The Retired Bloke

Bingeing on Boxsets

Curled up on the couch

Bingeing on a box set

Regular life is set on hold

Weight increasing ouch!


Feels like I’m addicted

One after another they come

Unable to turn the off switch

Regular life restricted


Characters become so real

Extended family members

See deep into their soul

Emotion you can feel 


Then end feels like a death

A gaping hole in life

Time to get back to reality

And finally catch my breath

    You seen all those shows? The Chase is everywhere! New progs, old progs, repeats, English version, USA, Australian,..... There's nothing else on telly except that, about 22 hours every day, it seems!

    So very true TRB, you can get hooked on these shows.
