* There are almost ''1700'' "[[https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=drew+pickles+goes+to Drew Pickles Goes To]]" videos and '''OVER 220,000''' "[[https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=secret+missing+episode+of Secret Missing Episodes]]", and that's not even including the countless other WebVideo/BarneyBunch videos. In short, you have to be [[OverlyLongGag really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really]] homosexually gay to watch all of this shit.

* ''WebVideo/PoohsAdventures''. Several videos made by several makers, almost all taken down due to copyright. Which video should you start with depends...
** Most videos tend to split each other in parts, so naturally, depending on the video, you'll be taking a while to watch them all (if so).

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. Watch (or listen to) one serial a week and you'll finish the classic series in a little over three years.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''.''Series/DoctorWho'', which ran continuously from 1963 to 1989, got a TV movie in '96, and resumed regular airing in 2005. At the start of 2017, the show stands at a whopping '''832 episodes''' split into 264 serials (counting the 1996 telemovie) in 35 seasons (with number 36 coming later this year). Watch (or listen to) one serial a week and you'll finish the classic series in a little over three years. Watch/listen to one serial a ''day'' and you'll finish the entire show in just under a year. There's a reason the show reset the season counter to 1 when it started up again in 2005.



** [[http://doctorwhosurvival.blogspot.com This blog]], "Survival", details one person's attempt to watch all 700-odd episodes in ''four months'' due to extenuating circumstances (imminent moving to New Zealand). It makes for quite a read while it lasts, although the commentary peters out early in the Fourth Doctor's career when a sort of mid-flow Archive Panic sets in and it becomes clear that stopping to type has to be sacrificed in order to actually watch all the damn episodes in time.

** Some people have speculated that the ArchiveBinge viewing habits developing from VOD use are part of what caused a small dip in ratings, as new viewers are intimidated by the sheer size of the programme. For anyone who feels that way and is reading this text - it is fine, it is an anthology series with very little in the way of continuity, many of the 1960s serials [[MissingEpisode no longer exist]], and no-one[[note]] [[FanDumb worth paying attention to, anyway]][[/note]] will judge you if you want to start with one of the new guys.

* The WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat series has been around for 97 years, so there's a lot of ground to cover if you want to experience the whole series. For animation, you have the original silent theatrical cartoons and the three Van Beuren era shorts (while many of the silent shorts are lost, quite a few survive and it can take a while to sit through the surviving ones), the 126 made-for-TV cartoons by Joe Oriolo (which run six to seven minutes each), [[WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie a theatrical movie]], the mid 90's TV revival cartoon series ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'' (which lasted 21 episodes, with three shorts in all but a couple of them), the [[SpinoffBabies toddler aimed spinoff]] ''Anime/BabyFelixAndFriends'' (which ran for 65 five minute episodes), and a 2004 direct to video Christmas special ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatSavesChristmas''. The comics are where one will really start running into trouble--the Felix comics started in 1923, with the newspaper comics and comic books running a solid 40 year run up to the 1960's. And then you have the 80's newspaper comic crossover with WesternAnimation/BettyBoop to look out for (which has never been reprinted), and a short lived early 90's comic book revival. After that, you have a history book and some comic compilations, three video game tie-ins, the very obscure live action TV series ''Felix the Cat Live'', and a monstrous amount of toys and merchandise to wrap it all up. Good luck!

* If you wanted to show those film buffs who's boss and knock off the entire CriterionCollection, it's going to take some time. There are 600+ entries (some of which contain 3 or 4 full-length films or a multitude of short films). So even if you watched one movie every day, it would take you nearly two years. Don't forget the occasional movie in there like ''Berlin Alexanderplatz'' or ''The Human Condition'', both of which are 10+ hours long.

* ''LoadingReadyRun'' has being producing at least one video a week for over 7 years. Even at an average of only of 3 minutes per video, that's 18 hours of video to watch. Then there's all the bonus videos and spinoffs....it will take you a while to watch them all, fortunately continuity is only important within the commodoreHustle sub-series. ''LoadingReadyRun'' later struck a deal to produce their shorts for ''Website/TheEscapist'', and from then on their video appeared there. There's only a few months worth of material there (so far), so starting with the stuff on ''Website/TheEscapist'' is a good idea.

* TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons show ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' has episodes that last three hours on average, with the longest one being nearly ''six hours long''. With 58 episodes as of this writing, and new episodes being released weekly, it can take a long time for a newcomer to get caught up.

* ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}''. The 1973 anime only lasted 26 episodes of 30 minutes each. That's around a paltry 13 hours of nonstop viewing. Then comes the 1979 anime, which ran all the way to 2005. How many episodes are there, you ask? '''''1787 half hour episodes''''', which a simple calculation will tell you that it will take around ''around 37 days and 8 hours of nonstop viewing to complete''. Wait, it gets better! 2005 wasn't the year it ended, but the year the show was overhauled! It ran another '''''622 half hour episodes as of September 10th, 2014''''', or ''almost 13 days nonstop''. To enjoy all the anime alone, you will need ''53 days and 8 hours'' of nonstop binging. And that's not counting the movies, of which there are roughly ''34'' of them. And the kicker is, ''the episodes are still being made'', with new episodes coming out ''every weekday'' and new movies ''annually''. Or the manga- even though the collected manga are only 45 volumes long, the rest of the manga that aren't in the collection are also printed across various other magazines since 1969.

* The band Tangerine Dream has recorded over 100 albums and [=EPs=]. If you're a sucker for getting the back catalogue of any newly-discovered band, this one might bankrupt you. Panic ensues until you realize a ''lot'' of them are [=EPs=] with two to four tracks. So if you can find a music download site that sells by the track, you can grab up to ten of them for under 20 bucks.

Consider: if a strip updates once per day, Monday through Friday, then at the end of five years there will be over 1300 strips [[labelnote:Exact count]]1304 or 1305, depending on where the leap years fall[[/labelnote]] in its archive. The number increases to over 1800 strips [[labelnote:Exact count]]1826 or 1827, depending on leap years[[/labelnote]] if the strip updates on weekends as well. (This doesn't count for [[AndrewHussie Andrew]] [[Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures Hussie]], who can post several dozen updates in a day and then pause for ''a year'' to work on the ending.)
