Back in my high school and college days, I used to binge watch TV shows and anime series like a pro. I’d pick one series I’ve been dying to see, sit down, and watch almost the entire thing within a day or two. It really depends on the length of the show. Nowadays, I can barely sit down long enough to watch a show continuously for more than an hour. Watching a longer series is a huge time commitment for me and it’s really rare to simply spend an entire day of my free time just watching TV all day. What’s a busy girl with limited time on most days supposed to do? I discovered the only time I’m able to binge watch anything at all is when series or episodes are shorter in length.
TV was a big deal for me at my house when I was growing up. I watched every single show that caught my fancy from Full House to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Growing up as a kid during the ’90s, we arguably had the best shows to watch. As I got older and shows started getting less and less appealing for me to watch, I’ve gotten pickier about my viewing habits. I don’t watch a ton of TV anymore and I barely have time to watch the ones I do watch.
I used to be a major TV watcher as a kid. TV was my main source of entertainment, mainly because you had really good shows like Full House, Family Matters, Boy Meets World, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to name a few. It was easy to get caught up in the lives and antics of these families or characters for half an hour. Every time I tuned into these shows as a kid, it really felt like coming home or visiting an old friend each week.
These days my TV viewing habits have gone down drastically. There isn’t a lot of time to watch anything as much as I used to, or I’m much pickier about what I spend my time watching. Then there are shows I’ve been wanting to get into, but haven’t had time for a variety reasons. Recently, and thanks to the invention of Netflix Stream, I finally made time to watch Zooey Deschanel’s hit TV show New Girl. Words can’t even begin to describe how much I really love this show.
