The problem with Netflix is ... no wait, let's start that again. I have a problem with Netflix.
I would consider myself a very productive and self-motivated person, however Netflix is my Achilles heel, it's the one thing that can stop all that!
I am a lover of Netflix as many of you probably are. I like being able to watch shows when I want and however many I want. I like having the choice because despite having a million channels on the TV there is never anything worth watching on it.
But I also love the fact there are no adverts. Let's face it I think we can all agree on that one! Although, when you have taped a program on the TV and you are fast-forwarding there is always at least one advert that looks so interesting that you have to watch it anyway, which just kind of defeats the point in fast-forwarding, or is that just me?
But I am getting away from the point in hand, I HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN IT COMES TO NETFLIX!
If I dare start a series on Netflix, that's it, all productivity goes out the window and there is absolutely no hope whatsoever of getting anything done for the next few days or even weeks.
I am one of those people that suffer from, that thing we like to call 'just one more'. Yes I am that person who will set out to watch just one episode and five hours later at 2 in the morning I will still be there watching and hanging off every word a character says.
I have been caught up in the drama of Gossip Girl, the humour of The US Office, the danger of Dexter and the cliff hangers of Pretty Little Liars, to a point where I have been able to watch a season featuring 25 episodes in two and half days! (Yes, I am still not quite sure whether to consider this a triumph or a shameful secret, but it's out there now. So you know...)
And when that is mixed with the fact that the show has five seasons that you need to catch up on featuring a similar number of episodes in each season, I see this as more of a challenge than anything else.
The worst part of it all is yet to come, whenever you finish a series of any of your favourite shows, you suffer that emptiness of 'what the hell am I going to do now with my Thursday nights'. However when your life has become about the TV show, that emptiness is like a gaping hole that can't be filled for some time as you mope about the house, looking for something, anything to do.
But I know I can't be the only person with this problem, so its time for honesty hour. Comment below. I want to know if you have the same problem as me. What show has left you with that emptiness feeling, as well as, what series you have been caught up in and how fast have you watched a season of your favourite show?
