Sorry, but if you don’t watch series, then maybe you need to wash your head because you are missing outttt!

So, what’s the big deal about series anyway?

1. The maddening suspense

Asides the suspense from unexpected scenes, there’s also the maddening feeling of having to wait in suspense for months or even years before a new season is released.

2. The plot twists

Series lovers live for the numerous plot twists. Just when you think James will finally tell Janet about the crush he’s had on her since Season One, a trick will appear from nowhere and clear him off the road. What next??

3. There’s no room for boredom

Can boredom compete with five Seasons and thirty-two episodes of your favourite show? Didn’t think so.

4. You have something to look forward to

Especially after one of those long days when your tired is completely tired. There’s just something about knowing at the end of it all, you have five episodes of awesomeness waiting for you to see.

5. There’s no pressure

Unlike movies which are mostly viewed at a go, series provide witj the choice of going at your own pace. If you like, you can watch all the seasons over a period of one year, nobody will beat you.

6. The dopamine thrills

That is the height of series-stanism! There’s just so much excitement and addictive way it keeps you glued to your screen. There should probably be a shirt that says “Beware: series addict“.
