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.

Since you have such a big backlog of shows, I'd consider dropping Under the Dome and Defiance. They are both pretty bad. I've seen every episode of both of them, and to be honest, I have no idea why.

Moi aussi. I kept wanting those shows to improve. They didn't.

I seem to have hit the wall in terms of catching up. Earlier this summer I burned through a bunch of shows and went from about 12 items in the RD folder to over 60. Now it seems like I'm just maintaining. I can't seem to get over the hump of 70 hours of free space.

I've given up trying to catch up on some of my shows.

Dexter
Mad Men
Walking Dead
SoA
Mentalist
Burn Notice
So You Think You Can Dance
Modern Family
Big Bang Theory

An entire season or more behind on most of them. Sad because I considered some of these my favs. Guess not.

I'm mostly caught up....but, I fixed my issue with DD+ on Netflix and now, I have found a bunch of old series I'd like to explore there which MAY put me behind again. Especially some old Showtime stuff that I always wanted to see but I don't subscribe.

I have a bunch to watch - but most are ones where it's the same formula each week.

More than 5 each -
Criminal Minds
Mentalist
Arrow
Graceland
Chopped

Some I keep for a couple weeks to build up and then watch all in one night -
Suits
Royal Pains
Warehouse 13
Elementary

Some I watch instead of watching the others....
Quantum Leap is on 2x a day and I love to chill watching this. I know the episodes but still enjoy them. Haven't watched it in years so it's refreshing. It used to be "The Finder" and then "West Wing" I can put on anytime any season and be happy.

DVD tv shows -
I am working my way thru Time Tunnel. That's my "watch at lunch" show right now.

I noticed it was on Netflix the other day. As I never watched it the first go around, if I have some time, I might take a look.

Well, WW is really on netflix, but I have it at the top of my queue the same with The Finder. Just two favorites that I can watch anytime.

As for Suits - it is a big favorite of mine but I have found I really love to watch 2 or 3 in a row.

Watch it!!! I never watched it the first time around and started watching during christmas vacation last year. OMG. I couldn't stop. it was crack. It was blue meth. It was a 3 or 4 show a day addiction.

I love Suits as well. Very well written and I like the characters, even Harvey

As for WW, I am sure I will like it, but as with anything, finding time to watch is tough. I'm also concerned it might be somewhat dated by this point. I guess if I watch in the context of the era it was shown (Clinton years) then I could appreciated it more.

I didn't find it date - well not too much - some issues yes, but I looked at it as more about the characters with some very timely issues brought up.

Hey, if you don't have time, you could do it as a once a week show. Watch one episode a week for the next 7 years!

I own the entire series of West Wing - it is totally worth watching more than once.

The first 5 seasons (the Sorkin years) are especially good. Season 6 is the weakest, but they bounce back quite a bit to finish nicely in Season 7.

Overall, a GREAT show. I am a huge Sorkin fan, though, so their isn't much he does that I don't adore. This show is among his best.

LOL, well As much as I like Donna, I always dare to be different, so I've always had a "thing" for Rachel...LOL

I alwys think of Suits as kind of a 21st Century L.A. Law with the Mike not really a lawyer twist. I see Harvey as kind of the Corbin Berson character, and Lewis as Brackman. And I just dated myself hahaha.

For some reason I thought it was on before then. I guess the first 2 seasons were Clinton, the rest GWB. But I always kind of thought the administration on the show was sort of Clinton-y. Guess I should watch before I say that.

I didn't realize Sorkin left the show at some point.

I have this love/hate thing with Sorkin. I find his characters fascinating, and the story lines are good, but, his dialog cadences are SO annoying sometimes. And his patterns get so predictable after awhile. He'll make a point about something trivial, then the conversation goes on awhile, and it will end back on that same trivial point, even if it has little to do with how the conversation went. He did this on Sports Night (my first Sorkin show...loved that show), Studio 60 and now The Newsroom. And not one of his characters ever raises or lowers their voices. It's always some marathon speed talking kind of voice that drones on and on. But I always manage to get past it, because of the compelling characters and storylines.
