Re: When to re-watch a series?

Hmm, so it seems that the majority of people re-watches whenever the urge arises. Although convenient I am more of a control-freak and can't just go with the flow. To add upon that Hugo comes and practically inspires me to follow his lead

I really like the thought of a simulated freshness and 5 years is not too bad. Especially since I have only got 1½ year to SG-1, the first time I actually seriously followed a series. Never missed an episode. After that it shouldnt be too much waiting for the rest, SG-1 is like what... 10 seasons after all?

Re: When to re-watch a series?

I'll rewatch random episodes of a comedy series in TV reruns, but for drama shows, especially SFF shows, I only rewatch them from start to finish to get the full experience again. I don't have a formalized time period, but I generally let a number of years go by - sometimes many years - before I rewatch a show. The longer you leave it the more you can approach the show with a fresh eye.
