How long do you have to spend binge watching this May? Half a day? Try Sherlock. 24 hours? Go with Arrested Development. A full six days and two hours? Go with 24. On second thought, don’t. Watch Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Freaks and Geeks instead. You’ll be much better off for it (and besides, even if you started now and didn’t sleep, you wouldn’t finish the entire series of 24 before it returns on Monday).

And if the show your considering watching next isn’t on the chart, this handy website will allow you to type in a series title and tell you exactly what the runtime is. (The Simpsons, by the way, is 9 days and 14 hours).
