How to Binge Watch a Netflix Show
This post comes all in good timing, as I am currently in bed (at the time of writing this, which is currently 10:11PM on March 17th, just about 5 hours until release time!) awaiting the expected 3:00AM EST release of the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil. I’m staying up until the 3:00AM release time because I have actual social things that I have to do tomorrow that are interrupting my binge-watching time and I NEED TO GET IT DONE.
Shall we begin the actual post, then?
STEP ONE: Cancel all social interaction for the day
If you’re gonna binge watch, you’ve got to do it right with no interruptions. Its best to do this by cancelling all social interaction for the day. “Come hang out with me” you say? Sorry, I can’t, I have a date with a blind vigilante all day long.
STEP TWO: gather your snacks and water
Might as well get this together the day before you plan to binge, so that you don’t have to get up in the middle of your binge session to get the essentials like water and food.
STEP THREE: plan your breaks
I would say break every 3 episodes. By break I mean get up and use the bathroom and then sit right back down again and continue obsessing over Matt Murdock’s abs.
oh those delicious abs
STEP FOUR: settle yourself into your blankets with your laptop
Once you’ve figured out when you’ll allow yourself to use the bathroom, got your food and water surrounded, its finally time to wrap yourself up into your blankets and put your headphones in!
STEP FIVE: enjoy your binge session!
Now that you’ve settled yourself into a blanket cocoon with all your essentials around you, it’s time to hit play and enjoy your binge!
STEP SIX: cry because its over
This is an essential part of the binge watching experience also! Once you’re done, you’re struck with the fact that another season will not come online for at least another year and all you will have to live with is fanfic and tumblr edits. But don’t worry, the rest of the Internet is suffering with you, so you’re not alone!
Now stop reading this and GO WATCH DAREDEVIL SEASON 2 ON NETFLIX. (Just want to point out that ironically enough, I have this scheduled to upload at 3am. We’ll see if I make it to 3am with this post.)
