My most recent job definitely had a "season", with most of the work concentrated in the first half of the year. So, for the last several years, I don't watch television for about five months out of the year. I do record lots of stuff to "watch later", and then catch up with all these shows on a haphazard basis. It has more of the effect of filling in a jigsaw puzzle than watching a linear story.
I really need to be better organized about my TV watching, because it's a lot harder to develop the fannish love in bits and pieces.
Oh, I netflixed "Heroes". I've almost finished watched "Carnivale" (also Netflixed), so time for a new show. Hm. I still have "Oz" in my queue, as well. So many people have recced "Heroes" to me, so I have to give it a try. Besides, I want to see Zachary Quinto in action *before* I see him as Spock. :-)
I also need to figure out which "Supernatural" episodes I haven't seen. (Off to google for an episode guide...)
