    Hello, I need some help to check on this sentence.

    Does this set of words correct? Or is there a better way to construct it?

    "Watching this series behindhand, doesn't make it any less of a good show!"

    Many thanks!

    Does Is this set of words ​sentence correct?
    Welcome to the forum.

    By "behindhand", do you mean "after it was originally broadcast/after most people watched it"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you!

    Is there any difference between the two option?

    Don't put a comma between the subject and the verb.

    Please answer my question in post #2. I wrote "By 'behindhand', do you mean ...?" I have never heard the word before and I wanted to know if you think that is the definition.

    The word 'behindhand' does not seem to mean what you think it means, sircageee. (Click on the underlined link.)

    After most people watched it.

    Could you suggest an appropriate word for "behindhand" with this sentence?

    I've never heard "behindhand" either. It sounds made up, or in error.

    I can't think of a single appropriate word. I would probably just say "Watching this series long after it was broadcast/long after everyone else/on Catch-up ...".
