My roommate got his own Netflix account a month or two ago. He asked me to recommend a few shows for him to binge-watch. I gave him a few suggestions, Arrow was one of them, and he started to watch it. He was starting with the pilot episode, while I was already ten episodes into the third season. Each season has twenty-three episodes so I had a bit of head start on him to say the least. I would follow his progress, asking him where he was in the show and what he thought was going to happen next. He was flying through it. I was only watching an episode every couple of days. Pretty soon he was done with the first season. Before I knew it he was done with the second season. Suddenly he was on the third season and steadily catching up to me. Now it’s a race, a Netflix race. I have three episodes to go in the third season and he’s fifteen episodes in. I think I’ll beat him this time thanks to my massive head start but I’m never challenging him to a Netflix race again. He’s too damn good at Netflix and chilling.
