 The Firms and 22 Ringers. I won't even attempt to list how many shows I have recorded that I've managed to keep under 10 episodes. Which ones should I axe? I need help, please!
