Television is arguably once again in its golden age. Technological advances and bigger budgets have translated to stunning visuals, and the creative license given to screenwriters means that stories are now more compelling than ever.
Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have also revolutionized the industry by delivering one of the holy grails of customer satisfaction: instant gratification. Not to mention, with social networking websites like Twitter allowing for real-time discussions, television programs have gained cult followings that the previous generations seldom saw.
In other words, we are freakin’ spoiled.

couch potatos binge-watching television aficionados. Anna had streamed Marco Polo TWICE in under 48 hours, and I personally watched all six seasons of Sex and the City in a mere few weeks.
