Help! Netflix Has Rendered Me Totally Useless!
About three weeks ago, my wife and daughter were having a girls day out. It was cold outside and to be honest, I didn’t really feel like doing anything.
So, I started to scroll through Netflix to see what there was to see. That’s when I stumbled on Walking Dead. I’ve seen a few of you post on Facebook that you like the show so I clicked play and killed about 40 minutes and watched Season 1, Episode 1. “Okay… Not a bad show. I think I’ll see what Episode 2 has to offer.”
That’s how it started. Now, I can’t put it down. I spend my days, my nights, my weekends, trying to get up to speed with the rest of the world.
If I’m up early, I might watch some in the morning while I get ready. I try to sneak in a few minutes at lunch or if I can’t sleep, I might wander into the living room at dark-thirty in the morning and sneak a little. I even watched part of Season 2, Episode 3 on my phone during a conference call and I’ve considered taking some vacation days just so I can have uninterrupted time with me and hoards of zombies.
There’s absolutely no doubt. I have a Netflix addiction and I don’t see and end in sight.
What’s the best way out of this? Is there a cure for Netflix addiction? I mean, seriously… It’s not like the show is going anywhere. I should be able to give it a rest. Yet I keep find myself saying I’m going to put it down after “just one more episode,” and like a junkie looking for his next fix, I hit “next.” and watch more.
I suppose I only have two choices – Cut it out cold turkey or lock myself away. Have you discovered a series on Netflix that you just can’t put down?
