I’m not sure where I stand on binge-watching. Paul’s made some excellent points in the past, and there are pros and cons to both sides. One of the things that does happen when you binge watch, though, is that it becomes second-nature. You start to binge-watch current shows. At least, I do.
So when, for example, the Olympics are on (or I get insanely into Mass Effect), I can temporarily forget about shows that I really like. I’ll wake up one Saturday and remember that New Girl exists and, lo and behold, there are 3 new episodes. Pro: watching a bunch of episodes at once is really fun. Con: it’s hard to get a dialogue started with friends or even randomly over the internet when everyone is watching at a difference pace.
All of this is leading up to the fact that, hey, if you haven’t been keeping up with Community, you probably should, because, spoiler alert, Season 5 is killing it.
