Archive Bingeing is common for first-timers of [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife this wiki]], (and [[TheOtherWiki the other one]]) as ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' [[http://xkcd.com/609/ has pointed out]]. It is also an increasingly common phenomenon with regard to TV shows, now that it is possible to buy whole seasons of a {{Long Runner|s}} on DVD or watch them on streaming video services such as {{Creator/Netflix}}.

Archive Bingeing is common for first-timers of [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife this wiki]], (and [[TheOtherWiki the other one]]) as ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' [[http://xkcd.com/609/ has pointed out]]. It is also an increasingly common phenomenon with regard to TV shows, now that it is possible to buy whole seasons of a {{Long Runner|s}} long running show on DVD or watch them on streaming video services such as {{Creator/Netflix}}.



* ''Series/RetroGameMaster'': To be expected of a LongRunner. At the time of writing, there's 17+ seasons and 150+ episodes roughly an hour each. Have fun. To be fair, the premise of the show has changed little through the years, but following the Assistant Directors that are in or off the team is rather impossible for a newcomer without the aid of an episode guide.
* As a LongRunner, ''Series/DoctorWho'' has a lot of associated ArchivePanic, to the point where the BBC came out and said it was fine to only watch the new series without having to bother with all twenty-six years plus-or-minus {{Missing Episode}}s of Classic stuff. Amongst those who ''do'' want to watch all twenty-six years of Classic stuff, it's common fan wisdom that some serials simply cannot be watched in this format and if you're not getting on with a story, you may want to space it out to one episode a day. The stories were designed to be watched an episode at a time with a week's gap between each one, with no archives even ''available'' for most of the programme's run. Certain scenes that seem to have major PacingProblems when binged can actually be very effective when consumed in this manner. (Of course, some serials are just poorly-paced and boring no matter how you watch them.) 1981 had a "Five Faces of ''Doctor Who''" marathon which, in an era with no reruns, was pivotal in codifying fan stereotypes for each era (a blog post is available [[http://www.philipsandifer.com/2012/02/outside-government-1-five-faces-of.html here]] which goes into its effect on the fandom). On top of that, some serials (such as "The Ark in Space") were edited into a film and broadcast around Christmas.
