There are so many TV shows being made today, and it’s hard to know which are worth your time and which are not.

Binge or Trash aggregates a lot of data to give you one final judgment: binge, or trash.

Where do you get your data?

We source our data from generous public APIs such as The Movie DB, The Open Movie DB, and Trakt. A lot of our data also comes from our brother-website, agoodmovietowatch.com, which is a private source.

How do you calculate the Binge or Trash score?

We all have that one friend who cooks some dish really well. You’ve asked them for the recipe, and they gave it to you, vaguely, they said “aggregation of public and private data”, and yet you’ve never been able to replicate their amazing taste.

Now every time you want that dish, you have to go back to your friend. No other friend knows how to make that dish as well as them.

Is it OK to call a show trash?

Yes, and critics have called TV shows worse things.

The roots of our idea date back to 1975, when prominent critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel premiered a show called “Sneak Previews”. In it, they rated their picks with a “thumbs up/thumbs down” summary.

Since we don’t have the censorship of a 1975 public broadcasting company, we chose the terms “binge” and “trash”, but the binary nature of our rating is the same as Sneak Previews, and many other concepts and platforms.

The big difference is instead of relying on the opinions of just two critics, we use data from millions around the internet to form our score.
