I started doing this a few years back mainly to determine if a show would be cancelled in mid stream. Many were as you will recall. Nothing worse than having a show you enjoy end abruptly.
Lately I have been storing episodes with the premium channel series as well as AMC and FX. Sons of Anarchy, Homeland and Boardwalk Empire come to mind.
The upside is you can familiarize yourself with characters and not have to ask the wife "have we seen her before, etc".
The downside is not being able to discuss the episodes in the Forum
