I have an unhealthy relationship with Netflix.
Hang on. Let me start at the beginning.
So like 5 years ago, we nixed cable/satellite as a source of entertainment, primarily due to cost, but also to stave off the bad habits we as a family were developing.
You know. Glued to the set for far too long throughout the day.
Skip to the end – We started using the streaming, digital version of Netflix probably about 2 years ago.
Man, those 3 movies and 2 tv shows were awesome.
I digress. I do that a lot.
Today, the majority of our recreational viewing is via Netflix. Which is ok, because it’s still waaaayyy cheaper than the alternative.
Here’s the problem.
I know, right??
What is my problem?
Here it is: Commercials would compel me to either a) switch channels, or b) get up and do something else, out of hatred for commercials.
Now we burn through tv shows, documentaries, movies of all kinds (that we’d never known existed) like some sort of tweaked out speed freaks.
It’s a bad habit.
And the worst thing of all?
You can never find the things you ACTUALLY want to watch, so you settle for something less than ideal.
Oh. My. God.
I’m paying for a video rental store.
I feel so dirty…….
