For the priority stuff, it usually takes me 3 months although this year 
it was 4 months! Others I watch, as and when, for example, the new 
series of Strictly has just started, so I'll now start watching last 
years. Ditto for the Apprentice.

Others still, such as the continental drama series on Fridays on More4 
and BBC Four on Saturdays, I take out with me to the Philippines where 
my Filipina partner and I watch them together - if you've ever been to 
that part of the world you'll be acutely aware of the dearth of decent 
programmes over there! I also take out a stack of other progs such as 
films, cookery programmes, thriller/detective series, natural history, 
etc which both of us enjoy.

Although I watch a fair amount of TV, I'm pretty selective and most of 
my viewing is done after 6pm, so it's not like I've got square eyes, LOL.
