Dead Like Me and Wonderfall are great binge-watches if I'm laid up ill. You can get through them in a day or two.
I regularly go back to The West Wing if there is nothing but crap on TV.

I almost mentioned Dead Like Me as well as a favorite but wanted to keep my list short.

Has to be Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is my favourite series in the entire world, closely followed by Voltron, The Owl House, and The Dragon Prince. Animated shows are the best IMO.
The character arcs are amazing
The dialogue is on-point
And the worlds?! Don't even get me started.

There's something nostalgic about animation, and it's awesome!

I've been meaning to go back and rewatch Star Trek: TOS for a long time now, as i haven't seen it since i was a teenager and i think that there are many episodes that i haven't seen.

I wouldn't call it a binge, as i'm only watching one, maybe two episodes at a time and not every day. It's been an enjoyable experience so far.

Seinfeld has appeared on Netflix so I'm going to binge it. I'm rather excited as I know it's highly regarded and a cultural comedy relic.

Currently loving George and Elaine, both fantastic.

As far as I’m concerned, if it’s something that’s normally scheduled on TV on something like a weekly basis as an example and you’re watching it at a far shorter interval than intended, that’s binge watching.

Oh man this is awesome news for me! Seinfeld is hilarious. As the namesake, Jerry is the most well known, and Kramer is the obvious goon, but George and Elaine were always the drivers of that show for me. Both actors are incredibly talented and their stories are great. It's also a rare show that just kept getting stronger 7-8 seasons in. You are in for a treat!

Jerry is likeable, but not the strongest actor so far, George and Elaine are great and I'm starting to warm to Kramer now. I am really enjoying it. It doesn't feel especially mean (unnecessary personal digs and whatnot that you see in similar comedies) and I like that there's no real plot or development. It's just, well, fun.

Recently I did Firefly and completed with Serenity
(It's quite easy because I've got them all saved on my tablet)

The Good Place a few months back - I'd watched it all when it came out but binging it over a week was an absolute joy.

Currently binging on The Orville - first few episodes felt a little too season 1 TNG, but it got into it's stride quickly. Hopefully ST Strange New Worlds will capture the same feeling, back to planet of the week Star Trek (not that I haven't enjoyed Discovery or Picard - there's room for all types of Star Trek in my life)

So, because I am a binge pro, I am up to season three already. And like most sitcoms it really feels like it’s hitting its stride now — but on the other hand, as a ‘show about nothing’, it’s not like anything major has changed, it’s as good as it ever was but just better. Jerry himself is now starting to feel more like a character, rather than a stand-up comedian surrounded by crazy people. Watched ‘The Pen’ last night and loved it, it was relentless, just brilliant. Steeeellllaaaa!
