In an age of Netflix and on demand, does anyone actually wait to watch shows once a week for however long a series lasts anymore? Technology has spoiled us, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t as guilty as the next person for ending up 3 series deep in a programme without remembering exactly how I got there.
I do, however, have a bit of a commitment problem with some programmes; I get so far and then suddenly I can’t bring myself to go any further. This can be in the middle of a series, or while waiting for a new series to begin, it just happens randomly and suddenly – even the series that the rest of the world watch obsessively, I just lose all interest.
Game of Thrones
I didn’t have any interest in Game of Thrones when it first hit the scene, but my ex insisted I watch it and although I was confused the whole time, I smashed through the first 3 series so we could watch the 4th series when it came out. I was pretty addicted at the time, but post-breakup I didn’t have access to Sky and I couldn’t be bothered to try and remember all the characters names anymore.
Pretty Little Liars
I was late to the PLL party and left early too. I made it as far as the first few episodes of season 5 before I had to stop watching it for reasons best explained in this post. Last week I have gone back in an attempt to make it to the end, given that it all over now.
Twice I’ve got into Teen Wolf and then dropped the ball and given up. This one I can’t really explain, it just loses its appeal every now and then.
Once Upon A Time
For a series that I fell in love with so quickly, I just can’t bring myself to go any further than the point I’m at now. Maybe because I’m worried about it getting even more convoluted than it is, maybe its because I don’t want it to be over..
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
I watched the whole of season 1 in a day, but the newest series has just held zero appeal to me..
Aside from a few, I genuinely can commit to a good series, so if you have any recommendations then drop me a comment!
