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?
