Binge Watching

Robert Horton and Steve Scher take up the modern media phenomenon of binge watching TV shows.  Terrible term, don’t you think? Though it does capture the feeling of the effort.

Among the shows we touch on;  “Mad Men,” “Bored to Death,”  “The Soprano’s.”  Frankly the list is too long and reveals how we spend too much of our evenings.

Also we touch on Charles Dickens. When reading the great serializer’s novels, is that akin to binge watching?

If you like Dickens, check out “Mr Pip,” a movie from 2012 starring Hugh Laurie.  It is on Netflix and it is good.  The Dickensians among us will get the reference.
