I love a good series. And I really love being able to binge on a series which I often am able to do because I’m usually late to the game on the latest It Thing. This has happened with Harry Potter and then again with Twilight. By the time I caught on to the awesomeness of Harry Potter there were at least 5 or more books out and I was able to race through them before catching up and having to wait for the remaining books to be released like the rest of the world. If you want to know how nerdy I really am, I actually went to the midnight release event for the final Harry Potter at a Borders Bookstore. As an adult.
As for Twilight. I read all three books in a weekend. (Yes, I’ve also watched all the movies.)
This has also has happened with TV shows like Sex and the City. There have been several marathon days of watching SATC. I deem SATC marathon watching perfect for rainy and snowed in afternoons. (These afternoons occurred in my pre-mama days when I had, obviously, oodles of time to sit and watch episode after episode of SATC. What. A. Luxury. I had no idea.)
My latest “It Series” that I’ve latched onto isn’t either a book or a TV show, but a podcast. Serial. People of the internets are obsessed with this podcast and I finally decided to take a listen. Guess what? I am now one of the those obsessed people of the internets sharing with the few of you who maybe haven’t checked it out.
Let me tell you the degree of my new infatuation, in two days I’ve listened to 8 episodes and will be all caught up when I listen to the 9th episode sometime today. Keep in mind that I also have two small children which means that the storyline has really grabbed my attention. Although I have to say, popping in headphones and listening to a podcast is a perfect entertainment choice for mothers of infants that need to be rocked and nursed – why had I never thought of this before?
It’s good you guys. Check it out if you haven’t already. And if you have, what is your opinion?!
