When you watch programs you have DVR'd, do you watch them in a particular or random way?

    I was getting ready to watch a couple of things I have on my DVR, and I realized that I don't watch things as I recorded them, but how they relate to each other. For example, I'll watch all the sitcoms at the same time, or all the reality shows, regardless of how old they may be.

    So do you have a system, or is it just random?

    This is a good question! I always watch them in order of when they aired. I would never watch episode 8 if I haven't seen #7 yet.

    I kind of binge watch so I'll watch a couple of shows that are just kind of meh and then allow myself to watch a show or two that I really like. If I don't do it that way, I'll end up with a bunch of meh shows and no good ones saved.

    Exception: If it's continued next week, I'll watch them in a row.

    The only thing I watch live is sports. Everything else I'm interested in is recorded and watched without commercial interruption.

    what is that way?

    Of course I watch show episodes in order, but I'm wondering if you watch things that are related to each other by genre--or day of the week? I just realized that I watch shows that are alike at the same time

    I do watch NCIS and NCIS New Orleans together and Chicago PD and Chicago Fire together. I must have about 10 episodes of each though because I'm never home to catch up.

    Sometimes I sit up and watch them and sometimes I lay down and watch them. So I guess that makes me random.

    In a particular way that I don't feel comfortable discussing with total strangers on the internet.

    I wish uverse would let you watch your DVR content on your phone when you are away from home. I think some other services do. Fios maybe does.
