Question of the week: are there shows you feel you're missing out on?

Posted on December 1, 2010 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

In this day and age, it's very easy to catch up on shows that you've missed – at least you'd think so, given iTunes, the iPlayer, Hulu, DVDs, re-runs, et al. Yet often as not, when faced with the prospect of six hours or 13 hours or even 24 hours to catch up with a season's worth of TV episodes – let alone two or more seasons – that task becomes impossible.

Now, despite the best intentions of the Carusometer, sometimes shows get passed me. I hear Sons of Anarchy is very good, even though I never got further than the first episode. Jimmy McGovern's Accused is getting lots of press coverage – even though I didn't notice it was on – Terriers apparently got good several episodes in and Hawaii Five-0 seems to have a certain buzz, despite it being daft as hell. I'm beginning to regret not watching them and being out of the conversational loop.

So this week's question is:

Are there any shows you haven't been watching that you wish you had, but still can't find the time to watch anyway? Why do you want to watch them – and why can't you?

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.
