    I saw an interesting post on Instagram asking if fans wanted the season released all in one go or weekly (it was an opinion thread not an official request) and I was wondering what you would prefer?

    For me I think I side with a week by week release, simply because I'd like to discuss it as it goes and not have people talking about the ending, sharing their opinions before I get a chance to watch it all... :cheese

    When I was younger I would have said all in one go and probably binged the whole thing in a few days. Now, especially since joining TV.net, I would prefer to discuss the episodes and be able to avoid spoilers same as you, Eliza Sedai. I don't watch all that much of TV anymore either, so if we get all in one day, I'll maybe watch one or two episodes, forget about the rests, and be spoiled :grumble

    I like binge format, to be honest.

    I'd prefer week to week. You get a larger sense of suspense, more time to discuss individual episodes with other fans, and a lower chance of spoilers if you're not able to watch every episode quickly.

    I want week-to-week because I want to host fantabulous themed watch parties where I get to dress up in costume and make WoT food and all my friends come over and we have a blast and then spend an hour discussing it after and playing games. I want to enjoy the heck out of this show, and not just be bingeing it as fast as possible by myself so I don't have it ruined for me.

    I like your idea, Aratouial. :lol I don't binge very often, and I'm in a long-distance relationship, and it's hard to get schedules to work together. Week-by-week episodes would be awesome, right, @Ignis al'Caleum ? ^^

    Pretty much what Aratouial said. I've recently gotten two of my friends reading the series and my roommate is excited to watch as well and I want WoT episodes to be a weekly EVENT. I want to go all out.

    If they release it all at once, I fear people will binge it and then forget about it before the next season comes out.

    Week by week would be amazing, but Amazon usually releases their work a season at a time. I’ve noticed that this hasn’t kept the excitement from slowing. People were really excited about season 2 of Jack Reacher.

    If that happens - we will make something work to watch it together

    Ah, hm. I hope they make an exception in this case. :p Either way, it'll be nice to watch with you. :kiss

    I'll be happy with either.

    It would be nice to have episode by episode discussion threads here so people who watch it slower won't have to avoid spoilers.

    I also like the week to week idea. That way the Jersey crew can get together and discuss episodes and not worry about spoilers

    I want to binge watch it. As much as I enjoy a good sense of suspense and waiting, I always feel much more involved when I can watch it in one go.

    I would prefer week-to-week. Even with my favourite shoes binge watching can be a little too much and I don't have the self-control to have it all there and not watch it all :look

    Recently, I watched the Mandalorian week by week and the Witcher in a binge. Now I definitely prefer week-to-week because even though I want more of both, I think I'm craving more of the Witcher universe since it ended so quickly.

    I agree, watching the Mandalorian changed my mind about week-by-week releases. I don't have much time to watch so 1 a week would work perfectly.

    I can do either, but I would probably rather binge watch it.

    Week to week would be my ideal situation. I love watch parties, I love the discussions, it's totally a community builder. Bring on the week-to-week delivery!
