It, TV, the digital thing the title of this post is referencing, is alive and louder than ever… says my social media friend, Kevin Dill!
His take below is worth mulling over if you’re any kind of consumptive watcher of the BIG screen in your house, not just a NetFlix crack addict.

How many minutes was each episode? (45 minutes).
How many episodes was each season? (20)
How many seasons does this show have? (12)
45 x 20 = 900 minutes
900 x 12 = 10,800 minutes (180 hours)
If you get 8 hours of sleep then that leaves 16 hours of awake time.
180 / 16 = 11.25 Days of your life you will never get back.
I forgot to mention to you the last question to her was this:
How many times have you gone through all the seasons? (3 times, she said)
