    Not what sets you own, but what are you watching right now? I'm cycling between:

    Degrassi Junior High S2
    Quincy ME S1
    Airwolf S1
    A-Team S2
    Dragnet 1967 S1
    Kung Fu S2
    Dukes of Hazzard S3
    Magnum pi S2

    I don't know about you, but I use the "jewel case method." I have seven jewel cases, and I put each current disc in one of them (and one in the player). That way, I can swap discs easily without having to open the packaging all the time.

    I'm currently watching the first season of Bewitched. I usually just run through the entire season before moving on to the next show.

    Ahhh... exactly what we're doing here. Some are both of us, some my wife's, some mine. We'll leave the details a mystery [​IMG]
    Jewel cases (or slim case) with the disc in progress:

    Batman TAS vol 3 disc 2
    Enterprise s1 disc 2
    ST DS9 s5 disc 4 (slowly working through this series)
    Starsky and Hutch s3 disc 1
    Buffy TVS season 1 disc 1
    Crusade (B5 follow-up) disc 2
    ST TOS s1 disc 2
    Hogan's Heroes s1 disc 3

    plus Rocky and Bullwinkle set 2, 2002 Twilight Zone, Fractured Flickers, Outer Limits (original series) season 2 all in progress but on shelves in boxes for more occasional viewing.

    Awaiting month's end; Twilight Zone (Definitive, 3rd Season) and Twilight Zone (1980s, 2nd & "3rd" season) will go into heavy rotation. ("Igor! More jewel cases!")

    I used to only watch one show until I was finished with that particular box, but then I started having more sets at once. I now like to mix it up. Of course, I'm mainly about the Degrassi right now. I love that show. :b

    I just finished Season 1 of Scrubs and will probably revisit again in the next few weeks.

    As soon as my roomate gets Season 3 of the Sopranos, we're going to sit down and go through all 5 seasons as quickly as possible.

    Sports Night and The West Wing get pretty frequent play as well as Simpsons and Futurama.

    I usually do a rotation of about 4-5 shows at a time. I am currently on the last disc of the last show in my current rotation. I just finished watching:

    Felicity - Season 1
    Everybody Loves Raymond - Season 1
    Six Feet Under - Season 3
    Carnivale - Season 1 (only discs 1-3 and I'm not sure I'm gonna continue with the series since it has been canceled and I wasn't that attached to it)

    Then I'm gonna watch all of "Rescue Me" so I can watch the current season.

    The next rotation is gonna be:

    Angel - Season 4
    America's Next Top Model - Cycle 1
    Bewitched - Season 1
    Felicity - Season 2
    Firefly - Complete Series
    Family Business - Season 1 (trying this one out...might replace it with something else)

    I'm watching Reno 911: Season 2 because that's like my current favorite television show to watch right now. I still haven't finish watching Married with Children: Season 1 and 21 Jump Street: Season 1 I would like to finish those soon so I buy the rest of the box sets of Married with Children and 21 Jump Street...

    I'm currently working on:

    Buffy Season 7
    The Lone Gunmen
    Newsradio
    The Man Show Season 1 Volume 1

    My biggest problem is that I'm watching these with my wife who gets mad if I move along without her. But she's not been in a TV mood lately. So I'm just stuck in limbo. Of course I'm using this time to get caught up on other things I'm watching and I'm considering re-watching Band of Brothers since she has no interest in it. But I'm anxious to finish Buffy so we can get started on Angel Season 4 & 5. I've never seen those, so I'm very much looking forward to it.

    Currently getting through:
    Friends s8, Cheers s4, Sports Night, That 70's Show s2, South Park s5, Dilbert, Frasier s4, Bob Newhart s1, Sanford & Son s3, Three's Company s2, The Sweeney s3, Auf Wiedersehen Pet s1, Hammer House of Horror.

    I've got the scheduling down to a fine art, I watch one episode per week of most of those, one every two weeks of the shorter series.

    S & S s3 finishes this week, to be replaced by Dick Van Dyke s3. I'm making sure that a gap in the schedule appears by the end of July to make way for MTM s2.

    Well, I finished off Degrassi, to my regret. Now I have to wait until September for more of it.

    If this thread by any chance becomes an ongoing thing, I wonder how it should be handled. Don't worry, I won't update every time I'm done with a show except for the above. [​IMG] Maybe the shows initially listed could serve as that rotation, and when those are finished, a new rotation could be listed.

    Anyway, the Degrassi thing made me realize something. Most of the TV sets I buy are hour-long shows, but it's kind of nice to have a 30 minute show I can just throw on and watch quick. I'll have to study on this theory a bit, since I usually end up watching at least two episodes anyway. [​IMG]
