I need to preface this post by stating that I’ve never been a sci-fi geek. What I mean is that I’ve never seen or appreciated a television show, film, book, etc. solely based on the fact that it’s in the realm of science fiction or fantasy. That’s not to say I disdain anything sci-fi. Far from it, in fact. If a show or film that’s well produced happens to be sci-fi is okay with me.
I only bring up that clarification on science fiction as what I want to write about in this post has to do indirectly with a sci-fi show that Male Mode Me has taken an interest to in the past year or so. The name of the show is not germane either, although I’ll link to its web page here. What is germane, though, is the fact that the cable network airing the show is running its current season event-style, 10 episodes over 3 nights instead of the traditional one episode per week. In the modern day vernacular, this is what’s known as “binge-watching,” that is sitting down on your posterior and watching several hours of television (especially episodes from the same series) in succession.
