You can consider binge-watching an art.
If you spent the long Chinese New Year weekend staying at home and being a couch potato, congratulations. I hope you enjoyed doing so as thoroughly as I did.
I spent most of the time binge-watching Mr Robot, which I have been meaning to watch for a while now but just didn’t have the time. Completing the first season of that has resulted in me wanting to binge-watch yet another television show. Binge-watching is such a horrible addiction.
Here are the seven stages of binge-watching that I (and all other binge watchers) constantly experience:
I also heard a lot of people talking about the awards that the show had won, and people commenting on Facebook and Twitter about how handsome Rami Malek is.
Other binge-watchers might agree with me that the binge-watching rush is a rush you’ve never felt before. It makes you forgo sleep, food, water and sometimes even the toilet breaks that you so urgently need.
I think being disappointed is inevitable because it is impossible for every episode to be great.
I cannot believe they killed off that character. I cannot believe that happened. Like, wow, Mr Robot is a really intense and mind-blowing show. I can’t believe that’s the end of the season. Like, how could you end with such a cliffhanger??? Just shut up and just take my money if it means I can find out what is going to happen NOW.
I ended up watching the entire season in two days, and I now have to wait six whole months for the next season.
At this stage, I’m already sick and tired of waiting. Six months is a long time and I just cannot go on without having a television show to binge-watch. Like I said before, binge-watching is an addiction and it can make you go out of control.
You’d find yourself looking through websites to find lists of “best shows to binge-watch”. My advice is to find a television show that has already ended, or one that has been running for a really long time.
But, only do that if you have a lot of time to spare, and I mean a lot.
