With the new season of “Breaking Bad” starting Sunday night, Chad Rohrbacher plopped down on his couch recently to catch up on some past episodes of the show about a chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin. Twenty-two hours passed before he clicked off the set. Pausing only for bathroom breaks, sandwiches and occasional comments of disbelief from his wife, he watched two entire seasons in one go. “It just kind of snowballed,” the 40-year-old novelist and college professor recalls.
The wife and I killed the first 3 seasons of Sons of Anarchy in about two weeks, and I suspect once the “Breaking Bad” ball starts rolling it won’t stop until all the episodes have been watched.
I also watched the first two seasons of Archer inside of a week.
I must say, not having to wait for the next episode to air, or forced to stew when the season breaks, or even pause for commercial breaks is pretty awesome.
When the wife was recuperating from her brain surgery she DEVOURED Lost. I watched chunks of it when I was with her, and it didn’t really seem to be my bag.
