I'm curious how you guys watch your tv shows? Do you binge watch them as fast as possible or do you prefer waiting week to week and watching the episodes as they air?

I personally hate watching them week to week. I find it frustrating to have to wait and it interrupts the momentum and flow of the show because of the big gaps. I prefer watching series after they air. This doesn't mean I will necessarily wait though, if a show is still on tv and looks good I'll watch it and then watch the episodes week to week after catching up, I just prefer if I don't have to do this :fox-:P: the speed at which I watch it though depends on the show. If it's a really good show and it's my first time watching it I usually just binge watch as fast as I can because I want to see it all lol. If it's a show I want to savour a bit more because it's just so good and I don't want it to end or I'm rewatching something and don't want to speed through like I did the first time sometimes I'll try to slow myself down and only watch a couple episodes a day. If it's a show I'm not as big of a fan of sometimes I've got to push myself to get though it

I don't watch many TV shows, but might I remind everyone that there are shows airing on TV that are shown at a fast pace. Days of Our Lives is daily.

I think watching them after they air at a slower pace is probably better since you get to enjoy the series longer, but I usually end up binge watching anyways xD

Days of our lives is a soap opera, it's part of its genre to play daily. Same goes for certain game shows and news programs. They're also shows that have a limited audience and very few people in this demographic keep up with, hence my conclusion. The vast majority of tv shows play once a week, sometimes twice in the case of certain reality tv shows but nearly all prime time, sitcoms, dramas etc, only play one episode a week. I honestly can't name a notable prime time tv show that plays more than once a week

I usually just binge shows when I find one I like because I usually arrive layout to the scene. But I do prefer watching things as they air since I get to enjoy the show for longer and have something to look forward to.

Some shows I will binge watch, but ones that air when I'm free are good for watching at the time they are released.

When a show is spread over months, it sinks into me... but each episode is far more self-contained this way.
When I binge, it's like a moment. Everything else is pushed aside, and the media takes over my world. I remember a binge, even after individual episodes have faded. I remember when I saw Community, or Futurama, or any of my other favorite shows, and how they feel, very clearly. That's nice.

I like binges.

I prefer to consume media at my own pace, so binge watching is for me. Having to wait a week between episodes is a good way for me to forget to check in.
