    Hi everyone,

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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 🙂

    Binge.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    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 rewarding

    I like both, but I prefer spacing episodes out for dramas (per week, or one per night) and binging for comedies.

    FYC: "What We Do in the Shadows" and "Severance" in everything, Natasha Rothwell ("Insecure"), Sophie Thatcher ("Yellowjackets"), Renee Elise Goldsberry ("Girls5eva"), James Caverly, ("Only Murders in the Building")

    I enjoy watching something like Mare of Easttown week to week but I wouldn’t watch something like Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes weekly.

    It depends on the show.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    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.

    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.
