On my bike ride to my car to drive home I kept having the Von Bondies', "C'mon C'mon" playing in my head for some reason.

I got turned on to this song by watching some random episodes of Rescue Me as it was the theme song. I was with a girl at that time who really loved the show and so we'd watch it when it came on and we had queued it up on Netflix to watch the whole series once we had finished with Lost, Buffy, Battlestar Galactica, and about 15 other shows. We made it through some of those before we broke up.

It occurred to me that while I mostly enjoyed the episodes I saw, I would never watch the whole series. There are just too many good shows out and too many things I want to watch over it that the odds of me ever watching the show in its entirety is very slim.

Are there any games/movies/TV shows that are in your backlog that you realize you're never going to play?

The Graveyard shift is not responsible for your late night procrastination, loss of meme making ability, internet addiction treatment costs, or sudden urge to google Rescue me Anime (hint, don't)
