What are you doing this Saturday? We bet a lot of you thought for a second, but all that came up was binge-watching the new season of whatever Netflix show you’re addicted to. That’s okay — no judgment here. If that was your answer, though, we’ve got some posts you may find funny. Keep scrolling to read hilarious tweets that only those of us who are hardcore Netflix bingers will be able to relate to.
Are You Trying to Tell Me Something?
There should be no judgment in the Netflix realm, but every now and then, the Netflix elves have to check to make sure you are still there. This may be the most annoying thing about the service.
Most of us look at this little alert and think, “well the television is still on and I just skipped the intro so…yes, I am still watching!”
Take a Breather!
Your family may miss you! They understand that there are times where you may be absent. Some will even understand that it’s because you’re holed up in your house watching the next season of The Crown from start to finish.
But, when that’s all said and done, it might be good to get out and see the world even if it’s just your living room. Say hi — check in and make sure everyone is still alive. Then, return to your cave and start the next show.
This Must Be New Math
Sometimes a long movie takes too much attention and focus to follow. That’s why choosing to watch multiple episodes from one of your favorite shows can be a good compromise. The problem is that with Netflix, the next episode only takes 20 seconds to begin.
That’s not enough time for you to press the power button and move on with your day so, you may just end up watching a whole season without even realizing it.
You Like Me, You Really Like Me!
Despite how connected we all are, there’s no denying that there are times of isolation as well. So, having a service that cares if you’re still there can be very comforting for those that live alone. Keep asking if we’re still watching, Netflix — it shows you care!
But, can you do it when we haven’t just pushed the next episode button? That’s all we’re asking because clearly if we pushed that button, we’re still here!
Hallmark Is Very in the Know
Perusing greeting cards can be a long and painful process. You have to find one that says just the right thing. A card that has just the right sentiment. You don’t want something too cold and straightforward.
Perhaps something a little whimsical is the right way to go? Perfect! This card says just what it needs to say. Mom and Dad will for sure forgive my lack of communication now!
Here, Let Me Help You
There are so many movies to choose from on Netflix and plenty of suggestions the movie streaming service can offer. However, suggesting them is one thing. Choosing them for you is quite another.
But hey, maybe the computer knows what’s right for you. Or, perhaps this is the first step in the computer apocalypse. Either way, hope you enjoy the movie! Just saying you may want to be concerned.
It’s hard to find a partner that will go the extra mile to keep their word. Clearly, this relationship needs a little work as not only is she keeping an eye on where he’s going but also on what he’s doing.
Hopefully, he has a different Netflix account — otherwise, she may already be wise to his game. Maybe he should go ahead and jump on a treadmill or a stationary bike to get some miles logged in. You know, Netflix and ride!
Dodged That Bullet
Socializing is important, and we all know that, but there are just sometimes where we want to sit in our pajamas and binge-watch our favorite shows. It’s at the moment we are all secretly afraid that one of our friends will call us up and say, “Let’s grab a bite to eat.”
So, when a friend has something come up, there’s no denying that we all secretly jump for joy inside whilst saying, “Darn! Well, maybe next time!” Click — resume episode!
Just Five More Minutes
‘Netflix and chill’ used to mean something completely different! Now, it means what it says. You can come over, we can relax, and binge-watch our show.
Don’t expect anything else until at least four episodes in or even longer, depending on how good the show is. I promise we’ll have our alone time after we’ve watched all 16 episodes and have a year-long wait for the next season to come out!
It’s Not You, It’s Me
Breaking up is never easy, especially when you’re trying to do it while Netflix is fired up. This conversation should definitely have been done when both of you are paying attention although, if we’re being honest, that could be a really awesome show.
It could follow a group of friends that date each other and hang out in coffee houses. Wait, that’s already a show! But, the title is still something that could be worked with.
Devil on the Shoulder
That little voice in your head doesn’t always have your best interest in mind. In fact, sometimes there are competing voices, but when it comes to late-night binge sessions, one always outweighs the other.
Maybe if you don’t fight it, you’ll get to sleep faster. Just make sure you don’t turn anything on that you really want to watch. There’s plenty of that on Netflix!
We all try to multitask, but there are just some things you can’t manage to do at the same time. You can’t run and draw a straight line.
