Weekly / Binge release; fight!

    So, it has come up enough times that I'm dead curious, thinking a poll might a fun way to gauge the popular preference in 2021/2022: do people prefer a single episode released per week (popular with Amazon and traditional networks); or all episodes dropped at once? (Something Netflix does). Or something else? (Wheel of Time dropped 3 episodes, then went weekly; a good middleground).

    Me? Weekly; I like the anticipation, the wondering what the next episode might bring and the buzz a good show can create from the tease. Binging feels like it cheapens the medium; reducing stories to "content" to be gorged in one day and forgotten the next.

    Dropped all in one go

    The lot in one go, I find myself losing interest having to wait week to week.
