    There are two kinds of shows -- shows to watch randomly and shows to watch in sequence. While either can be binge watched, sequence shows should be binge watched.

    Quantum Leap
    The Pretender
    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men
    The Sopranos

    If it is time you wish to kill, and kill dead, Netflix recently added "Pablo Escobar - El Patron del Mal" with English subtitles (finally!). There are 74 episodes to enjoy and you get to watch the lovable cocaine lord rise from impish tyke to murderous drug lord. I've finished the first episode already and it isn't even yet summer.

    Did they at least tell you in which order to watch the episodes?

    FOX didn't air them in order.

    I can't believe no one mentioned Daredevil yet.
    White Collar
    Burn Notice (can get a bit repetitive, but it's pretty good)

    Olivia, so ...you do not have access to HBO or Showtime?
    I wanted to underscore that point, as there has been suggestions shows that are only available thru those sources.

    I did (post #19)... IMO a cut above many of the rest of the hero genre.

    I mentioned it, as well (post #10)

    Though, to be fair to CraigBob, he did say he couldn't believe nobody had mentioned it....

    It is, I've watched the first two episodes of West Wing.

    I second Terriers as something to binge and since it's only one season, you can get through it easy.

    I'm binging on Dexter. I'm about to finish up S5 (I have been binging this on and off during lulls in the TV schedule). It's a good show to binge since it's really serialized and it makes for an easier continuity.

    The obvious ones to binge are some of the great HBO series over the years. The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and last season's True Detective. Not sure how many of these are available on Netflix but all are on HBO Go if you have it.

    Sense8 - my newest binge.

    As other have noted, a week to week viewing might not be enough to grab you and pull you in.

    IIRC Amazon Prime has a lot of the HBO Back-catalog.

    Mentioned in one of the Sense8 threads, a show that was totally written with binge watching in mind, and I'm only up to ep 4 or 5, it was pretty late last night when I stopped.

    I don't think it would have worked in a network week to week environment.
