Fact about me: I like Ninjago.
I KNOW SHOCKING RIGHT???
And since this show isn’t on TV on any specific time or channel, watching it is a semi-big deal. I’m sure you guys know at least one show like this; it’s fantastic, but you can never find or watch it.
So, imagine my delight when I find SIX SEASONS OF NINJAGO ON AMAZON PRIME. And my further delight when I have NOTHING TO DO FOR A WHOLE WEEKEND.
But how do you bingewatch right? I mean, you can’t just sit on the couch and watch your favorite show/movie in the whole world. That’s unheard of in my book.
Since I’m OBVIOUSLY the master at everything related to fandoms, I’ve come up with a guide for you normal people to have the best movie night ever and be the coolest bingewatcher on the block.
Setting is just as important as the show itself, because, umm, who wants to watch a show while being uncomfortable?? Nobody, that’s who. (wait what..?)
Your sobbing/squealing/uncontrollable laughter may annoy someone at some point, so you might want to be somewhere private-ish, or at least out of the way. It limits distractions a lot and irritates less people.
2. stuff to bring
- proper screen & listening devices, if needed
- comfy chair
- stuffed animals (don’t judge me)
- snacks (see below)
- a drink (see even more below)
- YOURSELF, READY FOR A GOOD TIME!
I know I’m supposed to be healthy and talk about the ‘low-fat, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic wheat-thins’ that I’m supposed to eat, but… I gotta confess, I’d rather just grab a plate of brownies.
But since I am advising you guys and don’t want to be responsible for unhealthiness, I suggest…
- a bagel with cream cheese (pretend it’s a donut)
- trail mix with dark chocolate
- the classic popcorn
You can also make a snack that has meaning in the show you’re watching. For instance, you could eat pineapple, watermelon, and coconut while watching Moana! (that actually sounds really good… mmm!)
or you know just ignore me and have cake.
No snack is complete without a good drink to accompany it. I LOVE water, so that’s my typical go-to, but anything that’s not *too* caffeinated or surgery is great. You don’t want to be bouncing off the walls the whole time 😛
Hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and apple cider are always good, no matter the weather 😉
Rule #1 of show-watching attire: bE cOmFoRtAbLEE. And I mean 100% com-fee. Jeans and a t-shirt? No way.
Now, pajama pants and fluffy socks??
Ok!! Now that you’re finished prepping, you can turn on Netflix/YouTube/whatever u use idk, cuddle up with your blanket, and watch a whole season of
Ninjago your show! Congrats on being a bingewatch pro, you’ve made this author proud.
Ok so maybe don’t bingewatch for five hours like me, that’s not very healthy (like brownies). Instead, how about you watch a movie with your family, or even your friends? And naturally you should let me hear about it in the comments 🙂
OH AND NINJAGO SEASON 8 COMES OUT THIS WEEK SO LETS FANGIRL
