Binge or Live Watch
« on: October 06, 2018, 10:40:51 am »
Would you rather watch a TV series one by one live each week or save them and binge watch at a later date?  I've done both but I probably would rather keep up by the week. However, I watched "Dexter" after it was completed and it was so good I couldn't stop watching it.  Do you have a preference?

I do both, but I actually prefer the anticipation of waiting a week to see what happens next.

I hate that word.  I watch a lot of DVD TV series.  I don't call it "binge watching" because that sounds degrading to me.

I would rather watch it as it comes on TV.  Not one to sit and watch TV for hours on end.  So why waste the time recording  all of them, It is better to just get it over with each week .

We watch when we have time. We always dvr the shows to watch when we can. Some times we will watch 3 or more in a row, it all depends on our time.

I'm all for binge watching.  I like to get a series from the library or a local movie rental store.  Than I can watch at my convenience.  It's also affordable that way.    I'm sort of behind on entertainment so it seems there are plenty of options to catch up on viewing.

I do a little bit of both. I think it depends what show it is and how interested I am with it.

I would rather watch one episode at a time.Sometimes if the one I'm watching is more interesting than usual,I'll stick around for the next episode.I've never binged an entire season of any series.

Well I prefer binge watching.  I only have streaming capability for one thing but the main reason is I am retired and disabled, I am home the majority of the time so if I get into a show I just like to continue on watching.  I can watch a whole season in one day/night lol.  My youngest son calls me the binge watching queen lol.

I would rather watch one episode per week. I've done binge watching before and may do it again in the future.
