    I would have disagreed with you if I hadn’t just spent a few weekends ago binge-watching Daredevil. I really felt exhausted by the end. It was so dark and bleak that, towards the final episodes I was just ready for it to be over. I don’t think it would have been so bad in weekly increments.

    I accept that it’s totally my fault but I was so committed to being a part of the event of it that by the time it was over, I could barely even register any of what was happening on screen. Kimmy Schmidt was lighthearted enough that each episode was a delight but I probably should have come up for air at least a few times during Daredevil’s multi-hour slog.

    This release model can be a drag on social relations, too. Some friends of mine made the unfortunate mistake of having a barbeque the same day of the Arrested Development release. Most people came late, having stayed up all night watching all thirteen episodes and then going to sleep after that. Then there was the physical divide of people who could talk about the season and people who couldn’t.

    A three episodes a week schedule would be a pretty good compromise between the traditional and the binge styles, I think.

    Look. if you don’t want to cater gay weddings with your pizza then don’t. And if you don’t like watching shows all at once ditto. Don’t shake your fist in the air with incredulity at the internet because people are doing things that in what is only your opinion wrong. Your personal preference does not necessitate a programming restructure at Netflix. I requires that you have the intestinal fortitude to not, god forbid, be apart of a couple conversations.
