Pros And Cons Of Binge Watching TV

images The landscape of television has changed inordinately since the launch of Netflix, HBO GO, and other streaming entities (not to mention the initial release of television as DVD boxsets).

Here I€™m going to examine three pros and three cons of marathoning a series.

I'm currently getting my masters in Writing and Publishing in Chicago. I usually fill my time with marathoning great television. My favorite shows are The Sopranos, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, Dexter, The Wire, Lost, and so much more. Count on me to write mainly about television.
