DVR-Stating

It is no secret that Roon and I love TV.  You may recall that it is not at all uncommon for us to have our DVR get backed up to the point of full, before getting caught up. 

After the kids were in bed last night, Roon and I settled in to watch our shows, when we were struck by a devastating realization.  That is, that next year, our DVR will be much easier to manage.  It was almost humorous, as we looked through our "schedule" to see what all we would be losing...

24
Lost
How I Met Your Mother
CSI
Grey's Anatomy
The Office
Law and Order SVU
The Bachelorette
Law and Order
CSI Miami
Scrubs
Monk
Numb3rs
Oprah Winfrey
Rules of Engagement
Psych
Til Death
The Bill Engvall Show
Criminal Minds
The Big Bang Theory
Mythbusters
SNL
The Mole
Kath and Kim
The Bachelor
In the Motherhood
Here Come the Newlyweds
Dating in the Dark
Community
Private Practice
The Middle
Modern Family
Undercover Boss

This is our list of scheduled shows.  The ones highlighted, have either been canceled for some time, or will be ending with the conclusion of the current season.  It's not a dramatic change, but it's enough to make us go awww...

Topping our list of favorites is 24.  I love me some Jack Bauer.  Roon gets a special thrill when he hears the intro, with the stopwatch, and the words "viewer discression is advised".  I, on the other hand, get a special thrill out of seeing a hot patriotic guy doing his duty with his ripped body for this country.  Oh how I'll miss it!  I would say I'm going to miss "Lost" as well, but to be honest...I just can't wait to have it all finally make sense.  I hope it's not a crushing disappointment!  
I'm especially sad to see Law and Order go.  Mainly because I've never really known a time WITHOUT Law and Order.    It was like some of the seasonings in my spice cupboard.  Not sure how long they've been around, (you know it's been a while)...yet there's something comforting about knowing they're there when you need them. 

Is it sad that my DVR has been getting a better spring cleaning than the rest of my house?  Wait, don't answer that...

For those of you keeping score, you may also notice that Dr. Oz was MIA from my list.  Yeah.  I had to give him the boot.  Just didn't have time.  I was 40 episodes behind at one point.  Live long and prosper, Dr. Oz...

Oh man, your DVR list is worse than mine! Why is 24 done? Is it done or cancelled? I love Jack! Love him. Yeah, he's cute, ain't he? I can't believe he's a grandpa in real life.
I was sad about Flash Forward being cancelled. :(

I watch none of those shows. I think we are still probably kindred spirits though!

Also...I know you want to know my list, so here it is:

One Tree Hill
NCIS
NCIS: Los Angeles
The Vampire Diaries
So You Think You Can Dance

Those are my shows I can absolutely NOT miss an episode of.
