Most hours straight you've watched a drama?

Post by whatever0024 » Feb 9th, '09, 19:49

The most I've watched is slightly over19 straight hours of What Happened in Bali because I believe each episode is a little over an hour long. I know there are 20 episodes, but the DVD that contained the other two episodes was misplaced and no matter how hard I tried looking for it, I just couldn't find it. So, I went online to find out what happened at the end. Of course, I was beyond disappointed because I invested so much time and then to find out that that happened?! Grr!

If I'm including bathroom breaks and making snacks, it'd probably be close to 20 hours. Who needs sleep when it's absolutely imperative to find out what happens next, right?

Oh my goodness... One day during the summer I woke up and watched an entire series in one day.. I think I was watching Hana Yori Dango. I was up for around 10 - 15 hours straight watching it and I couldn't stop.

I was so in love with MNIKSS and the Tdrama MARS that I watched the entire dramas non-stop. I was a mess the next day. I sat in front of my computer and watched every single episode. Then I was angry when they ended. I truly believe that if those dramas would have been 30 episodes long, I would have taken a 30 min nap and started all over again. Is there a self help group for that?

I watched Pride in one sitting. Usually I can only handle a couple of episodes a day of whatever drama I'm watching. If it's several I do an episode of each - about three.

I've never marathoned a series. I tend to watch one episode per day, two at most. I've always been like this.

I watched the entire Fated to Love You series in one sitting. Including food and potty breaks, it took about 27 hours. Fortunately it was a long weekend for me so I had nothing better to do! ^_^

I really can't say what my longest marathon is. I think it may be 17 episodes of I Really Really Like You. Weekends are for me only. If I am not volunteering and the weather is bad (this means rain or cook an egg on the sidewalk hot) Then I will gather my snacks and a huge water bottle slip into my pj's and I dont move. Sometimes I have a problem of not having a whole series to watch. I am trying to keep something ready for when a lazy weekend comes up. Right now I have Fated to Love You for my next weekend. Come on let it rain rain rain :)

More often than not I can't even get through a one hour episode without a break! Most drama tend to be very long-winded, especially Korean and Chinese ones (actually I can't even watch Chinese drama, it's way too corny!) Usually after half an hour or so, something pops into my mind I'd rather be doing, and I'll finish the episode later that day.

I wonder why I watch it at all; it must be an addiction... Guess I do belong on this site after all then? :P

oooohh maaaaan~ When I first started watching doramas, I went crazy. I could watch an entire series in one sitting without a problem. Not even a slight discomfort. Now-a-days though I really only watch an episode or two a day (and that's only if I have something to watch LoL).

For me the longest had to be Densha Otoko & Iljimae. From the 1st I watched 7 episodes in one go, then waited for my sister to catch up before we finished it together. And for Iljimae I watched 5-6 episodes in one day.
Because I tend to watch a lot of dramas at the same time, I don't marathon anything anymore lest it's very addicting (like Iljimae). Nowadays I just watch 3-4 eps a day from different dramas.

Sometimes when I get addicted to a drama, I'll marathon the whole thing and miss sleep.

Before, 5 - 10 hours. Now, I like to savor the moment. Unless, they are new episodes. That's a different story.

my longest marathon? I have a couple marathons.including breaks:

devil beside you: +/- 23-24 hours
hana yori dango 1: +/- 10 hours
hana yori dango 2: +/- 11 hours
why why love: +/- 20 hours
my lucky star: +/- 24-25 hours
shibatora: +/- 13 hours
smiling pasta: +/- 18 hours
bloody monday: +/- 11 hours
Pi Li MIT: +/- 19 hours
fated to love you: I took a while longer to finish that. I did take me a weekend since I had to get up ever day of the week at 5 so I was dead tired and couldn't finish it without a good nights rest.

all of my marathons that I watched are also all of my favorites. :w00t: next marathon coming up will be black and white once it's been completely subbed. :cheers: damn I really am a freak ain't I? :blink not that I care anymore. :P hehe. I admit it. I am an addict to taiwanese and japanese drama's. and damn proud of it. :P
