Oh, yeah--serious binge watcher here. My only appointment TV is Monday night's Castle (if I don't fall asleep before ten) with DWTS beforehand when it's on, and Tuesday's Agents of Shield. I just finished binge watching the first seven seasons of Murdoch Mysteries and have DVDs of the latest Midsomer Murders coming from Amazon. While I'm waiting, I'll probably re watch some favorite episodes from previous binges: Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse (do you sense s theme here?), Babylon 5, Stargate SG1 and Atlantis, Dr. Who (David Tennant or Tom Baker--most others need not apply), Brisco County, or maybe one of the oldies--Ellery Queen, Snoop Sisters, or the Dick Van Dyke Show. I obviously own way too many DVDs!

We're madly watching MOZART IN THE JUNGLE, a wonderful soap opera, really, about he New YOrk Symphony.

And we loved BOSCH--we watched five in a row before we had to go to sleep..and couldn't wait to see the rest.

And soon the new HOUSE OF CARDS!


I believe that The Flash was a rerun this week. (At least I hope it was.) It's supposed to be back on March 17th, the night before Arrow returns.

I've been watching Arrow since the pilot, and let me tell you, it is only getting better. Season 3 is constantly blowing me out of the water.

My biggest "appointment" shows are Once Upon a Time and Castle since I recap both of them for my blog. But in general, I try to still watch the shows on the night they air if at all possible. I am so thankful for the invention of the DVR because I was out playing ultimate Frisbee on Tuesday night, but still was able to watch Agent Carter. And tonight will bring me the season premiers of Survivor and The Amazing Race recorded last night while I was watching other shows.

As I was reading your post, I suddenly realized why this is the golden age of TV. Thanks to DVRs and DVD, we can have story arcs and true character growth on TV. It's much easier to catch an episode you miss and follow a story than it was even 20 years ago. With the changing in how we watch TV, it has allowed those who create the shows to change how they tell us stories.

Okay, I'll stop rambling now.
