I binge-watched (sort of) both The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey. AMC was running a TWD marathon over my Christmas break in 2013 and I decided to turn on the first episode. I was pretty much hooked from that moment on. For Downton, I was recommended to watch the series so I patiently waited for PBS to re-air the first season. I pvr'd it, watched it, loved it...and then did the same with the subsequent seasons which PBS so kindly chose to run in order to lead up to the season five premiere.
