    The West Wing is a hard one to binge watch, although entirely worthy. The problem is that it's utterly exhausting having to stay focused and pay attention to all the dialogue. Like all Sorkin shows, it's certainly not something that you can effectively watch while you're tired. :)

    Yep, I'm well aware of Sorkin (big fan of Sports Night, and have enjoyed Studio 60 and The Newsroom as well). The West Wing seems like something to watch on a snowy Saturday than at 10PM on a work night. Although I'll probably wind up watching this during the summer when I have more time.

    I binge watched the first two seasons of American Horror Story the last 2 days. Might have to try and find Orphan Black, I see the name keep coming up but I know nothing about it.

    Available for purchase from Amazon, but not with Prime. Does not appear to be on Netflix, but I don't have a subscription to confirm.

    I have Time Warner Cable, so I checked there, and it is available from them on demand - annoyingly missing episodes 7 and 9.

    I watched Orphan Black on demand a while ago, the new season should be starting soon and when it does I would guess they will be on demand again.

    Edited to add, I just checked the BBCAmerica On Demand on FIOS and the entire season 1 is up.

    I love binge watching. I have time off between christmas and new years every year and each year I pick another show to binge on. This year it is Army Wives. Last year was West Wing and before that, many of the others mentioned here.

    I LOVED West Wing and didn't find it hard to binge watch at all. Yes, it took awhile to get thru it all but I loved the episodes. In fact, when I got done (sometime in middle of January) I ended up starting all over again and ran thru all seven seasons again. It was sometime in March that I finally stopped.

    I'm also rewatching West Wing for the 4th time and concurrently with Chuck. On 2nd season now so a ways to go. Before that, I finished "Don't Trust the B*..." and "The Fall" (Gillian Anderson and it's really good!).

    I started finally catching up with Dexter. I watched S1 2x some time ago, and I'm rewatching S2 which I never finished. And I'll go from there. Of course the spring TV season starts tonight so I'm not sure how far I'll get before the DVR fills up.

    I watched the first season of Orphan Black (not on Netflix) and can confirm it's as good as everyone has stated. If you have access to it then I definitely recommend watching. I can't wait for season 2. Looks like it will begin April 19th.

    I think my next binge watch will be Breaking Bad. Although with so many seasons/episodes I'm worried about sleep. ;)

    I have found that binge watching of some crime series isn't good for me, as the negative energy of so much crime affects my personality at least on a temporary basis.

    As far as series, I really liked Dexter to start out with, but it didn't really hold up over the long run like Breaking Bad did.
    West Wing was one of my favorites as was The Sopranos. The crime portion of the Sopranos in large amounts didn't really affect me as there is so much more to the story than crime.
