Getting the MacBook Air to act like an iphone/iPad/ATV


I have a large library of TV shows/Movies on my iMac which has a large drive to accommodate them.

I also have a new MacBook Air that has limited storage. (Well 250gig but still I want to use it for other stuff. )

When I travel I would like to catch up on the unwatched TV shows.

What would be cool is if the MacBook Air appeared to iTunes on the iMac as a iPhone/iPad/ATV and sync unwatched content over to it.

Once watched on the MacBook Air it would sync back that it is watched and remove itself.

Has anyone managed to find a way to get this to work (or am I the only person who would want this behaviour?).

Happy New Year!
