Technology is turning us into binge-watching TV addicts.
Streaming TV services having whole seasons of shows like Breaking Bad, Arrested Development and House of Cards are causing viewers to watch hour after hour in one sitting. But binge-watching isn't really a new thing. Back in 1993, all 29 episodes of Twin Peaks were released in a six-tape package, they flew off the shelves and people spent hours watching one episode after the other. TV ratings company Nielsen can now measure binge-watching and they say viewers are streaming entire seasons at breakneck pace on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and other outlets.
