 I'm not telling anyone how they should watch their series, I'm just telling how I watch series.

 

Same here, but others in this thread feel the need to chastise us and force us to watch tv how they want us to watch.

Then Nielsen should do a better job.


Counting any viewing not live is a compromise to Nielsen's statistics. They are providing ratings based on what the program producers and channels want. That is the job they are paid to do ... and they are doing it to the satisfaction of the companies paying for the ratings.

 

Incorrect. They have no idea when or if I watch a recording. My act of recording is as good as watching.


Technically: If you are not a Nielsen family what you do is irrelevant. The Nielsen families that are part of the actual ratings are counted for what they watch, regardless of your gross misunderstanding of the ratings process. The question Nielsen ratings answer is what was watched.

You are free to watch or not watch however you want. It is a shame you have such a persecution complex. No one is forcing you to watch shows within seven days of air.

Without them knowing when or if I watch it I don't see how that's possible.


Well a coupes ways. One if you are a Nielsen family then I believe you denote if what you are watching was recorded and when you recorded it not what you recorded.

And more importantly that data directv collects is not just what we recorded but if an when we watched it to. I'm sure TiVo and another DVRs do the same.

There is a reason Nielsen specifically lists out what ratings are for shows now in terms of live, same day, 3 days and 7 days. They seemingly completely ignore anything longer than that in terms of when it was recorded. But more importantly the ratings have always said it was viewed via DVR so many days after it was recorded. I've never seen anyone show numbers simply stating what was recorded.

Even if they weren't, how many of us have the capability to store whole series? Very few, I'd think. I'd rather watch a series that is complicated all at once, that seems simple. I'm not telling anyone how they should watch their series, I'm just telling how I watch series. And I don't watch them all at once, I've already said that. Right now, I'm watching Black Sails, which I'd rather watch all at once than weekly. Why does what a very few of us do rankle people so much? I've been doing the same thing for a long time, as I've said and suddenly there's a word, Binge, for the way I've been watching shows for years. I like that word and intend to keep on binging.

There's several shows I'm just waiting to watch. Black sails I will get to. I also haven't watched game of thrones yet either. When I do it will be a binge viewing. It's the best way to follow shows that are built and written more like the good old mini series used I be rather than procedural drama IMHO for me. It's just more enjoyable for me to not have to remember who do what a year ago.

Just finished Black Sails last night.  Very good, very confusing, some battle scenes are very chaotic, perhaps the most chaotic naval battle scenes I've ever seen (hope nobody considers that comment a spoiler, I'd consider it a good thing to know).  I'll have to watch it again in another couple months to better understand what happened.

 

I wouldn't even consider watching Game of Thrones by any other method than binging on it.

Aside from Raising Hope and Suburgatory, I don't see any great loss. I kinda liked Rake, but didn't have much hope for it lasting.

Have you watched he Australian version of Rake? I think the all 3 seasons are available to download from the Audience Network.

I really like it. When you see how they portray the character you'll understand that there was no way a network show wouldn't
soften him up.
