    I've never been this behind on my DVD watching, but it's a fun boat to be in and I wonder if I'm the only one?

    For Christmas, I got ST:TNG Seas 7, All in theFAmilly 1, Threes Company 1, Aqua Teen Hunger Force ,The Critic Complete Series, Dragonball Red Ribbon Army, and MWC Season 2. I just ordered Home Improvement Season 1, and now I hear that He-Man and Knight Rider season 2 are coming out, one definetly this year, another sometime soon.

    Who knows whatelse will be released, but at this moment, it's going to take me all year to catch up [​IMG] .

    Anyone else with alot of stuff to w atch?

    Well, I guess I'm green with envy. I've pretty much caught up with my tv-dvd set purchases, and I don't really see anything at the stores that really grabs me. Maybe a few items of marginal, marginal interest, which I've been toying with. But, being interested almost exclusively in older series (pre-1975), my television tastes are not particularly being catered to at this point. A few items I'm looking forward to are the upcoming ones on "Green Acres," "Have Gun Will Travel," and "Superman." However, they are still months away.

    I am soooo far behind in my tv-dvd watching. Of the 20+ sets that I have, I have only completed viewing 5 of them. Let's just say I have a lot of TV on DVD watching to do.

    Yes, between the Star Trek boxes (7 of which will keep me busy for some time to come yet); the second season of Dallas; Twin Peaks; Carnivale; Quantum Leap; The A-Team; Voltron and Battle of the Planets, I don't think I will have time to watch much else...

    ...but that doesn't stop us from buying more now, does it? [​IMG]

    Still, I find it easier to sit down and watch an episode or two of a TV show than I do trying to fit a backlog of films in. I hate films being interrupted, but it is harder to find a solid 2-hour block than it is to find 30-50 minutes!

    Yep, count me in among the "behind on TV/DVD viewing but it's nice to be in that position. I never run out of something to put in the player at lunch on my off-wk days [​IMG]

    Hello, Bert from Dallas [​IMG] I also like mainly the older TV series on DVD, mostly 60's and 70's series, some 80's, and only a handful of 90's stuff. Speaking of 90's, "Lois and Clark" anyone? [​IMG] I'm waiting for that Warner Bros release date announcement. It's supposed to be coming this year.

    I'm in the same boat trying to catch up with my TV on DVD watching. I'm currently splitting time between the following:

    Star Trek Voyager: Season 7
    Star Trek TOS: Season 1
    Farscape: Season 1
    Seinfeld: Season 1 & 2
    Buck Rogers The Complete Series

    Not to mention I have more stuff waiting in the wings as well as a huge backlog of films to go through.

    What a crazy hobby this is.[​IMG]

    I hear you I haven't even touched these sets yet.

    The Office complete collection
    Mr Show 1 & 2, 3, 4
    Arrested Development
    Sledge Hammer
    Seinfeld 1 & 2, 3
    Da Ali G Show
    Curb Your Enthusiasm 2
    Project Greenlight 2

    With a few weeks left of my Blockbuster online account and a 70 hour Tivo almost at it's max capacity I'm starting to feel overwhelmed by content. I prefer this over the alternative though. [​IMG]
