We’ve hit this nail on the head multiple times, but if you didn’t know, we’re all home way more than usual right now. While we’re sheltering in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of us have turned to binge watching. We’ve discovered new shows, gone back to old favorites, and hopped from platform to platform watching different episodes of various shows. Whatever your television binge style may be, you can now use a cool binge watching calculator to optimize your time. The calculator will suggest shows that will work for you, your time constraints, and your preferences.
Via CBR, the Binge-Watching Calculator created by Maciej Kowalski and Maria Kluziak gives you a simple prompt to begin. It asks how long your lockdown will be (feel free to estimate), how many hours a day you want to watch, your platform of choice, and what your favorite genre is. Once you plug all of that in, you’ll get recommendations of seasons of various shows that fit those parameters. The calculator pulls recs from Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Disney+.
For example, say you’re self-isolating for 15 more days, you have four hours a day to watch television, you love science fiction and fantasy, and have an HBO GO account. Well, it looks like you can watch the first six seasons of Game of Thrones (which honestly is great and then you can move on and ignore the last season).
Science fiction and fantasy not your jam? Don’t have four hours a day to binge something? Never fear. Say you only have one hour a day and you’d like a comedy on Netflix; the first three seasons of Atypical looks like it’ll be the perfect fit for you.
If you were feeling overwhelmed or stuck on what show to start while you’re home, this Binge Watching Calculator may be exactly what you need to get started to quarantine and chill. Binge away, my friends!
