NETFLIX don't get me wrong, our love affair is legit. It's just really not awesome when I have to break after 60 minutes of viewing, when I expected 120mins at least. If that were the case I should put in a DVD. What the heck is that?! Then I noticed this occurring not only on the kid shows, but the 2 times I personally got to watch something I wanted to watch. Well Netflix, you need to learn that everyone is totally on board with you BECAUSE we can sit mindlessly and veg out for hours and be controlled by these stories that we love for an unestablished time period. The idea that we have to click yes defeats the purpose and totally eliminates binge watching as a possibility. So now when I turn on Netflix for my kids, I set my timer for 60 minutes and try to get as much done in an hour. Sadly once I have to click yes, my kids are no longer interested in being brainwashed for babysitting. I have to move on to the next activity. Have I become more productive? Maybe, but probably not.
What am I saying to you Netflix:
- I'm confused as to why I can no longer subject my children's minds with the idea/practice of binge watching. It's cute that you are avoiding a potential lawsuit because some moron who signed up for your service will now sue you because of what "binge watching" has done to his life. (I'm on to you guys) I'm not that guy though.
- Thank you by the way, for watching my kids for me. I'm serious. I really appreciate you keeping them occupied in my most crucial moments. Please know that I am totally grateful for this service. And hey, I may become more productive with the newly implemented timer.
- You're still the most awesome subscription I've ever had for under $20.
