    I’m totally a binger. I hate having to wait a week when shows that I watch in real time are on the air, like The Walking Dead is starting again and it’s going to be agony having to wait a week between epidsodes. Binging is just so much more gratifying 🙂

    I’m a binger too! Right now I’m watching Eureka, before that was An Idiot Abroad and before that Rules of Engagement. Thankfully I have it on the tv so I have to press a button to play the next episode. When I used to watch on my computer it would autoplay the next episode making it so much ahrder to stop watching.

    I will admit though that sometimes I prefer watching shows that are on only once a week because I’ve realized that when I binge I forget so much more about what happened. Maybe there’s no chance to let it sink in or something.

    My FI and I totally binge. House of Cards and Orange is the New Black were some of the best.

    Totally binge watch too. Especially older shows with like 10 seasons.

    I’m a binger when I find a show that I like.. but quite honestly, I don’t watch much tv at all. I’ve been waiting a long time for the last season of TVD to hit netflix.

    I usually jump, unless I’m watching it with my husband.  We got through the first 2 seasons of American Horror Story in like 2 weeks.

    When I was single, I would do the netflix free trials and binge on the shows before the trial ended. Now I have piggybacked onto FI’s netflix subscription. I watch shows one episode at a time.

    I get concerned that I’ll complete the series and then will have nothing to watch, but FI reminds me that that’s irrational :). I’m slowly getting accustomed to completing more series now but still don’t binge watch. There are so many good tv series!

    I’m a binger too. I’m now watching Charmed. I tend to not watch TV at all. Unless it’s something really good.

    I tend to watch 1 series at a time, or maybe flip flop between another.  Sometimes it’s a binge, sometimes it’s one episode a night or so, but I prefer keeping my focus on one show, rather than rotating through a bunch through the week like traditional cable.

    Oh my gosh, it’s like I found my own kind. I also binged Charmed (so bad it’s good), and Eureka and Once Upon a Time. Of course 30 Rock and Arrested Development are favorites of mine, as is Parks & Recreation. I love Twin Peaks, and Bob’s Burgers (amazing). Oh, and Trailer Park Boys- SO FREAKING GOOD, the new season is awesome too. 

    Haha, I love tv.

    I’m a multi series binger. I’ll watch a bunch of episodes in a row and then switch series when I feel like a change of pace. It drives H nuts because he likes to finish a series before starting another. I’m currently alternating between criminal minds, I almost got away with it, hemlock grove, wild islands, and forensic files with a couple of random documentaries and movies thrown in.

    I binge! I pick a tv show and watch and watch and waaaaaaaaaatch! But if a show has like 6+ seasons I tend to burn out and binge on ad offering show for a while before going back to it.

    MsGinkgo:  I’d binge if I could, but FH tends to watch with me and his attention wavers so we mix-and-match between a few shows.

     

    We totally binged on Suits over the summer though and now it is killing us because they haven’t got season 3 yet on there!

    SavannahJ051212:  Haha we’ve just started American Horror Story, but we have to be in the right frame of mind to watch it or we get freaked out and have weird dreams, so have only seen two episodes so far!
