My preference is one by one.  I  don't have the time or patience to binge watch Live.

I don't watch anything new on TV. Only watch stuff that I have on tape, on dvd or downloaded. I think binge watching is a stupid word because it sounds like you have nothing else to do. I only watch TV when I am doing something else at the same time much like now as I write this post.

Well, depends.  Retired, but still always busy.

I do both....There are a few programs I like to "binge" with (I too hate that word), keeps me company when I have already seen them.

Live alone, and like familiar voices in the background....Like "Highway to Hell" on The Weather Channel, or "Northwoods Law", "Alaska, the Last Frontier" etc.

I find myself doing both. A few years ago when I was recovering from a surgery, I binge watched Downton Abbey. It was one of those shows where I couldn't limit myself.  I would do 10-12 hours of it a day because I was very immobile at the time. I had always wanted to watch it, but never did - and this was just before the final season aired - so I then watched the last season live.


I am also a fan of the Amazon show Man in the High Castle, which releases an entire season all at once - making it difficult to not binge watch (especially considering it was almost two full years ago that the previous season was released).  I am pacing myself through the third season just released last Friday, but I will probably finish it up in a week or so.


For all of the shows that I enjoy, I am drawn to reading other viewers' reviews and interpretations online - usually on Reddit, and it can be hard to avoid spoilers sometimes.  So I often stay away from any online discussions until I am finished binging (or fully caught up if the show is ongoing).  But my desire to read theories and ideas fuels my need to binge.

I do like to binge watch show that have been on for a while but I just didn't get a chance to watch.

Usually with current shows I watch on demand as I'm usually a week behind.

depends on the show :) I have a huge list of shows I watch, some are on the same time as others. But I make notes of what needs to be watched. Some shows I would love to watch all at once, because I hate waiting till the next week to see what happens!

I do have on demand but most the time they either are really late in getting them uploaded, or they even have missing episodes, so I have to watch as many as I can when they come on live tv

I think it depends on the show. Some shows don't do a very good job of recapping who people are or what happened that got them into that situation. Those are much better done by binge watching. Other shows are fine live week to week.

I prefer to binge but it's nice to live watch every once and a while.
