Now that streaming has changed viewing habits, what are your preferences? Or does it depend on the show?
For me, I still prefer the traditional one episode a week of shows. I love having something to look forward to and having a show to watch or anchor my night. I like having a slow build to a season storyline. Even shows that are released all at once, I don’t usually burn through an entire season in a few days. I have at times, but not usually.
I know many folks love binging a show, but then, I’m left waiting for a year or more for new episodes. I don’t have a lot in life, so I need to make things laugh haha.
For some shows that I have watched before, or have already ended, I may be more likely to binge.
So, what are your thoughts? Always binge? Prefer to wait? Or depends on the show?May 3, 2021 at 3:12 pm #1204241323
One for week keeps the buzz alive for a longer time
And it actually feel like we’re in the universe that’s being created.
For Your Emmy Consideration:
Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series, THE GOOD LORD BIRD in ALL CATEGORIES.
Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.May 3, 2021 at 3:14 pm #1204241328
My favourite is probably the Apple model of releasing the first three then weekly. Allows you to start off with an initial binge but then get the thrill of waiting each week to watch.May 3, 2021 at 3:28 pm #1204241350

Oh that seems good! I think Hulu has done that before too maybe?
I also agree with Victor about feeling immersed.
That being said, I don’t feel there is a right or wrong answer to this, it is totally personal preference 🙂May 3, 2021 at 3:47 pm #1204241373
It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!May 3, 2021 at 5:55 pm #1204241518
I’m a little bit in between. I like to wait until the season is fully out or mostly out but then I watch one a day.

Generally speaking, one per week makes the viewing so much more rewardingMay 3, 2021 at 10:10 pm #1204241672
The model that Mad Men and Handmaid’s Tale promote.May 4, 2021 at 2:50 am #1204241871
I like both, but I prefer spacing episodes out for dramas (per week, or one per night) and binging for comedies.
Emmy: Ego Nwodim ("SNL"), Nico Santos ("Superstore"), Lolly Adefope ("Shrill"), MJ Rodriguez ("Pose")
BAFTA: Leila Farzad ("I Hate Suzie")May 4, 2021 at 3:56 am #1204241898
I enjoy watching something like Mare of Easttown week to week but I wouldn’t watch something like Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes weekly.May 4, 2021 at 4:10 am #1204241905
It depends on the show.
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")May 4, 2021 at 11:49 am #1204242397
To be honest, I think the format that I enjoy the most at the moment is the HBO Max format with 2/3 episodes per week. I always find binge-watching a little too much and one per week I feel like it’s not enough.
FYC Emmys: Zosia Mamet for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Wunmi Mosaku for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, It's a Sin for every possible category: Limited Series, Writing, Directing, Actor (Olly Alexander), Supp. Actor (Callum Scott-Howells) and Supp. Actress (Keeley Hawes and Lydia West).May 4, 2021 at 6:32 pm #1204242845
One per week is so much better. Each episode feels more like an event. A little bit of anticipation can be a good thing. And isn’t it better when a show you love is ‘in season’ for 2-3 months instead of one day?
Also I like discussing what’s going on with TV shows in between episodes. Binging turns it into a solitary endeavor.
