BINGE-R #69: On Hiatus

BINGE-R #69: On Hiatus

A note from your fellow binger: BINGE-R is taking a break. The last nine months of watching and writing about every worthwhile series new to streaming – or at least trying to –has resulted in a demanding workload on top of my regular prints gigs as a critic. Now I have some other projects to test out, and I’ll also be covering, on a less exacting schedule, streaming shows for The Monthly’s website. Thank you to each and every subscriber who has signed up along the way – I enjoyed the experience of writing and designing this e-mail for you twice a week. The mailing list is safely secure (please do stay subscribed), while all of BINGE-R remains available at the website. Given that the newspaper industry is in the midst of combustible change I could return to your in-box with fresh recommendations very soon. Until then, I encourage you to squeeze in just one more episode. Thanks again, CM.
