I wrote a column last week for the newspaper about this very subject and then a follow-up blog post with more thoughts on how our TV habits are changing, so you might say I’ve been giving it a lot of thought.

My wife and I were big AD fans when it aired, but when we knew the end was coming, we parceled out the last episodes over a long period of time, savoring them. Then again, watching that show with long gaps in between can be a little tough to do as well. By the end of Season Three, we had trouble remembering how all the convoluted plotting fit together.

With Season Four, we’re five episodes in and in no rush to blaze through them all.
