* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is best consumed in marathons, rather than single episodes aired once per week. Watched from the beginning, the well-written character growth and dynamics becomes a lot more rewarding, the same applies with the ability to spot its many background details and tight continuity. It's also the only way to follow its deep MythArc. Watching episodes on Cartoon Network, you'd never guess any of this (although Cartoon Network does occasionally run marathons of Steven Universe in some countries--the same ones where it plays twelve times a day).

* There are several advantages to watching ''BrokenSaints'' on DVD rather than online. 1) It's easier to pause, rewind, and fast-forward (although the inability to pause in the middle of a chapter was part of the creator's design for the series) and 2) [[DVDBonusContent A voice-over track!]]

* The same logic of binge-watching TV series also applies to film series. It's a lot more fun to watch installments in franchises such as Franchise/JamesBond movies, ''Film/LordOfTheRings'', ''Franchise/StarWars'' or ''Film/HarryPotter'' without having to wait up to several years between releases in theaters.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' was torn to shreds when first released to theaters but the extended version of the film, labeled the "Ultimate Edition", was better received than its theatrical cut, due to a clearer explaining of certain plot points and smoother pacing. Some viewers even said it was like watching a different movie.

** The revival series benefits from this trope as well. Every season has an individual StoryArc, which often add up to an overreaching arc for the current Doctor that's resolved in his sendoff story: Ten coming to terms with being the Last of the Time Lords, Eleven dealing with a force misguidedly trying to destroy him to protect all space and time. Series 1-4 rely mostly on ArcWords. From Series 5 onward, while many stories work just fine as standalone adventures, closer attention is needed to keep track of arc and CharacterDevelopment -- particularly in Series 6 (due to an unusually complex arc) and Series 9 (which is mostly two or three-part stories). In addition, many of the biggest plot developments such as the Doctor's regenerations often don't happen within actual seasons but in the {{Christmas Episode}}s and extra-length specials aired between/during them.

* Any series that with a HalfArcSeason format will often be better if binge-watched due to the slowly-developed arc being much easier to follow.
