Breakfast Babble is ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up (or not) for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.
Binging has officially ruined my life.
After hundreds of hours being buried in my phone/ laptop/ TV and diving deep into the library that popular streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime have to offer, I have run out of things to binge on.
It’s not like Netflix and Prime have run out of content to show me. The amount of notifications and emails I receive with the title “NEW CONTENT” is not even funny. It’s just that I don’t like the content that they serve me anymore.
I have devoured all the uber-popular shows that they have to offer like Narcos, Breaking Bad, and Suits. Even the new ones that have become all the rage like the Fyre Festival documentary and The Ted Bundy Tapes have not escaped me. But it just isn’t as fun as it used to be.
I remember the time when the moment I finished a show or a movie or a documentary, the next one used to hook me right back in. I remember jumping from People vs OJ Simpson to Manhunt: Unabomber to Mindhunter all in one fell swoop.
Even on Amazon Prime, The Office led to Parks and Recreation which led to Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I never had to go out and search for shows that I liked. One click or two got me the entertainment that I wanted.
But that is no longer the case. Now I have to search on something that is worthy for me to waste my time on. Some series I reject outright, others after an episode. The worst are those that betray me after an entire season.
Have these services actually run out of services or am I just too ignorant? Maybe my taste has evolved so as to not entertain shows above a certain level of finesse. Or maybe I am too picky for my own good.
Whatever the case may be, let me know in the comments down below if you feel the same. If you do not, recommend shows you think I haven’t watched and I should.
