Post strikes 2023 - Are you caught up on all your TV backlog?

Question is in the thread title.

Did you manage to make a dent on your backlog while watching some new things that slowly came out during the course of the SAG and WGA strikes?

Or do you watch very little that you were always caught up?

Or are you simply hopelessly behind?

To answer my own question, yes I managed to get caught up through DVR and streaming while getting ready for new seasons coming out and I am probably 85% caught up.

And I managed to keep up weekly with some new programs like Monarch and now Masters of the Air.


*** This doesn't just apply to broadcast TV content. This can be new Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Apple, Prime video, Max, AMC+, Paramount +, Peacock shows etc. that you may be backed up on. That may make things a lot harder. I know some of you churn to save money, so you may back backed up on a lot of streaming content.

I'm not at all caught up. I'm still very behind, but part of that was due to a death in my family. I hope to get caught up on Traitors, The Challenge, and The Amazing Race soon.

I learned years and years ago I'm never catching up on my backlog unless people start living to 150 years soon.

Yeah, there will be no such thing as being "caught up" in my lifetime no matter how many strikes there are. Even if somehow all new content stopped being produced, I still have lots of shows that I fell off of but would still like to get back to one day. Plus probably thousands of hours of content on Blu-rays I have and DVR content I've saved up. I probably have at least 5 years of The Simpsons I haven't got to. I think 60 or more episodes of Riverdale to go still. Realistically, I won't be able to watch it all before I die.
