Hulu did this for all 3 seasons of "The Handmaid's Tale" and I can honestly say that, if they hadn't done that, I probably would've not gotten into it as much. I think one reason I got SO into "Lost", circa 2004-2009, was because I was strung along. Gives ya' time to think about what happened and what could happen. "Game of Thrones" was the same way....

I am just the opposite. I intentionally wait to start watching a series (not a season, I mean the entire series) until it is has been cancelled / finalized so that I can binge watch the entire series in a couple of days / weeks. I don't like having to remember or re-watch previous seasons to remind myself of all the various storylines in the series. FX used to piss me when I had to wait so long between seasons of "The Shield". Before each season started, I would have to Netflix (DVD by mail) all of the previous seasons to get back up to speed. I have totally sworn off watching weekly programming on the networks.

I'm not to that extent, but I do think I enjoy the nuances of shows much better when I binge multiple seasons as opposed to waiting YEARS between the first show and a show in Season 3.  I started Breaking Bad that way before I caught up to real time and it helped a lot.  I just binged Ray Donovan and am now caught up when it comes back next week.  I've done this with a few others also.  I wish I had binged Mr. Robot because I'm totally lost on the last season and can't remember anything.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
