Interested in playing this game, but have not seen the show.

Are there any spoilers in the game?

Do I have to binge-watch the show before I play?

My take on this is there are a few minor spoilers in the characterization of certain characters. There aren't any HUGE spoilers about the show in the game.

Watching the show, however, gives you a certain flavor for playing that I can't figure out many other ways to appreciate. Suddenly, the decisions a lot of the characters make in the show seem a little more reasonable. Some of the effects of the characters actions now make a little more sense.

The game does an excellent job of capturing the tension of the job these agents perform. And it captures the weird tug-of-war emotional pull of the show really well.
