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.


. . .Currently: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (I've seen every episode at least 2x but I'm still going through the whole series again)
The episode with Lil' Kev is my favorite.

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.

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.

Californication. My goodness, there's a lot of T&A in that series.

Ended up being stymied on Whitechapel - Amazon pulled it down off Prime availability with on episode in Series 3 left and all of Series 4. I guess I'll get back to it some day.

Knocked out The Last Enemy a week or so ago - a good watch for fans of the current BBC Sherlock - it's basically Benedict Cumberbatch's audition tape...

Current binge watch: Bosch

Recently completed: TurN (about Revolutionary War spy)

I'm now working my way through Black Mirror, which is like a modern version of Twilight Zone & focused on dystopian technology

I'm binging on Game of Thrones season 4 this week (as well as cramming through the audio versions of A Feast for Crows and A Dance With Dragons) in preparation for season 5 of GoT starting up this Sunday.

The new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt produced by Tina Fey. Hilarious.

Recently started "Babylon 5". That show was underrated.

Love this show. JLD is a goddess.

Have been watching "Orphan Black" over the past couple of weeks (free if you have Amazon Prime) and I highly recommend, reminds me of the X-Files with the biotech and military conspiracies. My sister apparently binge-watched the entire first season over the weekend (10 episodes). I am so impressed by Tatiana Maslany's ability to convincingly act out all of the distinct "clone" characters.

Over the past few days my wife and I watched the first 9 episodes of The Brink on HBO. Jack Black as a low-level diplomat and Tim Robbins as a womanizing Secretary of State trying to handle a coup in Pakistan doesn't sound like a promising premise (and I think HBO's comedies can be hit or miss) but this is pretty good. It's a nice combination of dark humor and just enough drama. I'm sad there's only one episode left, but it looks like it's been picked up for a second season.

Also, John Larroquette should always be cast as a sleazeball or weirdo.

I did Walking Dead, I just started Heroes. Never actually watched any of those shows before. Not bad.

That's next on my list, but otherwise it's Peaky Blinders, Sherlock, and OITNB. I don't have time to binge watch though, maybe an episode here or there every few nights.

Currently flying through Dr. Who on Netflix, can't believe I waited so long to give this show a try. It's amazing!

Before that I was binge watching Bob's Burgers, which in my opinion bears a lot in common with The Simpsons back during their stronger seasons.I think it's awesome that a lot of newer shows with more of a positive and feel-good approach can still be so well written (although I still love darker shows like The Wire, Sopranos, etc.).

Love Dr. Who. Here's a Bad Wolf picture outside Cadillac Ranch.

I hate TV. That being said; I can't believe no one has mentioned Wet Hot American Summer. Gold.

We did go through that one... twice already. I loved the movie when it came out and the show was equally hilarious. Possibly even better than the movie. Paul Rudd and David Wain were great! There's a pretty good interview with WHAS creators David Wain and Michael Showalter on the Podcast "Bullseye" from a couple of weeks ago that's worth checking out.

On a The State related note, there are rumors that there are scripts for a couple dozen more episodes of Reno 911! that NetFlix wants to produce and is working with Comedy Central to get the rights to. I hope that happens.
