Re: Last Show You Binged?

Currently binging Bones. It was one of those shows I always meant to watch but never did. I'm on Season 7 currently. My goal is to make it through Season 8 by the time Season 9 hits Netflix in a week, then binge Season 9 and start watching Season 10 more or less live.

I'm planning to do the same thing with Arrow (blow through Season 2 when it hits Netflix in a few days, then watch Season 3 live).

I'll probably have a lag of a week or two of live episodes of both shows on my DVR, but should be able to catch up by the end of the month (the joys of being between jobs).

I'm stuck on S5 of Bones. I like the show but needed a break from it.

My first priority though is Arrow S2 when it hits Netflix. I will watch S3 live.

I watched the first half of S1 a few times over the years and it never clicked with me. It was OK, and I wanted to keep watching, but it was never "must see." This time it did click, and I can't stop blowing through episodes. It's light enough that I can watch a bunch, but heavy enough that I want to keep watching.

Finished up The Leftovers yesterday. Went through the final 3 episodes last night.

It was a challenging season to watch.

I'm normally not a "Binger" per se, but Fall is fast approaching and I need to start finishing a lot of these summer shows that I got backed up on. Thankfully a lot of them are ending their seasons in the next week or 2.

Bought the DVD for NCIS season 11 and I'm currently binging to get caught up for season 12. Due to mostly a busy schedule last Fall and Spring, I fell way behind and wasn't able to get caught up. I'm currently on the NCIS New Orleans backdoor Pilot episodes on the DVD. So I'm close to finishing up.

Finished NCIS season 11 finally.

12 episodes over the last 2 weeks, including 5 tonight. Good season. Looking forward to season 12. Just amazed at the longevity of it.

Supernatural season 9 for a review. I love the show but never did catch season8 and they sprung season 9 on me. Once I write up then I'll go back and catch up.

Chuck S5. I liked it better than S4 and found the finale to be "sweet" which suits this show.

I think one of the biggest complaints was that for a show based on humor, they made the final few really dark. Castle can get away with it because it is a drama with some wit and humor. Chuck was supposed to be a comedy with action and romance and suspense. To yank everything away like that was disappointing. I did laugh a lot at the Jeffster concert after having grown tired of the bit. It really hit the right cords at the right time.

I think part of it was watching it marathon style, and while the finale was certainly heavier, the next-to-last episodes were just ridiculously heavy for this show. I felt like it went out on the right note.

I wouldn't be opposed to the movie that has been proposed a few times, but as it stands I think it ended well considering the rocky road getting there.

Walking Dead season 4. Wife kept insisting that we catch up before we watched ANY other shows, so I bought a digital copy and we powered through it over a couple weeks. I wasn't looking forward to it at all (I felt that Season 3, especially the finale, was pretty weak). Almost all of S4 was fantastic, though. That mid-season battle... Carol's progression... just... everything. Great stuff, IMO. The finale was too much of a cliffhanger, but at least I don't have to wait too long for it to start back up again.

Re: Last Show You Binged?

I did a binge marathon of Weeds over the last 5 weeks, due mainly to seeing both existing seasons of Orange Is the New Black (that was a separate binge in June that made me more interested in seeing Jenji Kohan's previous series). Before this binge, I had only seen 2 episodes of Weeds years ago, so I watched it all relatively fresh.

Now that I'm done, my view is the show has 4 basic parts: (A) seasons 1 through 3 ; (B) seasons 4 through 7 ; (C) Season 8 through episode 11 ; (D) the 2-part series finale at the end of Season 8 (episodes 12 & 13).

I think the show was best in seasons 1 to 3 (part A) when it was in the town of Agrestic with the whole suburban mom selling pot to support her family and what all that leads to. Once they left Agrestic at the start of Season 4 (part B), the show changed a lot and wasn't quite as good (IMO), but still was rather consistent in quality up until the final season. The final season (part C) of the show is where it seemed to be spinning its wheels a lot, so it was a bit of a drop off in quality but the show was still entertaining and wasn't terrible. Then (part D), the finale happened with a jump ahead of years in time and that was just strange overall.

So Weeds has a run that is (IMO) more similar to shows like Seinfeld or How I Met Your Mother with not too much of a decline over its run, but then capped it all off with a bizarre finale that's too out-of-character with the series that preceded it.

Got lazy and let 7 episodes of Under the Dome build up.

Well, I finished all of them including the last 3 today. What a train wreck.
