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.
At the same time with the competition shows I can quickly get through these shows, at least the results show. The performance shows I have finally learned the back story, training clips, etc. I don't care about and fast foward through that fluff.

No chance of us getting caught up anytime soon unless we completely ignore our children and watch TV straight through for the next month.

I'm mostly caught up. I'll have a few shows recording tonight and that should be it until New Years Day (Parenthood). Tonight is The League and Burn Notice.

I've been catching up on some documentaries, and I have the series Restless to watch (2 2 hour episodes). From that point on, I'll start to watch movies of which I have about 30 saved up on my DVR.

Not every night.

It's much much worse this year than it usually is because almost all of the shows that are full seasons plus a lot of the partial ones that have a lot of eps are on a TiVo that has a dying hard drive, so I've been offloading the shows all fall and so that we can replace the drive. Basically, every show in the list that is on either ABC, CW, or NBC is on the dying TiVo... CBS and FOX are on the TiVo that still works.

I have been procrastinating because I don't want to deal with Comcast after we replace the drive to re-pair the cablecards, and also I built up this huge backlog of stuff I needed to figure out how to encode properly with Handbrake so that we can stream them to the Xbox. I tried some settings that came in kmttg originally for encoding, but the shows didn't play right on the Xbox.

I'll be getting caught up next week. I have the Nomad device for DirecTV. So, I've transferred all my DVR'd stuff over to my laptop. I then hook that up to my parent's HDTV in their basement and I'll be watching everything next week while I'm down there.

I'm moving my backlog (that the wife doesn't watch) to my Nexus 7 and watching it on my 1 hour morning commute. Burned through Strike Back S1-2 and starting to go through the half season of Suburgatory that I haven't gotten to.

I'm just about caught up with the shows I was actually watching this fall. I only have 2 episodes of Arrow, 1 of Hawaii 5-0, and 1 of Always Sunny that is on tonight. The problem is that I have 15 shows that I've been recording this season but I haven't even started watching yet. I should be able to catch up on a few of them soon though.

To help catch up further, I made an executive decision and dumped 3 SP's - Haven (34 eps), Jungle Gold (7 eps), and Vegas (10 eps).

The Wire!

Even better than the Sopranos, IMO.

And I own and love both series.

We never had HBO so The Wire complete series DVD is on my Christmas list.

We'll see in a few days if Mrs. Santa delivers.

I'm caught up. I kind of regulate how much I watch so that I don't ever get too far behind.

So not caught up on anything but SPN, New Girl, Happy Endings and Suburgatory.

I need help. Which should I attempt first out of these:

The Walking Dead
Dexter
Once Upon A Time
Boardwalk Empire
Vampire Diaries
Fringe
Sons of Anarchy

I think I've watched the first 4 of Empire Boardwalk and the premier of Dexter, Once and TVD. That's it. UGH

Massively behind on three shows that I watch with the roommate:

Dexter ( -8 eps)
Childrens Hospital (full season)
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (full previous season plus all of this season to date)

Considering trying to catch up on Shameless US but might just jump into S3 and hope for the best.

You need to catch up on Vampire Diaries first - we have missed you in those threads!

Maybe if we tell her Elijah came back, she will catch up.




(Disclaimer: Not a spoiler... I am almost as many episodes behind as she is so I have no idea if that's true. )

I don't watch most of those but there are some pretty shocking moments in The Walking Dead that I would have hated to have spoiled for me if I was behind.

This is the only show I haven't been able to keep spoiler free. And I don't know specifics just one big thing that has happened. Otherwise, I'm pretty impressed with myself for avoiding any info at all on any of the shows.

You should consider a different job and/or lifestyle, that enables you to keep up with all your TV needs.

If it were me...

The Walking Dead (it was a great season)
Fringe (so you can be caught up and ready for the last three hours in January)
Once Upon a Time (so you can be caught up when new shows return)

Have fun!

Things I'm way behind on.

Haven't watched a single ep. of Homeland yet, both seasons archived.

Nor the final season of Damages or Season 5 of Breaking Bad.

Season 3 of Spartacus.

Season 3 of Boardwalk Empire.

Only a few eps behind in The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, and Chicago Fire.

Well, that's a whole other question. I still have tapes I recorded in 1986.
