【Binge Watching】

Theme:Michelle, 生活

As most of you have read, I have a new TV and it’s big. It’s also trouble. That’s right, trouble. A couple of weeks ago, I signed up for a DVD / online streaming service that is really popular here in the U.S. and some other countries as well.
There was one show in particular that I really wanted to catch up on, so I decided to get a membership. I only plan on keeping it a month or so. I made my list of DVDs that I wanted. When they arrive, I watch them when I have time and then mail them back.
It’s been great because I’m finally able to see the episodes I haven’t seen yet and catch up on what’s happening. There is just one problem, though. Last Friday, they released the 3rd season of, House of Cards. This can only be seen online using their service, so I started binge-watching it.
I watched 3 or 4 episodes a day, which is ridiculous. Thankfully, I am not the only one. A lot of my friends posted status updates on their social networking sites that they’d wouldn’t be in touch during the weekend because they too would be binge-watching this amazing show.
The one really nice thing about this systems is that we don’t have to wait all year or even half-a-year to watch all of the episodes for one season. They released all 13 episodes on the same day. I love it! So do all of my friends. There is one down side, though. We’ve all watched all the episodes already, so now we have to wait until February 2016 for the next season. That’s ok, though. I have other things to do than sit in front of the TV all day.
For those of you interested you can check out the Season 1 Trailer here: House of Cards – Season 1
Thanks for reading!
