Netflix has only been streaming since 2007, but we honestly can't even recall life B.N. (before Netflix). It's probably because we've subconsciously blocked from our minds the period of time when you actually had to spend a billion dollars on a boxed set of your favorite TV show just to have a good bingefest. Not to mention the fact that drawing the blinds and settling in to watch, like, 15 hours of TV in a row was not nearly as socially acceptable 10 years ago as it is now.
Speaking of bingeing, have you watched these series from beginning to end yet? Because if you haven't, you really should.
