To binge or not to binge, that is the question the millennial generation is always asking.
And most are probably asking it right now while sitting at their desks as Netflix just dropped your new superhero obsession Daredevil at midnight PT. Well, it's the question they are asking if they aren't already several episodes deep into the drama starring Charlie Cox as blind lawyer-turned-vigilante Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil). But is this one Netflix series you should savor, pacing yourself, or should you just down all the episodes like you're home alone on a Friday night with a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. (Not like we're speaking from experience or anything!)
So what advice did the creative team and cast have for those wondering whether to binge or slow-burn Daredevil?
Steven S. DeKnight, showrunner: "It's that kind of ice cream question—do you eat the whole thing at once? It's up to the viewer. Personally, I tend to watch at most five or six at a time and then I need a nap. But the great thing about this show is I do think it is binge-worthy. I recently had an opportunity to watch all 13 episodes straight through to get a feel of what that would be like and I was delighted that it did hold up pretty well to binge watch. And then you can go back again, because there's a bunch stuff that will make even more sense when you see it the second time. So binge watch the first time and then savor."
Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page): "I think whatever you need to do. It's cool. Charlie [Cox] was like, 'I'm halfway through an episode of House of Cards.' Like, you can stop and start however you want. However, if I were to recommend, I would say watch the whole thing, only stop to eat and pee. That's my suggestion."
Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson): "To each his own. I personally binge-watch. I have no patience, I can't wait. So I would suggest doing that. I think that's sort of the beautiful thing about Netflix is that you can sort of pick up and leave off wherever you want or you can watch it all at once and then you can go back and watch it again. So, we're really lucky to be on Netflix."
Jeph Loeb, executive producer: "From everybody that I've talked to, it's very addicting. So I can't tell you what to do, but if you find yourself not going to work on Friday, I can't really be held responsible."
Daredevil is now available to stream on Netflix.
