    Only watched 13 titles last year... but was competing with The Olympics. Will DEFINITELY do better this year! Can't wait, plan on watching a lot of stuff I haven't seen before (plus the usual staples, LOL). I am also taking a week off the beginning of Feb, so I should be able to go on a tear then... but we'll see.
