So if you have a Netflix subscription then you know how it can be when you start a series and go on a Netflix binge. Then you are at a point where there is one episode left and then it is done and you are left feeling empty and alone. You aren’t alone, it is the beginning of Netflix depression.
I suffer from Netflix depression. When I first started streaming Netflix, I started the Walking Dead. I watched the entire first season and was hooked. Then I realized that I wanted more. Luckily, I only had to wait 2 weeks before the 2nd season premiered on AMC but I was sad.
Then I decided that I didn’t want Netflix anymore so I cancelled my subscription. Recently my son kept asking for Netflix because he loved some of the movies available. So I gave in and reupped my subscription.
So what was the first series I chose to watch. Sons of Anarchy. I binged watched that show I watched 53 episodes in 1 week and then at the end of season 4. Nothing! Nada! Zilch! Season 5 had yet to be released to Netflix. So here I am broken and sad and season 6 had already premiered on FX. So I’m a season behind trying to figure out where everything is on season 6. Lucklily it was on DVD so I was able to rent season 5 and catch up over a weekend.
So, here I am watching another series on Netflix. It is a Judd Apatow series from 2001 called Undeclared. I have 2 episodes left to watch. Two, that is it. The series wasn’t picked up for a second season. I could have finished it last night but I stopped myself because I know the feeling of emptiness I will have.
Breaking Bad, I want to watch this show, but I think I will wait til the final season is available on Netflix. I don’t want to get into it and then have to wait a year for the final season.
Lost, I hear this was a great series but I’m afraid to start it because of people always talking about it, I’m pretty sure I already know how the series ends. That isn’t ever fun.
Netflix Depression = First World Problems
So what feelings do you feel after coming to the end of a series on Netflix?
