    Apparently if you let things sit on your DVR too long, they don't get watched.

    I watch a lot of stuff (reality shows, mainly) that I DVR that I can't see while I'm at work. The problem is when I have my DVR set to record a bunch of sitcoms and I, invariably, never catch up on and just give up trying.

    Do you watch that one about the guy who keeps dying and coming back to life, only in every new incarnation he's even dumber than in the last one?

    It's hilarious.

    Most of what has been sitting on my DVR for a long time is movies. If they don't get watched now, they'll get watched eventually on a day where I have nothing to do.

    I thought so, too, Wenders. But there are still months-old movies there.

    Silly me. I thought Wenders was talking about HER habits. Not yours. Weird.

    I'm part of the 1 percent. Most of the weekly stuff I watch I watch within that week. But stuff that airs daily, I'll generally wait until it piles up then just go on a binge one weekend.

    A lot of shows I let sit until I have three or four in a row to watch - especially the more serialized shows - burned through three Walking Dead over the weekend, it made it seem like more stuff actually happened.

    I let so many Boardwalk Empires build up in my DVR that I just gave up. It just wasn't appointment TV, and then when there were 10 hours I had to watch, "screw it."

    BE is good stuff. Watched all three seasons during my free HBO period. Currently binging on Downton Abbey and Homeland Season 2.

    I time-shift watch almost everything. My wife and I watch shows together on nights I'm off (like HIMYM, and Walking Dead) and since I work at night, I DVR a lot of prime-time TV plus sports stuff (PTI, live games I know I can't watch while at work, etc.)
    I am a part of the 1% as well...until this weekend, I had 12 episodes of Craig Ferguson on my DVR...got it down to 4 now.
    I still have lots of "end of the world" stuff to go through that was airing on History and whatnot as the Mayan calendar was ticking down.
    Also, lots of movies and historical shows as well.
