I am new to the cord-cutting world. My boyfriend and I just moved to a new apartment, and decided not to get cable. With the quality content and stories of today’s TV shows, I had to find new means of watching my favorites, on my own time. When I found that I was getting overwhelmed with keeping track of new episodes in my head, I began my search.
I wanted some sort of system or service that would keep track of my favorite TV shows. I found Episode Alert. This is really a great website. They have almost every TV show from recent years in their database. They keep track of the seasons, episodes, and even have a quick synopsis for each episode. Best of all, I can check off what shows I’ve watched, and keep track of the episodes I need to watch. When a television show goes to the pasture, like Breaking Bad, The Office, and 30 Rock, you can archive them, and they’re moved to a different area of the page, so you can keep old and new shows separated. Only improvement I could envision would be one that would separate shows that are currently playing, and those that are off-season/on break.
I’m kind of embarrassed to say that I watch 23 TV shows religiously, (though I feel better that none of them are reality shows), and without Episode Alert, I would be totally lost.
