It’s been years – yes, years – since I’ve watched a new tv show.
But I finally decided to try This Is Us. And I was hooked.
I love it so much. And although I never got into Gilmore Girls, I am now totally smitten by Milo Ventimiglia (he played Jess on GG – he plays Jack on TIU).
The thing is, I’m behind. So I’m trying to catch up before anything gets spoiled.
My routine for the past week has been to watch 2 episodes a day. But yesterday, after my two episodes, it was a total cliffhanger, so I had to watch one more. And that one more episode did me in. It’s like eating that one extra bite – when you’re really full, but it looks so good, and then you feel gross after and regret it.
It was too much. I felt like I’d missed the whole afternoon (which I kind of had). But in a weird way, I was glad. Glad that my body isn’t cool with just sitting there watching tv for hours on end. (Note – this isn’t to pass judgement on people who do regularly binge watch. It’s just not what I’m used to, and don’t plan on getting used to.)
What would your binge show be?
