Netflix: A Love Hate Relationship

I am a true binge watcher.  I hate watching TV shows one episode at a time.  This is why I like Netflix so much.  Being able to watch a full season of a show in one go is perfect for me.  I love the Netflix original series’s that are fully released on one day so that you don’t have to wait a week for the next episode.  I also like that it suggests shows for me to watch instead of having to find things I might like to watch on my own.

Recently, though, I have realised that it’s not all good.  As much as I love not having to wait a week to watch another episode, it also means that I have to wait a full year for the next season.  When a TV season runs for 10-20 episodes I then only have to wait around 9 months to get to watch it again.  I am also dissapointed with some of the new Netflix seasons that they are releasing one episode a week.  It goes against one of the main draws of Netflix.

In the end there are things that I love and things that I hate about Netflix.