And you can’t pay attention to subtitles while you scroll through your Twitter feed or get to the next level of Candy Crush. It’s best not to disrupt the order of the universe and just put your devices down so, you can read what’s going on your other device.
Enough With the Recommendations
There’s a laundry list of recommendations on your Netflix home screen. Some are good, and then there are those that are not as helpful. There are many options that don’t exist but should definitely be considered for the next update.
And of course, we also have ‘Because You Watched This, Check These Out.” And even the suggestions that we should really discontinue watching for our own good. These are the lists most that binge-watchers stand behind.
Who Chooses What’s New?
There’s no accounting for taste, and sometimes that seems like the Netflix platform motto. Because this seems to be their process, there are a lot of questionable films and shows available for your viewing…pleasure?
Once you’ve come to terms with this factor, you may be willing to explore some of the less high-quality options and find out that they had it right. Taste and the idea of what’s good are all in the eye of the beholder.
How Did You Know?
One of the best things about Netflix is that it can give you suggestions on what it thinks you should or could be watching based on what you’ve chosen in the past. This saves time trying to scour through the plethora of choices (that only keeps getting bigger and bigger).
But at least let us finish watching a movie or show before you start lobbing suggestions at us. There is such a thing as option paralysis. You could be causing some serious mental harm, you know.
Things Just Got Dark
The “Are You Still Watching?” feature is one of the most contentious discussions for those that love them some Netflix. It always pops up at the most inopportune times. Apparently, for this person, it was the worst time.
Perhaps one of her friends should head over and make sure that this was just a sarcastic response and not a cry for help! Just kidding — she tweeted this so, she has to be okay unless the cats have evolved and can post online for her.
It Was a Long Day
There’s nothing like getting home, taking off your shoes, and plopping down to watch your shows. But after a long day, sometimes you just can’t keep your eyes open, and you wake up to the middle of a movie that you never intended to watch.
This makes for a long list of things that you technically watched but did not see any of. Pro tip: if you’re exhausted, just put on that series you’ve watched a million times, so you don’t miss anything important.
When it comes to superpowers, this might not be the most useful in the field. When sitting in that mansion, though, it might just be the special ability that everyone needs.
However, many of those that love to binge Netflix may have been bitten by that same radioactive spider. It’s obvious that this power is beginning to grow. Without question, this mutation is going to take over the universe someday.
Another Fine Film Suggestion Netflix!
Who doesn’t love a good bad movie? To find it on Netflix, however, you have to hunt through category after category. Having a one-stop-shop for these kinds of films would be so very helpful. Please, and thank you.
Then when you are feeling a little whimsical, you can just scroll down to that category and find the perfect ironic movie for your mood. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the worst-best film you could ever think of…
First Things First
Don’t you wish your devices would recognize if you have watched an episode from another one? Finding the episode you last watched would solve so many problems! And it would also keep Netflix from trying to get you to rewatch something you have already watched.
Nobody wants to watch the same show over and over again. Wait — that is the definition of binging. So maybe we do, but not back-to-back. You’re not always right, Netflix!
That’s One Way to Do It
It used to be that when you cleared out some shelves in the closet or made space for their toothbrush, you knew the relationship was serious. Nowadays, when someone shares their Netflix password, you can bet that the relationship is going somewhere.
But, if your significant other comes home with a new Netflix account of their own, make sure to pay close attention. It may be time for some relationship counseling.
Keep Your Suggestions to Yourself
It seems like Netflix can get a little antagonistic when it begins to suggest movies and shows you may like. But, why do you have to be so hateful? If you’re going to suggest a film, make sure that it’s not part three of a trilogy when you don’t even have either of the other two parts streaming.
That’s just mean! And as many of our mothers said, if you don’t have anything nice to suggest, don’t suggest anything at all!
Why Does the Show Keep Changing?
There are a lot of questions about the afterlife. Do we move on to another place? Does our spirit linger? Clearly, this person has put a lot of thought into it and came up with a pretty good plan.
Why not stick around to see if your show comes out with another season? Or, to mess with your loved ones as they sit down to enjoy that show you just couldn’t stand. Wouldn’t it be fun to wait around for the right moment and change the show while they’re in the midst of it?
Who Needs to Be an Adult Today Anyway?
It really sucks when life interrupts your binge session. You could try to multitask, but that never goes well. Maybe you can find a show that will help you with your homework. Whatever! You can get to those assignments when you’re done with this episode — maybe it can wait until you’ve watched two more episodes?
