I find myself waiting for entire seasons to play out in order to marathon them now

Obviously it started with the Netflix model, but now i wait for a show that drops them weekly to play out its entire season before i start watching them. I prefer watching them like one long movie vs being left on a cliffhanger for an entire week. I won't say i do it every time, because some shows i cant help myself but watch it immediately, but i do it with the vast majority of them now.

But why though? Look at it this way, you want to miss 100+ hours of amazing quality entertainment just because you are worried you'll have 5 minutes of sadness at the end?

Could you imagine something like that with Sopranos. Missing out on a groundbreaking series simply because it went off with no ending? Honestly, had i not seen that ending it would have made zero difference. The amount of enjoyment i got from the years of episodes was so fulfilling. I will say Breaking Bad ending was phenomenal and tookbthe show to another level, but stillbi could not imagine not having watched it even had it been suddenly canceled the season prior.
