Binging is normally associated with negative behaviors. For example, people who binge on food usually aren’t the healthiest of individuals. However, binging on television shows is seen as a perfectly normal, healthy way of entertaining yourself over the course of a long weekend.
Binging on TV shows has come to be known as “binge-watching,” a term now so ubiquitous that it has made it into the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary along with a handful of other new tech terms. If you weren’t already aware of it you will be now.
Have you ever partaken in a spot of binge-watching? If so, we’d like to hear all about your experiences in this week’s We Ask You.
Binge Boasting Bonanza
We want to know, What TV Shows Have You Binge-Watched The Most?
Why? Because your insights into what television shows make for the best binge-watching marathons will give us, and the rest of the MakeUseOf readership, an idea of how best to spend the next weekend when vegging-out is preferable to actually going out.
Binge-watching is not a new phenomenon, as we’re fairly sure people used to watch episode after episode of certain TV shows back when VHS was the pinnacle of technology. It’s just that DVDs/Blu-rays, and especially streaming services such as Netflix, have made it so easy to do that it has been given its own term.
But what shows have you found yourself binge-watching like a square-eyed crack addict?
We want to know what television shows you have binge-watched the most, and what format you chose for your binge-watching marathons. Was it Breaking Bad on TiVo? Was it Arrested Development on Netflix? Was it Mad Men on Blu-ray? Tell us below for your chance to win a geeky T-shirt.
When you have answered the question in the comments section below you should take a look at our short guide to binge-watching. It isn’t the most serious guide in the world, but it should stop you making rookie mistakes when embarking on your next marathon TV-viewing session.
