Me (aka "forty-something gal with long brown hair"): "Hello. My name is Ericka."
Group (in unison): "Hello, Ericka."
Me: "I am a binge watcher."
Yes, people, I confess. I am a binge watcher.
Over the past 2 years, with the help of Netflix, On Demand, and Amazon Prime, I've binged on Sons of Anarchy, the first season of True Detective, the first season of The Affair, and Breaking Bad.
My most recent binge has been with the Showtime series, Shameless, which showcases the fictional and highly dysfunctional Gallagher family who hails from Chicago's south side. If you've never watched it, beware! It truly is like a train wreck (you don't want to see it, but it's so hard to look away...).
I polished off the first 5 seasons (60 episodes) in 10 days and got myself caught up so I could pick up with new season that premiered Sunday night.
Sixty episodes. S-I-X-T-Y. Each episode is between 45-60 minutes, so that equals 45 to 60 mind numbing hours of TV viewing.
So, I'm now all caught up and have to wait, yes - wait until Sunday for the next episode.
Well, it's probably for the best, otherwise this could be me in the not so distant future.
Any fellow binge watchers out there? What shows have you binged on? Thanks for stopping by!
