What will you watch when the new episodes run dry?

I've already started Netflixing Season 3 of Veronica Mars...thinking about taking on Ken Burns' Civil War. Maybe start Six Feet Under.

Some recommendations:
The Office (U.K.)
Arrested Development
Deadwood
Twin Peaks


What will you watch to fill the void?

I have about 20 new DVDs from the DD sale. Perfect timing.

When those run out, who knows? I might actually go through and watch some DVDs I already own!

Even more college hoops than I normally watch. That will carry me through March. Then I have a lot of unwatched DVDs.

I feel like this is the 4th thread asking the same information...

Anyway, I'll bite again. I'll watch football until that's over, then watch DVDs and play Wii. Oh, and I'll probably spend more time watching my wife.

I've been recording Torchwood, and stocking up Journeyman for when the time comes.

And, I have still never watched The Office, so I will watch those.

I'll find other stuff to do besides watching TV. Right now, it's hard to make time for it, I just get enough done so I can knock out some space on the DVR. Comcast needs to come out with an 8TB DVR. Then I'd be happy.

I've got a ton of boxsets I haven't watched yet, plus several more on the way...

And if the strike runs long enough, I've never seen "The X-Files" or "The Sopranos"... can't think of a better time .

I was thinking this might be a good time to go out and watch the world for awhile. Go outside and see what wonders nature has to offer. Go different places and meet new people. Experience things I've only talked about doing in the past.

Aw hell, I'll probably just watch DVD's, too.

My wife and I planned ahead -- we'll be having our first child not long after the new stuff runs out. This strike could go a decade and I might not have time to notice.

I live in a house with 5 other guys, some of which haven't seen Arrested Development yet, while others haven't seen the West Wing. Veronica Mars will probably be getting another run through, as well as Angel and (selectively cropped)Smallville. The Wire will DEFINITELY get another viewing as well as a number of Miniseries - Band of Brothers for sure. Aside from those, we'll probably be peppering in some Justice League, Spaced and the British Office for good measure.

I will probably catch up on Chuck and rewatch old episodes of current shows or rewatch older series such as AD or Freaks and Geeks.
