On Binge Watching

I feel that Netflix has made the world worse by releasing entire seasons of shows in giant dollops instead of doling them out week by week, or even month by month. We can’t control ourselves, and they know this - and darn it if they want allllll of our attention - and darn it if their tech and distribution strategy doesn’t lock us down to the couch and force feed us - instead of delight and tease us.
