The Anti-Binge-Watch Shows

Some shows just don’t lend themselves to binge-watching, but are still worth watching…or might be a good diversion from time to time. I’ve found at least two such shows:

Wynonna Earp

Only one season is available on Netflix so far, so I’ve been taking it slow on this one based on a graphic novel. Comparisons have been made to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and it does have some of that camp, although it hasn’t really settled into its own rhythm yet. It has a beat; it is just a bit erratic so far, but worth checking out to see where it goes.

Dark Matter

Yet another SyFy show. The first two seasons are available on Netflix, the third is coming this month, and all three seasons are available on Amazon Prime. Over the last five or so years, I haven’t been able to read science fiction, but this science fiction show caught my eye and I’ve been hooked ever since. Likewise, I was hooked by the Battlestar Galactica reboot, although that was on a whole other level. This one has its ups and downs, but if you stick with it, it gets really good. I guess I’m a sucker for ensemble casts too. What can I say?

What shows for you are anti-binge-watch shows?

  1. Once we get Broadchurch season three we will binge it. I loved the first season and the mystery wasn’t revealed until near the end, making for good suspense.


  2. I would put The Handmaid’s Tale on that list of anti-binge shows. There is no way I could watch back-to-back episodes. I feel the same about Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and a few others. Just too dark and taxing to be able to watch more than one on a given day.


  3. Black Mirror. So dark and disturbing. I watched two episodes back to back once and was depressed for days. Nope. Interesting and super well done but nope… cannot binge on them. Same with American Horror Story (any season).
