This week, Netflix debuted a new commercial which doubles as an ode to the television binge watching superfan.


Who knew Ricky Gervais of all people would ever understand the agonizing hardships of being a true fan who can't just watch a few episodes? The commercial (and its outtakes) features Gervais making awkwardly funny appearances in Netflix favorites like Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards. All of that is great Netflix, so how about removing that dumb "Are you still watching..." alert that interrupts you when you DARE watch more than few episodes of one season?

My next binge will be The Good Wife. I haven't really been into network TV shows for awhile, but people tell me that it's good.
