We gave up on cable TV completely a few years ago. I didn't have it growing up because they couldn't offer it to us because of where we lived. By the time I went to college, my parents finally got the service, but I was dorm living with my own E! channel, so I was golden. Don't get me wrong, I love sitcoms, dramas, and even the most asinine reality shows... but cable just wasn't worth it for me.
I've been obsessed with Netflix for going on seven or so years, before I owned any streaming device...
Now, I just stream! We don't miss cable one bit, and we also have Hulu Plus & Amazon Prime. I can watch any show, at any time with no commercials! That is the way life should be. Let's face it, the world is going that way. I consider myself a bit of a Netflix aficionado. You name it, chances are that I have seen it. Better yet, I have probably binge watched it.
Am I a better person for it? Besides my increased knowledge of vampires (Vampires Diaries,) how to be a doctor (Scrubs, Hart of Dixie,) my rights & the law (all three series of Law & Order) or how to make meth (Breaking Bad, ps JK Mom) I'm probably not. Then there are the lessons that Dexter taught us, which reminds me that television shows are not how-to videos.
Don't try any of the above at home, little chickens.
My point in all of this (if you're one of the two people probably still reading) is that I am in a serious Netflix rut. I've revisited favorites, I've watched those movies that I have been putting off (Fargo was insanely awesome) but I need some input! Hit me with your best
shot show or movie and help me with another unnecessary obsession! What are friends for?
Or else I will be forced to read one of the seven half read books on my kindle.
I was not asked to write this for any reason, these are just my thoughts.
Netflix should probably pay me not to write about them.
Disclaimer: obviously I have a life, this post might just not get that point across.
I'm going to go play outside now.
