I regularly watch four of the five shows nominated for best television drama. I just started watching Boardwalk Empire, and should finish it before the awards ceremony. I have the last season of Boardwalk Empire recorded on my DISH Hopper, so I can watch it once I’m caught up with the other seasons. With more than 1,200 hours of recording time on my DVR, I’ve been able to save this season of Boardwalk Empire without needing to delete other programs. This has helped me keep up with my shows after I started working nights at DISH. It’s going to be tough to choose which show should win, but I’d put my money on Homeland, at least until I see all of Boardwalk Empire.

I haven't watched Homeland, guess I should start recording it. Sounds like you've got a lot of show to catch up on.
