    List your recent and current binge watch (streaming shows) here

    Whether it's Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, some pirate site (avast ye mates) or whatever - what did you recently complete, what is your current and what's your next binge watch?

    my most recent: The X Files, The Fall, Crossing Lines

    Current: Blue Bloods - I also watch Psych with my son, and New Girl and Criminal Minds with my teenaged daughter

    Future: House of Cards (can't wait for new season to start), Peaky Blinders

    Currently Chuck. Before that it was Firefly (I know it's hard to do a 'binge' when there were only 14 episodes of the entire series) and Smallville

    For the record the best way to watch a series is when there are no commercials or weekly/season waits between episodes. It's easy to follow the story arc of a season and see how characters develop when earlier episodes are fresh in your mind.

    What is this thing called "binge watch" of which you speak?

    (Some of you people need to get a hobby, go outside every now and then, or get between the sheets early. )

    Last binged series: Breaking Bad. Now all other series aren't as good as Breaking Bad although I am enjoying Better Call Saul.

    The episode with Lil' Kev is my favorite.

    Previous "binges": The Sopranos, Lost.

    Current "binge": Shameless (about 1/2 thru Season 2).

    I've been watching every episode of Bonanza in the order it was aired. I am in season 8 of 14.

    When I take a break from that, I watch "Lost Girl," which is a Canadian series about this kick-ass succubus and good and bad supernatural beings living in the modern world.

    Another binge pleasure is "Forensic Files," which air on HLN. They commonly run four episodes in a row in the evening.

    Crossing Lines
    The Fall

    Queued up for binging when I'm not still in moving mode:

    How the States got their Shapes
    Twin Peaks
    The Job
    Justified (saw the first two seasons)

    This is a great series. I loved hearing the truth about the Mason/Dixon line.

    I don't really binge watch unless the weather sucks. But I do stream a lot of shows and watch an episode every couple of nights:

    Current:
    Peaky Blinders

    On my list:
    The Fall
    Homeland (watched early seasons, but kinda forgot about it)
    Boardwalk Empire
    Breaking Bad
    The Sopranos
    Sons of Anarchy
    Top of the Lake
    Black Books

    Recent, awaiting next season:
    House of Cards
    Orange is the New Black
    The Killing

    Recent, completed:
    Dexter

    Recent, but likely won't continue:
    Salem

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    bring on the binge

    Bingeing on both Game of Thrones and The White Queen, as fast as netflix can turn it around

    Last binged on Call the Midwife a true binge it was on demand

    fondly recall my first two binges, courtesy of free HBO for 6 months The Sopranos and Rome.

    The only two series on these posts I've ever seen were Bonanza and the X Files. We don't watch much in the way of series t.v., maybe catch Parks & Rec here and there. The only thing I could say we've "binged" watched was 3 National Lampoon Vacation movies one day over the holidays.

    Most of what I have binge watched has been listed already, so I will simply suggest to you that if have Netflix and are binge-watching crime dramas etc., RIPPER STREET should be on your list.
    Also, though Hulu users should be binge-watching Community. It's sad that I don't see it on the lists like I should. (sniff) .

    Last thing: Only Suburb Repairman listed Black Books, which, though an acquired taste, is some of the best comedy I've ever enjoyed. Extra points to you, SIr.

    I went through as many JJ Abrams shows as I could: Lost, Fringe, Felicity, (there were others). It was fun to see the similarities in all of his work.

    Recently completed and waiting for more:
    Orange is the New Black
    Mozart in the Jungle
    Walking Dead

    Completed but don’t want to watch any more, the son and eldest daughter characters annoyed the crap out of me:
    Transparent

    Current:
    Community
    New Girl
    Once Upon a Time
    (yeah, just been in a light fare mood lately)

    Future:
    I want to rewatch Sherlock – some of the episodes I watched in the post-baby sleep deprivation fog so barely remember.
    I also want to get into Scandal and get back into House of Cards, but just haven’t been in the mood for those type of shows lately.

    I just discovered PBS's Shakespeare Uncovered. Fascinating show that put the play in context of both when they were written and modern times. I've discovered a deeper appreciation of the immortal bard.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?
