How to Correctly Binge Watch a TV Show

It seems that most people have a TV show that they just can’t get enough of. They’ve seen every episode, probably more than once, and still want more. For those of you who don’t think a TV show can mean that much to you, I think you’re wrong.

For my entire life, I’ve always claimed that I don’t watch TV often. I don’t like the idea of just sitting on the couch and watching TV. The commercials annoy me, if there is any kind of distraction I can’t refocus and most shows seem silly to me. But then I learned to appreciate TV for the greatness it really is. Call it college, call it procrastination or call it whatever you want, but it’s definitely not as bad as I once thought.

It doesn’t matter which show you watch. It may be a show about something you didn’t even know you were interested in. Crime, politics, drama, love, life or anything. More than likely you’ll be able to relate to at least one of the characters, or at least will be fascinated by how different they are from you. Take a chance and start a show that’s a little bit different than what you think you would enjoy.

My advice to those of you who are like the old me is to actively involve yourself in the show. Watch it with friends (and by that, I mean talk to other people about the show and what’s happening in it) to help keep you interested once the episode is over. If you can talk about the characters, what they’re doing, what you think will happen next and everything else regarding the show, you will find yourself more interested in it.

If you’re lucky enough to decide on a show that’s available online anytime, you can seriously binge watch it. I’m talking multiple episodes in a row. Hour long episodes? No problem, set aside three hours and go. Plus, this way you’ll finish the show sooner and be able to move onto the next hot show!

Now go out there, find a TV show to watch and do it. Seriously though, you’ve been warned about the addiction you may acquire.
