Your after work and weekend schedule is about to greatly open up as Netflix switches away from the binge-watching model for some of their series.

For the upcoming season of The Great British Baking Show, the streaming site will drop episodes weekly rather than all at once as they had done in the past.

Do you prefer weekly episodes or binge-watching? What’s the benefit of waiting each week?
