What's your preference? I have to admit with my attention span getting shorter by the year that I have less patience for serialized. There are so many recent shows where if I miss one or two episodes, that show is dead to me. I watched all of Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow until the 2019 season. Then I missed the premieres and to this day I still haven't watched any of last season's episodes. It's just too hard to pick an episode and watch without knowing the previous ones. You have to be willing to binge-watch all of them. Worse yet with the Arrowverse are the yearly crossovers. You basically have to watch all the episodes of all the shows in the season leading up to the crossovers to keep from being confused in that complex and convoluted universe. Wait, isn't that character dead? Oh, he's been resurrected. And killed again. And resurrected, for the third time. Likewise, Agents of SHIELD lost me when I missed the first couple of episodes of season 4. I miss the days when one could watch any episode of TOS or even TNG without having to know continuity from the last few episodes. DS9 and Voyager may have had story arcs, but one could still basically jump in at any point.
