Let me start out by saying that several months ago, I had to cancel my Netflix subscription because it was that bad! I’ll give you a hint. It contains five words for a total of two different shows. Give up?
Here you go: Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy
I will also admit to binge watching Orange is the New Black but nothing was as bad as to when I was glued to my Ipad watching Breaking Bad. You know what I’m talking about. It’s that voice in your head nearing the end of an episode when you promise yourself that you are going to turn it off and get up to do something productive. Oh and you know it’s easier said than done.
It’s because those 15 seconds between episodes, you know where they show you the preview for the next one just reeled you right in and before you know it, you either just finished a whole season or half for that matter. Raise your hand if you are guilty of this! I know that I am not alone in this. Good gosh, it’s the best $8 a month ever spent isn’t it? Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating just a little bit but it is true!
The truth is that I don’t watch tv regularly anymore where as I used to watch specific shows on the nights that they air. I used to have DVR but I gave that up because if I missed an episode, then I just caught up on either Netflix or On Demand. There are several shows that I would like to start watching because I hear people talking about them all the time however I just do not have the time to binge watch anymore.
I decided to sign up again and pick a couple of shows and only watch a certain amount of episodes of each per week. This way, I will still get stuff done and enjoy some time to watch my shows. I know you’re all probably thinking “yeah right!” and on that note, I’ll post on my Facebook page and let you all know how that’s working for me!
Don’t forget to leave me a comment below and let me know which shows you are guilty of binge watching. What is the most number of episodes that you have watched in one sitting? Don’t list too many as I don’t need another one added to my list because then I’ll just blame you when I break my rule that I just made for myself. Just kidding!
