Every single week a brand new show is released on some streaming platform (if not multiple new shows), but there’s something to be said about always returning back to your old favorites that have already ended. Sure, they might not be on the air anymore but when you need a quick television pick me up of an episode or two — or even a whole season — they’re the ones you’ve got in your queue for constant binging.
Also, there’s something great to be said about watching a show that’s already off the air: You don’t have to wait around for new episodes because they’re already all at your disposal!
