binge-watch

(redirected from binge watched)

binge-watch

To watch multiple episodes of a TV show in one sitting, as on a streaming service. The term alludes to the addictive nature of some shows, especially those that entice the viewer to find out what happens next. I can't believe I spent all day binge-watching that show—it's so addictive! A lot of my friends like to binge-watch their shows, but I like to space them out.
