If you binge watch series you usually don't have to view commercials!

I binge watch especially with the programs playing one after another. And I don’t always want to be watching tv so when I do it’s at least a couple hours.

If it's a really good program I will watch episode after episode until I am tired of sitting.

I am spoiled in the binge-watching category. I go about 5 days of the week with no t.v. due to working long hours. So when I do watch televison, I am happy to get many episodes at a time, free from commercials. It's so much better than having to wait each week anticipating just one episode.

I binge because I don’t watch tv unless I’m alone in house and so I watch maybe 4 episodes of something all at once.

It's especially good for the baking shows as it's easier to remember the contestants.

A episode or two at a time to make good shows last a while. Too many times it's one and done because shows that seemed promising don't suit our taste.

Only an episode or 2 now. Tried binge-watching once and regretted it! Felt so guilty afterwards that I got nothing accomplished

Sometimes a show sounds promising, but isn't to my taste. I might watch an episode or two, but not a whole series.

During COVID, we need to fill as much time as possible. If we binge watch a whole series, then we have to search for yet more series to watch.

Too much of anything is not good for you. Besides, if I spend too much time watching, I tend to fall asleep.

If you don't put any holiday decorations up, you can "take them down" quickly.
