The 7 Stages of Binge Watching a TV Show

This one hurt a little because there was just TOO MUCH TRUTH to it.

This video was almost too real. I’ve binge watched game of thrones, westwood, walking dead, how i met your mother – you know real thrillers. The snacking is too real and i have posted on a few message boards. Don’t tell anybody.

Here’s how it starts:

Everyone has told you about this show – they’re downright shocked when you tell them you haven’t seen it.  They’re right, you’ve probably been wasting your time volunteering at the animal shelter instead of watching tv at home alone.  

Stage 1: Confusion

Ok, this looks nice and fun.  Nature and Horses and oh that actor is cool, he definitely won’t die in a horrible bloody brutal and disturbing fashion.  This is the stage when you’re just getting to know the show.  You are both feeling each other out and seeing if it’s gonna be a good fit… but come on, with a name like Stranger 13 Walking Game of Westwood Thrones… how can you go wrong?

Stage 2: Auto play

You finished your first episode and it was … mehhhh.  But before you can get off the couch, escape the clutches of a binge and be a functioning member of society… the next episode auto-starts.  Now you have to watch another one.  You have no choice.

Stage 3:  You’re HOOKED

Ho hum, the show is whatever.  You’re playing on your phone, you’re figuring out your next snack when suddenly THAT DUDE POURED MOLTEN GOLD ALL OVER THAT OTHER GUY’S FACE .. yea you’re hooked.

Stage 4:  Cruise control

Your snack game would make Homer Simpson jealous.  You haven’t moved in days.  The couch has a permanent imprint of your butt.  You couldn’t be happier.  Your friends are texting you about going out tonight and you’re making up likes about how much “work” you have to finish and how you have a “ton to catch up on.”   Oh and you also appreciate the sunrise.

Stage 5: Obsession

You’re calling out of work because your favorite character just got the rug pulled out.  You are figuring out the secret illuminati code and you’re actively posting all over the message boards.  You want to defend your favorite characters from both the bad guys on the show and the writers who think they can do whatever they want.  If an episode ever buffers, your panic attack is only interrupted by your stroke.  Nothing can stop your fall except…



Stage 7:  It’s over

… whaat..  It’s Over?  You crushed 26 episodes in 24 hours? This is depressing.  This is absurd.  YOu haven’t showered in days.  Your parents called the cops a while ago looking for you.  Maybe it’s time to get off the couch.  Maybe it’s time to face reality an d get your life back together.  

Maybe it’s time to watch the whole series again.
