Binge Watching, The New Addiction
Remember when your mom said that too much tv will rot your brain? Well in a few years we will all be dumb as stumps with everyone binge watching their favorite television shows.
With the early binge addictions like Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead, it has become full blown with the subscription services of Netflix and Amazon.
It has almost become a right of passage to not watch a series when it airs but rather to wait until it hits the likes of Netflix or Amazon.
There are programs that are designed just for that purpose, for example Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones just to name a few, when these shows hit Netflix the entire series is ready to watch from start to finish.
I have no issue with binge watching I just wish I had the self control to walk away!
In case you're wondering my new binge watch addiction is Showtimes "Shameless"
So I say binge away, just remember, you're brain my rot, so says your mom, consider yourself warned.
