When I started binge-watching TV, when that became a thing due to Netflix a few years ago, the first thing I watched was 'Lost.' It was summer break from grad school, and I watched it all in a row, like as many hours a day as I could, as though I were clocking in at a job.

People have asked me about the 19th century and how I knew so much about it.

And I used every scrap of knowledge that I had.
