    Old thread, I know; still a good one.

    43 eps of How I Met Your Mother - stopped being funny about 44 eps ago. Myabe I just outgrew it, but I find I don't enjoy spending time with those people any more. Couldn't give a rat's hat who their mother is.

    21 eps of True Blood - it just got really stupid about 23 eps ago.

    37 eps of Criminal Minds - I liked the show at first but could not figure out why, since it is so dark and is always the same show each week. But at the time i thought it was good, and besides, the little blonde girl is cute. I finally realized that the last redeeming value of the show is that the little blonde girl is cute.​

    I expect to clean house and dump them all before September.

    I didn't do a count, but I bet I have 50-60 episodes of Forensic Files on 3 different HR-xx's.

    A friend of mine (detective, not victim) is on an episode, and several of his cohorts are on another. Amazing show, BTW.

    Also have a pile of How It's Made episodes on 2 machines. If I blip through commercials on a show and need some filler, How It's Made is great as almost all the segments are 5-6 minutes long. Another great series.

    I have a few 'keeper' episodes of several shows waiting to be burned to DVD, probably should get on that, one of my machines is an HR20 and I suppose the HDD could crap out at any time.

    Stuff waiting to burn is some old cartoons, maybe 2 episodes of South Park, some local news segments on some business endeavors I am involved in, some locally produced PBS items on local interests, one ep of Molly B with a band I've heard play at an anniversary party, girls state basket ball tournament with cousins kid in it, and some national news coverage of a local disaster a few years ago. (I really need to get going on that!!)

    I try to keep all 3 machines between 20 and 30% free in case of travel or a marathon.

    Generally speaking we don't stockpile things we don't watch. We watch it and delete or don't record it.

    Now, I library movies, lots of movies. Generally easier access than discs, especially for the kids. We basically only library two shows right now, Firefly and The Big Bang Theory.

    We are stockpiling three different series that I recently discovered. The only reason they are being stockpiled is because I am taping repeats as well as new shows. These include:

    Good Eats ~ Love to learn WHY we cook the way we do
    Spartacus ~ Heard it was good so going back to catch up
    Big Bang Theory ~ Am current with this season, but catching up to the previous ones
