    I've been binging Arrow and Suits this month.

    I love Arrow as much as I've loved any show since Buffy. :)

    I recently binged the Wire via Amazon Prime.
    Now I'm doing a rewatch of X-Files on netflix. dont know how many seasons I"ll go.

    skimming the thread, I dont really have an idea of what you'd like.

    You might get some other ideas from the Happy Hour thread, "what are you streaming on netflix".

    I like Alan Sepinwall's reviews. He's doing a rewatch of the first season of Sopranos and writing articles weekly on each episode.
    So while one a week isn't binging, which is what you asked for, it maybe be an enticing accompaniment.

    I agree with Marco, watch Breaking Bad. now.

    I agree about 'Oz'! I loved that show. I watched it when it was airing, and even purchased the DVD set. I really want to watch it again. That was when I got familiar with JK Simmons as an actor. He was brilliant.

    I don't know what you like, what you've seen, or whatever, but 'Mad Men' is a good one for binge-watching. Also, I'm in the middle of 'Breaking Bad' (for the first time) and it's good for binge-watching.

    If you haven't seen 'Six Feet Under' (or even if you have - I've seen the series a few times already), that's a good one, too.

    I binge-watched 'Nip/Tuck' on Netflix last year. I really went into withdrawal when I was finished with that one.

    I watched S01 of 'Better Call Saul' and plan to re-watch it when I finish with 'Breaking Bad'. Besides, by the time S02 comes I will have forgotten all of S01 anyway.

    I'm not sure if they're on your sources, but I'd add
    Ray Donovan and both the UK and US versions of Shameless.

    Binge watching "West Wing" and loving it the second time around. Up to Episode 5.

    Will have to search Netflix for "Six Feet Under." I loved that show. Also enjoyed "Quantum Leap"

    Funny, I don't usually like to repeat shows, but I guess enough time has elapsed for the to seem new again.

    Thank heavens for Netflix, since there's virtually nothing I want to watch on TV right now.

    I see Netflix West Wing has 100 episodes and only 2 each of the last 2 seasons. Where can I find the whole series?

    If you're using the TiVo to watch it, I'm pretty sure this is a long-standing deficiency of TiVo and not related to what shows are available on Netflix. Somehow TiVo has problems showing >100 episodes of a show. I think if you watch a later episode then the window of episodes available moves and you can watch later ones.

    Or something. Honestly, I use my WiiU to watch Netflix now; so much simpler than TiVo's interface.

    The Lost Room, available from Amazon Instant Video, also on DVD from Amazon. Well worth the low price.

    Is it on Netflix? (obviously I mean streaming.. of course they have DVDs) I though Amazon's deal for older HBO stuff _might_ have been exclusive.

    I don't know about this specific 100 episode issue, but while there are definitely some quirks (and the issue you mention is a VERY serious quirk IMHO), as much as I complain about a lot of the things, being able to have a combined recordings + streaming videos (or either alone) OnePass is actually fairly slick.. Even though I record mostly on one Tivo nowadays, I have set up one streaming only SP and will likely do more for some shows for On Demand. (I'd do similar things for Amazon Prime if I used it routinely.)

    And while it certainly isn't the PERFECT method, you can then have it add all streaming episodes, and then you can just DELETE the streaming episodes one by one, just like any other show. So it's a way you can keep track of which episodes you've watched.

    (it's not perfect since you can't go back and get a list of "all the eps I've watched" or something, especially if you for some reason started in the middle then changed it to go back to season 1.. it would probably reset itself..)

    I always save up "The Following", "The Last Ship", and "Under the Dumb" for binge watching.

    It seems we get one of these threads every few months now.

    I'll add Friday Night Lights since I don't think I saw it mentioned yet.
