I love streaming. At the low price of $8.00 a month you and your friends can share in the joys of cable television like HBO and Stars, but without having to sift through their line up to find the movie you want to watch. Now thanks to streams we can binge watch our favorite shows and movies to our heart’s content. Netflix has evolved over time and has now added original content to their website for us to enjoy.

So we find ourselves on this topic today. I’m playing the devil’s advocate here and say that this new sensation of binge watching isn’t a bad thing, but it is the future of television watching in the future.
Once again I would like to preface this with the statement that this is my own list. If you disagree with it, that is cool. I love a good debate so please add it in the comments.
