Finding something new and exciting to watch has become a momentous task, no matter how much effort streaming giants, cable TV networks, and The Big Three (CBS, NBC and ABC) put into creating grade-A content; it’s easy to stay within the confines of the binge comfort zone, watching aimlessly as an entire season of Friends unravels before your eyes.