Oh well, guess it can all be done tomorrow. You just have to remember not to turn on the television when you wake up! It’ll be alright, right?
Truer Words Have Never Been Spoken Netflix!
Netflix accounts have some of the best tweets. They are sarcastic and witty, but sometimes they can also be a little too blunt. We all know we’re lying to ourselves! You don’t have to tell us, Netflix!
You don’t know us! We may be able to satisfy our binge-watching urges with just one more episode! Wait, what just happened? Okay, start the next episode now. Okay — you’re right, but we don’t have to like that you’re right.
Sounds Like Something We Would Watch
Sometimes having a lazy weekend is a good thing. It’s when it becomes an every weekend occurrence that you may need to reconsider your life choices. Perhaps you could just spend one day out of the weekend taking naps and watching Netflix.
Then, on the other day, you can spend some time with your loved ones. Or maybe just not nap! After all, the sleep you caught up on the day before should have given you enough energy for that Netflix marathon you’ve been planning.
There Is Always Tomorrow
You have a long list of things you want to get done, and you wake up jazzed to get the day started. Then, you turn on the TV and sit down with the remote. Surprisingly, nothing is getting done today. This seems to be a common occurrence when Netflix gets involved.
Maybe next time, you should hide the remote and unplug your smart home system so that you’ll actually get to the things that you want to get done. Or not — the choice is up to you!
Is There a Connection?
Who wishes that they could talk with the creators of the Netflix interface that sets up your suggestions? It would be an interesting conversation, especially with some of the options they give you.
Since you just watched Dark, it only makes sense that you would want to watch Mr. Fluffy. Perhaps the program could be a little more fine-tuned to give you a more appropriate suggestion — not like the one this poor guy got!
Time Works Different Now
You know you have a problem when you can’t even tell your significant other just how long you’ve been vegging out on the couch. When you refer to time in the amount of “Are You Still Watching” notifications that popped up, it may be time to pause the show, get up, and move around a bit.
Maybe take a little walk before getting back to your show. Or, even grab a bite to eat. When was the last time you even ate?
I Don’t Want to Grow Up!
There are thousands of families that share their Netflix. Still, when a young man or woman gets to be a certain age, they have to spread their wings and get their own account. This is just how nature — or the 21s century — works.
Not excited about having that coming-of-age conversation with the parents at all? Maybe they won’t notice if you just piggyback on their account for a while. Wait, the password’s been changed…Mom?!?!
Guilt Is a Powerful Motivator
You know you love your family when you’re willing to pay an extra two dollars for something that you don’t even use. But, even with that, it still seems a little inconsiderate to make you feel like you have no other choice.
But hey, what goes around comes around, right? So, you have to keep paying $15.99. They’ll thank you when they have a long weekend that they spend binge-watching all the seasons of Orange Is the New Black.
There Is No Accounting for Taste
There are just some things you can’t unsee, and what your loved ones and friends choose to watch is one of them. But, if you’re going to snoop, you need to know that they may be shaking their heads at your choices, too.
So, let’s make this a Netflix judgment-free zone, shall we? It will preserve relationships and make those holiday get-togethers a little more pleasant.
Order in the Court
There are just some things worth fighting for. Though your kids should be one of them, a close second would be that Netflix password. After all, you have taken the time to finely craft your ‘My List’ category before working your way through all 15 seasons of Supernatural.
Your spouse can have the Hulu password, but Netflix is rightly yours! The rest of the streaming services, well, that’s up to fate. May the odds be in your favor!
Even Hollywood Stars Know What’s Up
She’s not just a pretty face — she’s also a life coach. Motivation is her game, and she does that with sarcastic wit. If Anna Kendrick has to get out of her PJs and head out into the great outdoors well, then you should too!
Or you could stay in and stream one of her movies to see if she really knows what she’s talking about? Based on her awesome personality, we would say she certainly does!
This Man Is a Genius!
You sit down after a long night of fun, and you are shocked to find some weird show or movie on your ‘Continue to Watch’ list. What happened? You may have had a little too much to drink and ended up Netflixing your way to sleep. Though not as dangerous as texting an ex, this too can still have some horrible consequences.
Then again, having two profiles can also be great. You know that when you log in, there’s already a selection of choices on ‘Continue to Watch’ that will keep you entertained for hours.
