How Many Hours of Your Life Are You Wasting on TV Binge-Watching?

There really is no better way to consume television than a good new-fashioned binge-watch. Personally, I like to save up a show for many, many seasons and then BANG IT ALL OUT IN ONE WEEKEND. I watched four seasons of Parks & Rec when I had my wisdom teeth out, and I swear that shit should be prescribed right along with the Vicodin. (Other favorite TV binge-watches have included Alias, LOST, and the first 10 seasons of Degrassi: TNG.)

Apparently, to watch all of Battlestar Galactica, it only takes two days and nine hours! Which is weird, because when I tried to marathon that sucker it felt like TWO LIFETIMES AND NINE MILLENNIA. (I'll finish you someday, bb.)

Speaking as someone who is currently enjoying laying on my couch in my comfy PJs, drinking good wine and watching a House marathon, I dare anyone to come up with a better way to spend your free time. I may order a pizza later, too.
