If you have a DVR, odds are you know the pain of returning from a vacation and discovering that it didn’t have enough space to record all your shows (especially if you tape HD channels, which take up more room). Once you’ve been burned, you become a lot more selective with the episodes you save after watching them.
So, which previously viewed 2011 episodes made your cut? I’m still holding on to Justified‘s May season 2 finale “Bloody Harlan.” (I’ve also still got its June 2010 season 1 finale “Bulletville” saved, incidentally.) In addition, I haven’t yet been able to part with Parks and Recreation‘s “The Trial of Leslie Knope” because of the recounts of Ben’s meeting with Chris (“That was beautiful, I’m literally crying and jumping” — so much funnier than if we’d actually seen him doing it) and Leslie annoyingly reopening the official record (’tis the season for a romantic snow scene).
P.S. If I didn’t have a screener for part 2 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s recent high school reunion season finale, I would probably still have it for the gang’s organized choreographed dance (and for the sound effects of Dee’s back brace during the lift).
