....but not got around to watching/listening to yet. So many to list. Band of Brothers box set. Had for 2-3 years and still not watched. It. Control (Joy Division) movie. Had for about 3 or 4 months and still not watched it.

Who has had an album or movie the longest that has still not been pleasured, and why?

I'll often pick up a handful of CDs in a charity shop/boot sale/whatever and rip them to my computer to be listened to 'at some point'. For example, today I added The Pixies' Surfer Rosa, an Embrace album and Moloko's Things to Make and Do.

...I currently have 6589 songs unlistened to in my iTunes folder. The oldest one has been there since 26/2/2008!

Once was enough as far as The Prisoner was concerned...

I think a lot of us do it .I had the Battlestar Galactica box set for ten years before I finally got round to watching it. And on a whim I buy something from Amazon which waits around for years sometimes , for example I recently bought the box sets of the sci-fis Firefly and Time Tunnel which have sat there for more than three months .It’s not helped by the fact you can pick them up for pennies second hand plus a quid or so postage.Or that the local charity shop is selling off dvds for 10p each! I console myself by passing most of them on to charity when I eventually watch them.

IIRC Channel 4 used to re-run loads of old sci-fi shows on a Sunday afternoon. The Time Tunnel, Lost in Space etc. That must have been when I watched The Prisoner, more or less every episode in order. Despite the location, a decent lead actor and those scary beach balls, it never really got going plot wise. I can only assume they ran out of money/ideas towards the end...

The ending was most definitely worthy of a trip to the Feckin' Dire thread.
