There’s an emotional element (outside of the connection to the story) that’s missing when binge-watching a TV series instead of watching it week-to-week.

I still marathon a ton of shows, but I am hard-pressed to think of any viewing that evokes the same long-term emotional highs of the shows I come back for every week, and every year.
