Sorry, I doubt very much if you have an addiction. Every so often I too treat myself to an expense that you would never normally find me spending money on. Mine is the largest Lemon Coolata that Dunkin' Donut has. It cost a whopping $5.00. I think that is a lot for just flavored crushed ice. For you it is entertainment that you really enjoy. Just like I really love those Coolatas. I do make sure I only have $5.00 to spare or I would go right back and get a second and third one. Lemon anything has to be my favorite flavor. I stay out of bakeries and only keep one lemon in the house are any one time. Otherwise I would be making lemon foods everyday. Finish the series and feel good about it. Enjoy it. It could be worse. You could be sitting on a bar stool and demanding the bartender put it on the TV there.

Not to worry Vit. If I want to justify paying for episodes I enjoy, I remind myself how expensive and addictive my life once was with cigarettes. I can by lots of episodes for what they used to cost me.

Let's Talk TV

And sadly now, it's over, replaced by some really strange women complaining about stuff.

Lordy, RW was a funny guy!
