What are you watching?

Sometimes, after a long and hard day at work there can be few things better than getting home and putting on a TV show or film.
Im sure for many of our readers it can be one of the best ways to unwind from a the realities of a stressful day at work. Am I right?
Which TV shows do you look forward to watching?
It’s well know that watching a series in the original version can be massively beneficial to improving your learning. Not only is it very useful, it’s often cheap, convenient and fun!
It doesn’t just have to be for English learning either. It’s a fantastic tip for students of any language! Something worth noting however, that it can be tricky to commit to this type of learning as when we watch TV, we sometimes want to relax and to switch-off and not think about learning.
Which is why SuperMick (that’s his actual name in the most remote parts of Kent, England, where the big-boss man is from) suggests choosing shorter programmes in length. You don’t have to focus for too long and therefore you will find it more enjoyable.
Thanks for the tip Mickey!

During episode #45, Lewis and Mickey discussed what it means ‘to binge’. An unfamiliar and peculiar word for many of you I’m sure. But what does it mean exactly?
‘To binge‘ is to indulge in any particular activity to an excessive level or amount. As Mickey mentioned during the pod, a person can binge on junk food, alcohol and even television.
To ‘binge-watch’ a T.V. show has been more relevant than ever during the coronavirus pandemic!
