I’m sure we’ve all done it, say you’re going to watch one episode of a series and before you know it – you’ve watched five of the damn addictive things.
It doesn’t happen with every TV series I watch and it’s been a while since my last TV binging session, but some seem to grab me at vulnerable moments and don’t let me go until there’s none left. Today appears to be one of those vulnerable days (read as: lazy feeling days).
I had a whole list of stuff planned of both chores and fun stuff – but what did I do? I made the mistake of beginning series 3 of The Walking Dead whilst I ate my lunch. Five episodes later I realised I had better stop and get on with some of my list.
Damn you NOW TV and our free trial that started yesterday! If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have been able to start watching it in the first place. I can foresee that my evenings and weekends will be taken up with the rest of series 3, then 4, then 5 – which should be being taken up by my course assignment! Although I’ll probably just binge watch it all so it should only take me a few days; I can get back to my normal routine after that I suppose. I don’t have the will power to do what I’m meant to be doing, when I’m in the grips of a series that I can watch one after the other without thinking about it.
How far have I got with my list of jobs today? Not far as all I want to do is watch more Walking Dead, but I have managed to do a few things at least. …Maybe I’ll just watch one more episode…
Tell me, what TV series’ do you find yourself glued to the sofa with?
