  • What are you binging right now?

    I'm quite a ways behind A.Ron on this but I'm finally sitting down and starting The Sopranos for the first time. I've never been big into the gangster/mob genre but I'm 1 season in and definitely enjoying it so far. I really wish there were a solid spoiler free podcast to listen along with but that just means I'll get through the series faster. 
    I am so jealous that you are experiencing that for the first time. Take your time with it, I'd say. It is a very binge-able show. But also does a cool thing that lots of shows don't. It manages to tell self-contained stories in each episode, while also furthering the larger season-long stories. Some of those smaller stories will have huge ramifications. Others just drift off, but it is entertaining as hell. Still my favorite series despite it being early through the gate of Golden Age television. 

    That's why I love re-watching the Sopranos (I think I'm on my third rewatch now) - it's super bingeable, but that episodic structure also makes it easy to take a break and catch back up a month later if that's the mood I'm in. I think that's the reason I've returned to it more frequently than a show like Breaking Bad, which I perhaps enjoyed more during it's first run, but I don't feel as compelled to revisit that often, because once you commit you're kindof locked in for the duration.
    Hmm. I like the way you frame this. I’ve never seen it and have always felt it too daunting. If this is the case and I can step away when I like and not get lost, then that changes the game.

    Probably the only subscription I’ve had for 5 years and never have received an email about what’s going on and updates. 

    Guys should look to Netflix model. They soften the blow months in advance with price hikes. By the time it actually comes you aren’t even mad anymore.
