"Whether you’re following The Bachelorette or Star Trek: Discovery weekly or setting aside an hour every Saturday to watch Gilmore Girls, I’m here to advise you to make appointment viewing a priority as we potentially head into another hard winter stuck quarantining inside," says Leah Marilla Thomas. "Stop bingeing everything! You’ll thank me for it. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve binged shows this year, too. What else was I supposed to do with my abundant couch time? When an entire season drops on a streaming service, it’s hard not to want to finish it ASAP, the better to avoid spoilers. I watched The Queen’s Gambit in one sitting like everyone else. I spent a week so deep in Hannibal episode after Hannibal episode that I couldn’t place why exactly I didn’t feel like cooking the following weekend. That was a surreal experience I wouldn’t trade away. Regardless, pick a show, any show, and give it a time slot if it doesn’t already have one. I’m not asking people to give up a good ol’ marathon completely. Just make a point to also slow down and do things the old-fashioned way for a change. Even if you just do this once a week, it will make a world of difference."
