What's on your catching-up-with-TV Must List?

Brotherssisters_lWe’re wondering — as your summer TV consumption has undoubtedly curbed itself in favor of air-conditioned cinemas, sunlight, and (possibly) interacting with real humans, which TV shows are you cramming to catch up on before their fast-approaching fall premieres? Personally, I’m trying to get back into season 2 of Brothers & Sisters (pictured) on DVD — I stopped watching after season 1 and need to know if the Walkers ever did improve on their impressive 3:1 ratio of Bottles of Red Wine to Family Arguments per episode. I’m also attempting to make a significant dent in How I Met Your Mother on iTunes… and I haven’t even tapped into Hulu yet.

What TV series are you determined to catch up on? Please include your e-mail address so that we can get in touch with youin case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, August 21.

    Seeing an interview with Blake Lively and realizing that she’s lovely (and not, as I had assumed, the second coming of Mischa Barton) + Shirtless Chase Crawford in my subway station = anyone know how I can catch up on Gossip Girl for free?

    I still have the last two episodes of Heroes on my dvr and I’m determined to get to them before the new season starts… as soon as I get through the approximately thirty hours of recorded Olympics I’ve accumulated over the last two weeks.

    When its on network TV, I’m usually pretty good at keeping up with the shows I want to keep up with. When it comes to those pesky cable shows, though, I can never remember what time they’re on and I always seem to fall behind (Bravo being the lone exception because I need me some Top Chef and Kathy Griffin). What all of that means is I’ve still only watched like 2 episodes of the second season of “Dexter” and I REALLY need to catch up. Even with the shows constantly on the “On Demand” list, I still just can’t seem to get them watched. I’m already playing catch up when it comes to Weeds and now I’ve got to do it with Dexter too? Sigh, its too hot to be working this hard!

    I started watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles half-way through, so I’m starting at the beginning and watching them all to refresh my memory. I also am excited to watch Chuck – hopefully Nicole Ritchie doesn’t mess it up – and Pushing Daisies – yay for Autumn Reeser! again and will probably try to catch up on those.

    LOST this past season…

  • Jamie

    Having recently acquired BBC America, I am playing catch up on series one of Skins, a show that put all of teen dramas to shame as well as seasons one through three of Doctor Who.

    The writer strike sent me looking for dvds and the first thing I did was get Buffy the Vampire Slayer seasons 2-5, since my cable didn’t carry that network for those years. I also took a friend’s advice and watched Veronica Mars for the first time. I now have a list to tide me through in case someone else goes on strike.

    I need to catch up on Season 3 of Lost. After the show got all sympathetic to the Others, I got really mad and promised to stop watching the show. But how can I really stop watching Lost? I met my wife because of that friggin’ show!
    Anyway, it’s netflix time so I can catch up and figure out whether or not I feel like jumping back on the “cliffhanger every week” bandwagon…

    I’ve been TRYING to catch up on Gossip Girl and How I Met Your Mother… but the darn Olympics keep getting in the way!

  • Laurie

    I’ve managed to catch up on just about everything I need to before the fall season starts, but I still have to watch Life. I saw about half the episodes when they aired and then missed a few and I decided that I’d just marathon it during the summer. It’s so good that I thought I’d save the best for last. Once I’m done with that and once the fall season shakes out, I will be watching the first half of this last season of BSG, and I can do it nice and leisurely, thanks to the hiatus.

    I’ve been meaning to catch up on Chuck. I think I’ve seen all the episodes, but I’m not positive. I got hooked in the middle of the season. Stupid NBC won’t put them all up at once their website. Corporate idiots.

  • Stacey

    Good lord, I have to catch up on Dexter, Heroes, Sarah Connor Chronicles & 30 Rock! I tried to cut back my on my tv habit last year, but I’m going to say it: I’m a TV addict and I’m okay with that. Thank you iTunes, Hulu, and the gods who invented DVRs.

  • Erica

    I’m going to try to catch up on Damages, Prison Break, and ER

  • Joslyn Hansen

    The whole series thus far of How I Met Your Mother is my summer project (1 season down…2 to go?) and I do keep thinking about catching up with the second half of Gossip Girl.

  • Broadway Baby

    Mad Men – and it’s kept me from watching the new season so I’m probably in the same situation next season.
