    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    I don't get to watch much tv at all anymore, but we used to love some of the marathons that used to run:

    Seinfeld
    Cheers
    Friends
    Law and Order
    Star Wars trilogy

    The Tick (animated) was also a series that we'd tape (yes VHS) and waste a weekend on.

    Any more, the first round of March Madness keeps me glued to several TV's.


    Hoiberg: I have a unique situation here. I grew up here. I went to college here. My family is close and my wife's family is close. I know everyone in the community and my family is very comfortable here. My daughter has dreamed about one thing and that's going to Iowa State. The NBA is great and I love the NBA, but I love Iowa State and the opportunity I have here. We've really built something special and I think we've got real momentum to keep it going even more.

    I forgot about The League and Wilfred. I hate it when I'm coming to an end of those seasons.

    The current Simpsons marathon on FXX is pretty awesome. Every episode ever over 12 days.

    Yeah, NBC took a lot of heat for canceling My Name is Earl (which I loved) in favor of Parks & Rec. Now P&R is one of my favorites but I do still miss Earl.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    I had heard about Burn Notice from my sister-in-law. I went through those episodes pretty quickly. Psych and Monk are two other shows that were binge entertainment for me in the past.
    ​I also "eat up" Star Trek movies and TV series as well.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    I binge on Game of Thrones and Walking Dead after the season as I record it to watch later.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    Binge watching is the way to go these days with DVR and Netflix. Why sit through commercials if you don't have to!?!?!

    Recently I have torn through Season 1 of Silicon Valley and True Detective, the most recent season of Game of Thrones, and got caught up on The Leftovers. Also loving The Simpsons marathon on FXX!

    I know it might sound like I watch too much TV and yeah I probably do. In my defense, I stay home with my daughter during the day and can only stand so much Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Sofia the First :)

    It started out good but got stale quick. Same dumb humor every week. Boring.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    Anything BBC. They are making arguably better shows than we are right now. I binged the whole series of Luther in two days. The BBC The Fall is fantastic and only 5 episodes. Binge-watched that in a night. The other great BBC show is Broadchurch and binged that in a week. That show, by the way, is being remade in the USA on FOX. You may have seen promos for it lately...called Gracepoint. Not sure it can live up to Broadchurch though.

    It would be remiss to not mention the original The Office with Gervais. Heads and shoulders better than the U.S. version even though I think that version is quite good. Binge that series if you haven't.

    Orange is the New Black is a great binge show. So is True Detective. House of Cards is awesome too.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    We binge watch most shows. And then catch up in time to watch the last two or three seasons. It's just how it works out.

    So . . . adios to The Middle. Given our track record it has two more seasons, tops

    Not saying I'd come up with any topics, but would we just wing it? It could mean having five different Friday OTs -- but pitching them through you would take up more time than you already do, I'm guessing.

    Absolutely just wing it! I get PMs with great ideas from posters a lot, so definitely feel free to just post 'em! I probably won't be on CF even a little next week, and will be hit-or-miss for a while after.
