Self-restraint is most certainly a virtue, but no matter how much self control we have, it’s worthwhile to bear in mind that there’s always going to be that little devil on your shoulder telling you to stay up until 4 am with your eyes glued to the rosy glow of Netflix content, even if you have to be in work by 9 tomorrow morning.
Many shows out there are excellent, but there's a special place in our hearts for the ones that keep you hooked, destroying so many carefully planned nights out as they descend into one relentless slog in front of the telly.
Some particularly binge-watchable shows sucker you in with the promise of one quick episode before you get down to something productive, and before you know it you’ve burned through an entire show before you realise you've missed both your parent's birthdays, Christmas and the New Year.
Netflix plays a big part in this, with that damned auto-play feature letting the addictive and awesome content dissolve your brain into a joyous puddle of perpetual entertainment.
Gather your duvet and a mountain of Doritos. It's time to binge.
