Must Watch Box Sets

Netflix and chill

When it comes to taking some time out from everyday working life, it doesn't take a lot to put a smile on my face. You could say that I am easily pleased, because I love nothing more than switching off the computer and sticking on the latest television box set that I am watching at any particular moment in time. Right now I am playing catch up on The Gilmore Girls, I find it pretty hard to believe that I have waited this long to join the party, there has been so much hype about it over the years but I could never make it much further than the pilot episode.

I have to admit here that in those early series, I found it pretty hard to see why it was so popular, but as we move into the later years, I have been swept up into the Gilmore frenzy. When Rory graduates from Chilton and reads her Valedictorian speech, I could feel the tears prickling my eyes with pride, and as the warm happy tears dripped down my face I smiled, then it's the will they/wont they between Luke and Lorelai, when they actually got together I may have smiled from ear to ear and squealed rather more than necessary... But come on it's Luke and Lorelai!

Sometimes you just need a little bit of chill time at home, where you don't do a lot of anything, except  lose yourself in tv land and watch the trials and tribulations of a make believe family in a make believe world, just so you can forget all of your problems for a little while...

Box sets seem to have surpassed box office films in 2017, and I don't think that it is hard to work out why. A series gives you so much more time to relate and get to know the characters, they become a part of your own existence during the time you watch them develop and grow over a number of seasons, and if your anything like me then you cannot help but get emotionally involved and care about what happens to your favourite characters. 

Take Grey's Anatomy for instance, my longest ever love affair when it comes to a box set. I have laughed with them, and boy have I cried with them. There are too many examples to tell you about on the emotional rollercoaster that is Grey's, but all I can say is, if you have not hopped on the Grey's Anatomy train yet, forget whatever you are currently doing, flick on your TV and start the pilot episode RIGHT NOW.

As you can see from this post, I am a bit of a television junkie, and it is for that precise reason that I have recently upgraded my television to something that is worthy to enjoy my many love affairs on. I have looked at many insurance policies to cover this new purchase and finally settled on Chill Insurance.

Would you rather stay in with a good box set or head out for night out?
