"I've seen the Game of Thrones advertized -- but I haven't seen a single episode and have no real idea what it's about -- is it worth watching."

Hell, yes.  But then again, I'm not familiar with any of the other series you've mentioned except for Dr. Who, which I never was particularly a fan of, so perhaps we're on different wavelengths.  :)

@Rich: Game of Thrones?  The Walking Dead?

I've seen the Game of Thrones advertized -- but I haven;t seen a single episode and have no real idea what it's about -- is it worth watching.

Re the Walking Dead, I devoured the first couple of series -- right up to the end of the series where the camera pull sback and you see the prison in the background -- but then I read all of the graphic novels, so I know what's coming next ... and I stopped watching. If I start again, I'll have to go all the way back to the beginning...

@betajet: Haven't you read Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

Do I look like the sort of man who wouldn't have read Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

Max, I don't think you understand the purpose of the DVR as a labor-saving device.  Haven't you read Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?  The purpose of a DVR (or VCR in the book) is to watch TV for you :-)

@Max...time is the problem.  On Tuesdays (last night here) we get 2 back to back episodes of Air Crash Investigations, which I love.   We only watch one, then go to sleep.  Or rather my wife does, I lie awake wondering what i have missed....

I have a set top box someone gave me that can record to USB - I must see if I can get that working for time shifting.  But it's still a problem finding time to watch....

@MeasurementBlues: ...have you ever heard of a DVR?

Sure -- but the problem of time remains -- I have a drawer full of really good DVDs that I simply haven't found the time to watch yet -- the last thing I need to do is fill the DVR.

What I do is use the DVR to record "The Last Ship" on Sunday evenings while Gina and I watch cooking shows -- then I'll watch that episode the following weekend while she's at work.

@Max, have you ever heard of a DVR? Or in my case a VCR?

but I cannot possibly watch them all, so I was hoping to elicit your advice. Have you watched -- or are you currently watching -- any of the following?
    • Continuum
  • Defiance
  • Dominion
  • Falling Skies
  • Lost Girl
  • Orphan Black
  • The 100
