Obsessions come and go, sometimes with age and other times with surprise interventions that your family tricks you into attending. People obsess over objects, people, and books for a period of time until they eventually lose interest (hopefully). I have had plenty of obsessions over the year, and they have faded, even the Harry Potter movies that I just wait until they come out on DVD instead of standing in the cold in the middle of the night. Anyhoo, it has come to my attention that I may have developed a new thing to consume my time. That bittersweet drug is called Netflix. Not only do they deliver movies to your door, but now you can watch movies/television shows online. The summer has only increased my appetite for this service. I’m watching complete television series in a matter of weeks and rarely do I get tired. What’s worst is my friends are all hooked, too. One friend watched the entire series of LOST in 2 months. With 6 seasons of hour-long, 20-odd episodes each, this might actually require clinical help. I can stop, but I hope it dies down. BTW, have you heard of Futurama because I just finished the second season and I think it’s really good!
