Are You A Binge Watcher?

Binge watcher - is that you?

We used to watch our favorite TV shows as they were broadcast on television.

Now we have Hulu and Netflix. And we can binge watch!

Not everyone does, or wants to. But for those of us who can't afford cable television and maybe have missed a season or two of a favorite show - Hulu Plus and Netflix are great!

Recently I have binged watched the following shows:

Peaky Blinders

Blacklist

The Killing

And this week I'm watching "The 4400". It's great! I started watching it when it was new. Then I gave up cable for a year and lost track of it.

It is great sci-fi and jumps around so much in time that it really doesn't matter when you see it.

O.K., they use flip phones.

My time for watching television shows is sporadic. So I don't watch - or I binge watch.

How about you?

I have never binged watched using Netflix/Hulu, but I got the first season of The Boardwalk Empire, and watched the entire season in 3 sittings this past weekend. I now have the rest of the 5 seasons on hold from the library. emoticon :winking:

I binge watch certain shows on netflix when I have the time. We dont have cable so they fill the days when nothing good is on also.

I don't binge watch I spread my TV watching around and when I have the time.

Haven't binge watched anything lately. I'm still mourning the death of Poirot, the world's most beloved Belgian sleuth.

I tend to be all or nothing. I can live without tv but once I get hooked to a programme, that's it.

seren3 I don't do it anymore, I just watch a couple of hours of TV here and there, or Hulu Plus from time to time. Last time I binge watched was 10 years ago, when I watched a full seasons of a couple of TV series in a weekend.

I give up the habit of watching TV for a long time.

Not really. Once in a blue moon I watch a series of shows, e.g. Chopped.

Well, I've certainly binge-watched with you. But you'll have to give me a list of all the shows you've been into lately...
