Yes. Nice series.

More locals murdered than Cabot's Cove.

Eighteen Seasons. 90 minute episodes. Imagine you have a ways to go. Either that or it's an EPIC Binge.

Cheers, BostonTim

Just finished season 2 of Fargo last week. DEFINITELY worth it. Did a nice tie in to the first season at the end.

The last show I binge watched was Breaking Bad and it was totally worth it. A lot of tv sucks, but the quality of character development, innovative stories, sense of place/culture, unexpected plot in some premium series is up there with any Academy Award movie.

I think the modern trend of high quality drama series started with Oz and the Sopranos on HBO.

The best show I've ever binge watched (or just watched period) was The Wire. I encourage anyone who hasn't watched it to give it a shot. The realism of how it portrays the problems of urban America and its institutions - the drug dealers, cops, politicians, schools, newspapers, and the kids caught in the middle is on a level nothing else has come close to. It's not some preachy thing - awesome character development, suspense, humor, tragedy, gritty realism. Need to watch it from the beginning, though.

Idris Elba (Stringer Bell) is pretty good in a BBC series called Luther that's on PBS now, where he plays a tough, weary London homicide cop. It blew me away when I found out that him, Dominic West (McNulty) actually have cockney accents and the the guy who played Mayor Carchetti was from Ireland. Never thought for a minute that they weren't from America/Baltimore.

I've got mixed opinions on binge watching. It's fun to be able to kick back on your couch and immerse yourself in great storytelling for as long as you want - like getting into a good novel and burning through 300 pages, but you lose something from watching the episodes a week at a time when they air. Like with some of the great Soprano's episodes, the impact of the scenes Adrianna or Ralph Cifferetto got killed would have been different if I'd watched the next 4 episodes immediately afterward. It can be cool to have a week to take things in and wonder what's going to happen next.

Since there hasn't beem much lighter fare mentioned, I figure this show is worth plugging. Humor is always a subjective thing, but I found this show to be a quirky, smartly-written and funny fish-out-of-water story that a lot of people will like.

Kimmie (Ellie Kemper) is great but, her pal Titus Andromedon is, I thought, laugh out loud funny. He's awesome. Great cast with plenty of star cameos and sometimes it's nice to watch a quick half-hour episode of something that doesn't involve death, blood or explosions.

My daughter turned us on to this, We loved it.

Prior to Battlestar Galactica, my previous binges were 24, Prison Break and Band of Brothers which was DVD box set and utterly brilliant.

We liked this show as well, although I thought it faded a bit at the end. It felt like they were running out of material. Hopefully the 2nd season will be good.

Another Netflix show we loved was Daredevil.

One more foreign binge that I thought was worth recommending is Top of the Lake. (netflix).

It's a TV series from New Zealand about a female detective, played by Elizabeth Moss (who is awesome) who returns to her small home town to take care of her Mother and ends up entangled in an investigation into the murder of a 12 year-old pregnant girl.

It's smart, classy, dark, beautiful to look at and filled with unusual characters and plot twists. Nothing is as it seems. I got hooked by this one in about 15 minutes.

I really tried Breaking Bad. But like SOA I got all nervous for some reason and had to stop. My best binging comes from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

I didn't binge watch it, but came close. I can't recall another series that brought me to tears when it ended. The final scene did just that.

Babylon 5.

IMHO, the first 4 seasons are some of the best Sci-Fi ever done, big screen or small.

5th season wasn't so great because they didn't think there would be a 5th season, so wrapped up most of the original arc in 4.

Before that I did Firefly.
