21 days, 2 hours, 5 minutes

The next time I contemplate starting a bad show on Netflix, I am going to check out the stats. Not the ratings… but how much time I will waste watching it. This website is addictive, depressing and amazing.

Here are five of the top contenders for most time I’ve waisted on a bad show:

Pretty Little Liars: After 5 days and 11 hours (6 seasons!) I still don’t know who A is!!!

Hart of Dixie: 2 days, 5 hours and 12 minutes lead to the worst series finale ever (not counting Roseanne). Not even Wade’s abs could save that ending.

Heartland: Doing my part to support Canadian drama but seriously, how much can one family go through? I saw a lot of drama and horses over 5 days and 20 hours.

Psych: 3 days, 14 hours and 43 minutes but I knew at 22 minutes in, that it was going to be bad. Really bad. I kept watching.

and probably the worst of them all – Army Wives: 4 days and 21 hours of total crap. A lot of bad things happened to the Heartland family but they have nothing on what went down at the army base!

As for great shows, it’s hard to make a list of my all-time favourites (because there has been so many good ones) but these come to mind as time not waisted:

  • Friday Night Lights
  • Six Feet Under
  • My So-Called Life
  • Dawson’s Creek
  • Parenthood
  • Gilmore Girls
  • The O.C.
  • Veronica Mars
  • Sex and The City / Entourage (same thing, amiright?)
  • 90210 (the original, obviously) and Gossip Girl!
  • Degrassi (the original, obviously)
  • Scandal (and its original, Felicity)
  • Mad Men
  • Roseanne (minus the last episode)
  • Golden Girls
  • Dexter (but only the first few seasons)
  • Breaking Bad (a bit of a roller coaster but the ending was the best)
  • Downton Abbey (it was late to join the party but I love it)
  • Amazing Race (don’t judge, it’s the only reality show I watch)
  • Project Runway (see above, I lied, I watch this too)
  • Bloodline and Nashville (I will support anything with Coach Taylor and Tami Taylor)
  • Criminal Minds / Law and Order SVU (aka the shows that will never end)
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • The Mindy Project
  • Homeland… The Walking Dead… House of Cards… The Good Wife (loosing my interest but I will stick with them)
  • Girls
  • The Following / The Killing / The Fall (I watched these back to back, all good but I think of them as one show)
  • Prison Break / Orange is the New Black 
  • Weeds
  • Cougar Town
  • About a Boy
  • Three’s Company
  • Fresh Price of Bel Air

How about you? Any bad shows your regret staying the course with? Or am I the only one who’ll suffer ’till the end? Any recommendations for shows I should watch?
