We recently finished 4 seasons of Last Man Standing. Before that it was Nashville (3 seasons) and 8 seasons Heartland only took us a couple months.
By definition, binge watching is “the practice of watching multiple episodes of a television program in rapid succession, typically by means of DVDs or digital streaming”. Exactly! Oh Netflix… It’s SO easy to get addicted, I mean hooked, I mean obsessed, I mean captivated. Well, you get the idea.
Of course, having the next episode start in just 15 seconds after the last one ends is brilliant on their part. We do this during the summer TV break, winter break and during big USA events like the run for the White House, State of the Union, the Superbowl, Leafs games, etc.
You know you’re binge watching when after 3-4 episodes the program stops to ask you if you’re still watching. Dah! Shouting of course at the TV doesn’t help. Just use the remote!
We kind of pay attention while multi-tasking on texts, WhatsApp, phone games, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc…
What is your binge watching addiction?
