HAPPY FREAKING FRIDAY
Does anyone else feel like this was the longest week, ever? No? Just me.. okay cool.
For some reason this old jam has been playing on repeat in my brain this week... so I'm going to #backthatazzup with Whitney today with some Heartless action.
Binge watching tv shows - we all do it. Well, I'm pretty sure we all do it... if you've never binge watched a tv show EVER in your life, we probably wouldn't be the two best friends that anyone could have. Sorry.
I just finished binge watching my latest series that I was obsessed with - Arrested Development. I can thank a gentleman (who I only went on a couple of dates with) for this one, because we ended up curled up on the couch watching the first two episodes of this and I was instantly hooked... luckily something good came from that kid. Okay, sorry again, that was kind of mean.. but the truth hurts. Anyway..
I've done this so many times over the years. Friends will suggest a show, or I'll read about a show online and just HAVE to see what all the fuss is about, and usually (especially if it's on Netflix) I will board myself up in my room or on the couch and binge watch that show until I've watched the entire series... or until I'm caught up to date and watching it live on tv each week (THIS IS THE WORST).
I've discovered that I truly do NOT like watching tv shows while they're actually airing on tv. I don't like watching them every week, because HELLO I am way too busy for that. Also, I forget what time shows are on, what channel, what day of the week, etc. Also, because I don't have a PVR - it just does not work for me. Period.
I'd much rather wait until it's on Netflix, or I can buy the seasons on DVD and sit my butt down on the couch and get lost in 5-10 hours of binge watching. I know this is terribly lazy of me, but I don't do it often - so I feel like it can be justified. Also, shame on you if you just judged me for that. Whatever, you ALL have done it.
The worst part of binge watching a show is when it's over. Like, WHAT THE HECK DO I DO WITH MY LIFE NOW? This show has consumed any spare moment that I've had for the past *insert x amount of days or weeks here* and now I have nothing.
These are the kinds of thoughts that go through my head after my show has ended:
- I need to find a new show.
But it's too soon.
I must mourn the
Maybe I'll go back to being physically active and go running.
Maybe I should call the friends that I've been avoiding.
Maybe I should catch up on sleep.
Maybe I should catch up on blog posts, or e-mails.
Binge watching is an awfully wonderfully addicting thing. I'm trying hard not to start a new show, but it's really hard... Must. Stay. Away.
Okay, I'm done rambling about nonsense. Happy weekend.
But seriously... someone tell me that I'm not the only person with this problem... Please.
