What I'm watching: Sean Drummond, producer of 'Five Fingers for Marseilles'

Five Fingers for Marseilles, a Western set in the Eastern Cape, recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and will release in South Africa next year. 
We caught up with the producer, Sean Drummond, and chatted to him about his TV-watching habits:
The first show I can remember watching was Inspector Gadget when I was a kid. My grandparents would take me to the video store to get anthologies on VHS and I'd watch them all in an afternoon.
The first series I religiously watched on TV was Homicide: Life on the Street. It hooked me from the first frame.
The first series I binged in today's sense was probably Lost, on DVD.
For Homicide and Lost, it was the rich worlds and complex characters and also unique storytelling approaches. The specific episodes that got me hooked in each.
I tend to watch when I have time. Something that releases episodically like Game of Thrones I'll stay up-to-date on. But I don't love the show.
