Keeping The Television In Check
A few months ago I decided to pick one show at a time and watch an entire season and nothing else, not unlike binge watching on Netflix. If I don't like the show enough I remove it from my hard drive and from my life. I don't get distracted by other stuff that's good because I know I'll get to it sooner or later anyway and there's no time wasted channel surfing or looking for something interesting to watch. Of course I'll miss out on all the water cooler talk about the latest episode of this or that but my tastes don't seem to be very mainstream anyway so there's no loss.
Here are some of the shows I've recently finished a season of and can recommend: Game of Thrones (HBO), Penny Dreadful (Showtime), Continuum (Netflix), Under The Dome (not amazing but better than I expected) and Hannibal (probably one of the best shows I've seen all year). Remember, control your TV or it will control you.
