What makes an anthology series special from a normal television show? Is it the director's way of telling the story? Is it the breaking of monotony? By monotony, we mean the seemingly unending seasons with a lot of filler episodes (and scenes) that tend to make you lose interest in the middle. Or perhaps, is it the thrill of introducing new faces and characters per episode? Remember The Twilight Zone? Remember how this suspense-horror anthology series introduces standalone episodes, with new characters and plots that are almost totally unrelated? Or is it the ability of the showrunners to actually present its audience with unique episodes that are painstakingly woven together--its characters and plot--while keeping the show and director's vision of it? If you answered 'yes' to all these questions, then you are a certified binge-watcher who finds it interesting to watch new content each time you tune in.
