#4 Join the Cult: Binge Watching vs. the Uplugged Premiere
House of Cards premiered last month, specifically, February 1st on Netflix. I didn't care. That isn't to say I had been looking forward to the show--in fact I have been looking for an excuse to watch the show for weeks now. But, I didn't really care about when it was coming out. I'd like to focus on the new trend of binge watching shows and why it is ultimately the way we as media consumers are all going to go.
To do this, I'd "binge-watch" House of Cards by watching at least three episodes a day to finish the 13 episode season. This would generally define what binge-watching and hopefully allow for a clear mind on what that experience is like for those unfamiliar---then I would be arguing as to why this is ultimately the most personal and customizable way to consume media while simultaneously being the most addictive.
