Letterboxd for TV viewing?

If anyone is familiar with Letterboxd.com it's a site where you can basically keep track of movies you've watched, when you watched them, review them, give them star ratings, etc.

Does anyone know if there is something similar for TV viewing? I can't seem to find anything but at the same time I don't really know what to search for.

Sounds like an opportunity to make an app. I would use it for TV shows. Right now I use a spreadsheet to make sure I DVR everything for the week (I don't like doing season pass recordings)

There is the TV Guide app Watch List (but nothing to check off indicating you watched the latest episode)

I use trakt also. There are third party apps that use the trakt API.

Re: Letterboxd for TV viewing?

Are you asking why I don't like using a season pass? If the DVR errors out for whatever reason, I'll be unaware of it. Out of sight, out of mind.

Highly unlikely of course, but setting it manually each week helps me actively keep track of it. I set up all my records for the whole week on Sunday night.

I use and like www.sidereel.com You can track current and cancelled shows, it gives you a weekly watchlist (for those shows currently airing) you can post reviews, rate shows, and check off episodes you've watched.

I have long wished for a site like Goodreads but for movies/TV. I went and checked out Letterboxd thanks to this thread but it doesn't appear to the have the functionality/ease of use that Goodreads has (for books).

Wow, Trakt works well, not very popular for how nice it is though.

I think it's slowing getting more users. They've just passed 1M apparently and one of the devs has just gone full time on it (prior to that I think it was 3 people doing it in their spare time).

I've tried a most of the third party iOS apps with varying success. Currently using CheckTrakt which seems to be working for me (primarily for TV but does movies too).

They don't actually have their own app, just lots of 3rd party ones.

Re: Letterboxd for TV viewing?

They all pretty much do the same things, just some have different ways of showing the data. I've tried about 5 of the iPhone ones and for what I use the app for (basically checking in when I watch a show) I've found checkTrakt the best as it has a simple UI. I've tried 60Hz a couple of times and whilst it looks great and has a great UI it constantly crashes on me.
I normally look out for when the apps are on offer or free and give them a go.
