Bingeing is how people watch TV now. Someone recommends a show to you, you find it on Netflix or somewhere in the cloud, and, if it's a show that grabs you, you watch episode after episode, season after season, all within a short time frame, until you've watched them all, commercial-free and ending before you really want them to end.
This is the first time I have re-binged, though. I'm re-watching Mad Men, probably my favorite of the shows that we've binged on, and am back in the middle of Season 6. It's a drama about a Madison Avenue advertising firm, all taking place in the '60s, which of course is my era. Ya gotta love main character Don Draper, the ultra-suave yet screwed-up ad genius, and all of the other characters that play out during the most tumultuous yet lovable decade of my lifetime.
My other favorite binge-worthy shows so far: Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under, Downton Abbey, The Newsroom.
I'll be looking for a new one soon. Got any suggestions?
