I now wait for a whole series to appear on IPlayer, Netflix, Amazon etc as the thought of waiting for a whole week for the next episode is too much. I usually watch 2 episodes at a time.

Do you spread out your watching as in days gone by or binge ?

We tend to watch one or two per night, but not every night.

It will take a few weeks to get through a season, depending on how enthralling the show is, and if we both enjoy it.

I still watch things weekly. The only time I don’t is if there is a clash of programmes I want to watch, which doesn’t happen often nowadays.

My sister binge watches several episodes at a time. This doesn’t appeal to me at all. I like to look forward to the next episode if it’s a good series.

Queen’s ‘I want it all, and I want it now’ comes to mind re binge watching.

I tend to binge watch. If I have to wait for a week for the next episode I have trouble remembering what happened!

We are watching far too much TV these days.
When we find a good series we binge watch. I don’t seem to have the patience to wait a week and have to allocate a particular time to watch the next episode.

I like binge-watching.
If you are reading a good book you don't only read a chapter a week!

Never binge watch, if there’s a clash, we record one.
