I didn't know the BBC did a Dirk Gently series. I love Douglas Adams sense of humor and really enjoyed the books. I see that it wasn't renewed. (Not surprised, but disappointed.) I have already started downloading the a torrent of the season. Thanks!

This will of course bump a bunch of shows further down the queue now!

How long do the network sites (or Hulu) keep shows for? I'm concerned that by the time I catch up on what I have on the DVR I won't be able to access the other episodes I missed online.
Torrents are your friend. Given your watching patterns, you really should already be using this method for storing the shows you're behind on.

Most of them only keep the previous 5 episodes online.

I like Dexter too much to skip a season. Even if it is a bad one.

Still haven't started watching it though.

Have started watching Arrested Development off Netflix again. Third time through the series. Actually, I'm already well into season 3. Doing this and my DVR is half filled with shows I need to watch.

Calgon, take me away!!

I kinda cheat though. If I get more than like 10 episodes of a show on my DVR, I delete them and download the shows to my PC off usenet. I can stream stuff off my PC to my Blu-ray player. So, it really doesn't look any different. Plus, someone was nice enough to remove the commercials.

I've got multiple seasons of shows sitting on my PC that I don't know if I'll ever get to.

Nope, as stated in numerous threads, I don't trust them, and the legality of them is dubious at best. Seen more of my share of virii (viruses?) coming from torrent downloads.

DirecTV has some on demand from the networks, Hulu, network websites, I'll find what I need, or, and maybe this is even better, it will force me to cut out shows that I am just watching for the sake of watching at this point, like Nikita and a couple of others.

Five would do. If I have power soon (maybe tonight...trucks working on my street as we speak) I could start catching up with whats on the DVR and then watch the rest online. I'm glad I bought the HDMI adapter for my iPad and my phone does HDMI as well, so it shouldn't' be too much of a hassle watching stuff. I'll just have to go through the history of shows missed on my DVR and then figure out when to watch them.

I'm behind again. I've been doing non-TV stuff the last few evenings, recorded a couple extra shows, and totally forgot about a show that's back from a hiatus. I've got at least 4 shows that I intend to watch, and haven't yet.

I think if mine were to die I would be sad for the shows that I have saved for a couple years on it. Including the TiVo that I bought from you that you got from Allie that still had shows on it that neither of you remembered.
You still have shows from when we had it?! I have to know what they are!

This is true. But, if there are legal (and free or inexpensive) alternatives to doing something illegal, why bother? If it's because there's no commercials, well, I've dealt with commercials most of my adult life, I can deal with them and help support the fact they are giving me an alternative when I just can't watch or record a show using my DVR.

It's not that difficult to watch. It's more difficult to just figure out what I missed. I'm going to go through the history on my DVR and try and figure it out tonight.

I am caught up now, but tonight is gonna be challenging...

Six hours of shows I regularly watch, plus the Firefly special. AND... the Texans play Chicago on Sunday Night Football, two 7-1 teams. I'm not a big football fan, but even I gotta keep an eye on this game.

Time to get to work!

I'm about as caught up as I get on a Tuesday. Which means I have one major show and several miscellaneous ones that I plan to watch, a number of shows that I might see, and a whole bleep-load of shows that I know I won't get to before they go poof.

One of my "goals" for my week off next week (we get the whole Thanksgiving week off) is to watch a ton of stuff on my Tivo. Heck, my P4 is only a few weeks old and in the high 80s of percent full.. There are a COUPLE of things in HD on there, so they took up a lot of space. (I was playing with recording in HD since I had some space..) Some things (talk show bits) I can transfer off to computer when I have some time/free up some space on the computer drive.

Thanksgiving to New Years is traditionally my chance to catch up on everything that got backed up during baseball postseason (and usually the odd hockey game). This year with 8 days of no power thanks to Sandy, I'm DOUBLY backed up. I also have a ton of movies and documentaries that I enjoy watching saved up as well. I'd love to get caught up so I can turn in this DVR since it has a wonky ethernet port.

I hate that all the Competition shows are two hours now. They simply can't hold my attention for that long. We've taken to simply watching one hour of each one and then catching the last hour the next night. Unfortunately, this has created quite a huge backlog.

We are still about 4 episodes (that'd be about 8 HOURS) behind on "The Voice" and "Dancing with the Stars". I guess we must like X Factor the most because it's the only one we are current with.

I told my wife, we'll be glad we have this backlog when the Holidays hit.
