Log into Facebook, you have infinite scrolling. On your Netflix home screen, endless things to watch. Choose music on Spotify, there's too many on shuffle. Where, if at all, does it end?
When it comes to entertainment value, nobody will be upset over the uncountable options of TV shows and movies that we get to watch on multiple platforms. Back in the day, however, there were a handful of channels producing dramas and shows that the entire family could enjoy together. You remember Ityadi, right?
And today people have their individual Netflix subscriptions; password-protected and all. We are being spoon, nay, ladle-fed with episodes--at times of two very similar shows. There's guilt at work when you miss out on a show that everyone's talking about on their newsfeeds. And speaking of news, there are more news channels than actual news.
Press that big red button on your remote control. Log out. Live a life that isn't made out of pixels.
