It all starts when you discover a new show. You've seen the first few episodes and are hooked to the point where you've diligently watched every week (or binge-watched all it's seasons on Netflix). But then, it happens. You've watched the last available episode. After a few moments of denial, you look up when the next new episode is set to premiere. Then, suddenly, your worst nightmares are confirmed as you see the words 'Next Summer (Or Fall/Winter/Spring) 20xx.' Then it dawns on you that you've got to go on without new episodes for at least another three months. What will you do? No worries, I've got you covered:


Re-watch the entire series again

This is especially true for shows with a deep plot, be it mystery, political or drama. Sometimes, when we watch a show the first time through, in the awe of watching such an amazing show, we miss some important clues to future plot development or hints to what is really going on. Going through the show, no longer wondering what happens, can give it new perspective and get you to appreciate the show that much more.

Look up fan-made theories

After re-watching the series, you may have developed some of your own theories on what will happen. Naturally, you're curious about who else may be sharing these thoughts. As a result, you can look up forums where others are discussing what has happened with your show/and or what this could possibly mean for the next season. You can also bond on how hard this waiting period will be for you all.

Read the books

This one only applies to TV shows that were based off a book series (ex. "Game of Thrones", "Pretty Little Liars", the "Vampire Diaries", ect.) As is the same with movies, many of the on-screen adaptations stray from the original novels, but often times, they do stick close to the original plat. Kind of as a way to continue getting more from the series you love, try reading where it all started!

Try a new TV show

When you've gotten your fill of your favorite TV show, try starting up a new series! You never know how much you can enjoy it! For all you know, you could end up loving this series just as much. Plus, you may get yourself a a new favorite to watch between seasons of the show you love the most.

Watch the new season as soon as it premieres (Go Back to 1.)

At this point, your shows come back and is ready to take over your life for the next few months until it leaves you again for another few months. After watching everything until the last filmed episode, go back to tip 1 and repeat as followed. As you can tell, this has become a cycle and will continue (unless your show get's canceled or ends that is).


There you have it! Those were a few of my tips on what to do while you wait for the next season of your favorite show to premier. Although it isn't the end of the world, it can sure feel like it when you think about how long it will be until that next episode. Hopefully, these tips will help you cope. Happy watching!

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
