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.

I don't do Netflix so I just randomly mentioned a show that I thought would be on Netflix but didn't check its availability. In that same spirit, I nominate Spartacus. It took me about two episodes to get used to the ridiculous level of violence but I'm glad I stuck with it to the end. After a while, the violence gets cartoon-y.

Spartacus is one of those shows you don't watch with your kids or your parents.

As a huge Trek fan myself (favorites being TOS and TNG), FWIW, much of season 1 was pretty bad, IIRC. I watched originally when the show first aired and recall complaining about how crappy it was vs. TOS.

Fortunately, it got better and there were a few good eps here in there in season 2 (and beyond).

Just finished Army Wives.

Well not exactly finished. Got to season 7 and watched 3 1/2 episodes and couldn't go any further. Dynamic of the group changed and just not interested.

Going to start Lillyhammer 2 and Newsroom season 2 (not on netflix but recorded by a friend)

I tried getting every Freaks and Geeks during the marathons but watching on Netflix is easier.

I haven't seen Community either. Or 30 Rock.
I don't think Community is available on Netflix streaming. I would like to watch that from the beginning. I understand it is on Hulu Plus but I don't have that.
