Restoring Time Machine backups on a macbook

So...I'm not sure what the issue is, but there are no errors or anything. I hit restore and it currently says "preparing to copy "Macintosh HD" ....over 200,000 files and counting. I'm trying to restore from my backup disk to a new hard drive, and have repeated this process 4 or 5 times with no success. At the end, there are no messages, or pop ups, and nothing was restored. Basically, it's lying to me. Also, I can't view and of my document folders in the time machine backup (although I can see all my old programs).

any ideas of why time machine is being a piece of shit and wasting hours of my time?

Thank you sir, will do. I'm trying to avoid an embarrassing trip to a Mac store to ask them to press a button for me :| lol
