Welcome back to my random mind! What is happening this week?
Have you every found yourself with too many options? Do all these options tend to paralyze you into not picking anything at all?
That is what I feel like when it comes to television.
Ladies and Gents, I have television burnout.
Let me start from the beginning.
Over the summer, I came across many shows that were amazing. The summer has not always been kind to television viewers. Usually, the summer is full of bad reality, competition and burn off shows. Now the summer has become a treasure trove of good television mixed in with the bad. Either way, it is like a whole new season.
Just this past summer I got into many television shows while finding new shows to enjoy on Netflix and Hulu. Just as quickly as the summer season ended the fall season began. I wanted to be excited, but I couldn’t muster up any actual excitement.
I had to force myself to watch. That is when I realized what the problem was…Television Burn Out.
In the past television has been considered the lesser medium. If you end up on television, you are a minor star. Movies are where it is at. However, that has changed. Television has grown up and started attracting all types of genres (Zombies to Romantic Comedies: Television has it All!) which got more people watching.
More people are watching means better content (generally).
There is a lot of great content out there and not enough time to watch.
Television burnout ensues.
I have not even enjoyed any new shows. I am trying to keep up with the old ones and ones I started in the summer!
Is the television market oversaturated with shows? Why do I always feel like I cannot keep up with whatever is popular this season?
Should I even check out the new shows that have come out this season or do I wait and watch them with the summer shows?
Why do I care? OH! I can answer that one. I have always been fascinated by television especially seeing how the television industry has grown throughout the decades.
I don’t have a solution to my television burn out. Do you?
Leave a comment below if you feel the same way I do or if you have a solution to this first world problem!
Until next time, the randomness has ended. Hope you enjoyed!
