What is The Binge Project?
The Binge Project is a community platform for entertainment binge watching. Its an aggregate of user
content ratings, tips and reviews that suggests future programming based on past viewing patterns
Use it as a diary to record and share your opinion about shows as you watch them, or just to keep track of
shows you’ve seen in the past. Showcase your favorites on your profile page. Rate, review and tag shows
as you add them. Find and follow your friends to see what they’re enjoying once you connect via social in
your profile. Keep a binge list of shows you’d like to see so you never run out of shows to binge. We’ve
been described as “like GoodReads for shows”.

No. The Binge Project will always remain free to use. We will also be bringing in strategic advertisers in

How should I use this site?
However you like! We want it to be your go to for you and your friends to share what shows you love, you
like, and you hate. We even give you a lucky purple start to really showcase those shows that you just
can’t stop binging! The easiest interaction is to mark shows you’ve
seen using the ‘star’ icon on each show page. You can rate shows and leave comments for other bingers
so they can understand what you did and did not like about each show.
Use the ‘Add a Show button to review a show, or to record the date you watched it—do this as you watch
shows (to populate your binge library) or to share your opinion of a show you’ve seen in the past.
Can I log a show and review it later?
Yes. You can edit a show entry and/or add a review at any point after logging a show. Simply go to your
profile page and locate your binged library to edit.
