My Spring Break in... Alabama? Spending a Week in the Deep South
Then suddenly you blink and it’s 3 AM and you’ve polished off three more seasons. In fact, those were the last three seasons of your latest life-consuming past time. It’s okay, we’re all in the same binge-boat when it comes to Netflix, so here are 7 tumultuous emotions to prepare for once you’ve finished your beloved show.
Binge-watching is like leaving the rest of the pizza out for someone else to put away: it feels great in the moment, but you’ll regret it once you realize there’s no more left in the morning because someone else ate it. Except that someone else is you. You ate all the pizza and now the empty box (read: title art) still sits on the counter (read: list) mocking you, while you’re left blind-sided and hungry for more.
Horror Film Verónica Review
In stage two, you’ll most likely take a page out of Leo’s book and straight up refuse to give in to the nightmare that has quickly become your reality. Just, try not to sacrifice your own longevity in an attempt to reunite with your beloved Netflix characters.
It’s okay friend, you aren’t the first person to let a prime show slip through your fingers and this certainly won’t be the last time it does so. Believe me, it’s not your fault.
This is the stage where you know it’s not your fault! I understand you feel like the world is out to get you; after all, you’ve had a rough few minutes. But there’s no need to take it out on your laptop. Force yourself to take a deep breath and maybe go stomp to the kitchen for a nice snack.
Now that you’ve gotten your flash of aggression out, it’s finally sunk in that this is it: your show is over. No amount of blooper reels, behind the scenes interviews, and re-runs will ever fill the void that has replaced the dizzy excitement of suspense and mystery.
It’s important that you take a moment (or a week) to look back on all the good times you and those characters have had. Re-watch the very first episode, or your favorite episode, or even that one episode where your favorite character did that thing to your least-favorite-yet-still-super-lovable character and everyone laughed and laughed about it… Yeah, that was funny. Nostalgia is a powerful thing; let it heal you.
And you know what? As it would turn out, it’s ay-okay that you’ve finished. You can come to terms with this unexpected ending and find peace in the new beginnings that it brings. Mostly because you’ve realized that in a month or two Netflix will upload a whole slew of new content and you’ll be in over your head in new seasons of long-forgotten favorite shows and fresh series to watch ’til daybreak.
