FFD: Does bingeing a series improve or ruin the experience?

Binging bad ffd

It was the summer of 2001. I was doing a summer internship in New York, spending the season in the city with my mom while my parents were fighting an insane divorce battle. Neither of us had watched much of The Sopranos, so we decided to watch it from the very beginning. Every day on my way home from the theater where I was working, I went to our movie rental place and picked up the next 3-4 episodes for us to watch that evening. Over the weekend, we’d push for 7-8 per day. When we finished everything they had of The Sopranos, we moved on and did the same with Sex and the City. It was a fantastic summer.

Years later, I was working a painful marketing job based in Midrand. I was the only one in the office working during December, so I managed to grab season 5 of Dexter, the latest season that I hadn’t watched yet. I binged the whole thing, locked in that office, all alone. It made the atrocities of what Lumen went through, and the brutality of her revenge, incredibly heightened for me. Instead of stretching out the suspense over the week, my adrenaline never stopped pumping as I watched episode after episode, back to back.

More recently, Netflix has made series bingeing the norm. Every year when the latest House of Cards or Orange is the New Black releases, there is someone who finishes the whole season in less than a day, bingeing on the whole season without pausing for more than a bathroom break. The platform caters to it, queueing up the next episode as the credits roll on the current one, letting you continue watching without ever needing to push a button.

But is bingeing really the best? I know plenty of people who burn out on series if watched that way. Maybe they can handle watching one episode an evening, or even an episode every few days; if they watch more than that, they burn out and lose interest in the series all together. It even happens to me, a serial binger, with shows that can’t keep the energy going. I stopped watching Daredevil around episode 6, and also lost interest in The Following when it all became a bit silly and samey. Repetition or lack of momentum becomes glaringly apparent when you’re watching episodes back to back.

Despite the rise of “bingeing” culture on Netflix, the majority of shows still forgo this approach and continue to release one episode at a time. From Homeland to Suits, Blacklist to The Grand Tour, weekly episodes are still the traditional and normal way to release a series.

Do you prefer to sit down and watch hours of entertainment all in a row, or do you like having an episode to look forward to each week? Has bingeing amplified your enjoyment of TV shows, or do you prefer portion control?

    Bingeing is best. Watch it all together to get the whole experience as it’s meant to be had

      Agreed, waiting a week or sometimes more during mid season break might make you miss small things.

        I generally watch all from start to midseason in one go. Then wait it all out until end season and watch mid-end in on go.
        Then in the mid season times I watch the ones I haven’t started yet.

        Disagree. I binged on Supernatural when it was still good. So in other words Season 2. Got a bit ‘tired’ of the humor. Taking a break now and then does the soul good.

    Depends on the series. Some do become more of the same and it all feels very monotonous.
    But a series that is well written, with constant twists and turns, THAT is awesome. Binge away!

    I’ve come to the conclusion that portion control is the best for me – 2 or 3 episodes max on any given day (usually a weekend) for a show I’m “bingeing”. It helps with burnout, which is a real thing when seasons are long and you have multiple seasons to boot. Knowing all the episodes are there & I can watch at my own pace is very convenient, not a big fan of waiting for a weekly episode since the advent of that, but I do that too for some of my favourites.

    Depends on person. I can binge and absolutely love to binge watch Anime. I binged Stranger Things the other day and it was superb yet I have a friend who hates watching too many eps one after the other. Also don’t binge more than 1 season at a time.

      Good anime I never binge watch, I usually have a 4 episode per day limit for them. But the usual standard plot anime that have 13 episodes I binge watch in one sitting.

            Normally 24 – 26 per season. But for the last few years the strategy is to release a 13 episode ‘cour’ as a market tester. If the response is good they make a second cour to complete the season. If not they scrap it leaving me with a cliffhanger

            I can honestly say most of the shows I tend to watch stick to the 24,26,13 episode packages. The longest running show I really love is Slayers and that has 6 season (and like 7 movies) spread over like 15 years.

            Yeah If it doesn’t end in 2 – 3 seasons, I’m gonna skip it as a rule. With the exception of any Gundam series. I want to watch Slayers, but I can’t force myself to watch low res anime.

            Lu does not like old anime due to the resolution. I dislike a series that was way overhyped. Don’t get me wrong. I watched 10 episodes before I knew in my heart of hearts that this show ain’t gonna cut it for me.

            November 18, 2016 at 23:33

            Oh yeah bleach is pretty overhyped and the pitfalls in both the story and the structure are blatantly obvious, but it was the first real subbed anime I watched, so it will always have a spot in my heart.

            the end of the first arc and the last arc, would actually almost be worth the grind for pretty much any anime fan.
            The main antagonist is one of the best Ive seen.

            Naruto and One piece were both overated AF though.

    For me it really depends on how many seasons there are. For example: if you binge something that’s only 2 seasons in, and you’re not close to being able to see the next season, then you’re only hurting yourself because you’re going to want more, but not be able to get it (f’n addict).

    Binging something with a lot of seasons can also be negative, because you can burn yourself out on that series, and then you’re not going to watch it for a while.

    So it depends on you, as a person, and on the series too.

      I find that binging on something like Star Trek is something I can easily do. No burn out nothing. You pop in a disc, plop your feet up and watch all episodes you can.
      So Captain Picard wants to blow up that evil asteroid making his crew see images of 1950’s style pin-up Klingon women with a photon torpedo reverse engineered to be a device that eliminates Type C proteins in beings with a pink Y chromosome in their 3rd vertebrae and I am all like that makes perfect sense!

    Bingeing is best. I find that all these awesome series that goes on a break breaks the experience. Also the duration of time it takes for the next season to start sometimes is just too long. Some more than a year or 2 even. By the time the new season comes out then my interest in it has wavered a lot. Perfect example: Humans. First seasons was amazing. Then thought the series ended cause it took so long for season 2 to be announced. Next thing u knew Humans season 2 starts and now I’m not as into it as I used to be. Same with Marco Polo.

    All good dramas have so many story arcs woven together and sometimes multiple timelines, so for me watching episodes back to back really helps keep continuity and it’s easier to recall details from the earlier episodes.
