It’s really easy today for people to be lured into binge-watching a whole TV series in few sittings and I am no exception. Last Sunday I happened to finish a very entertaining one. At first my plan was just to chill out 30 minutes or one hour with a random episode of the drama after some hard study, I ended up sitting at laptop for 10 continual hours. Which one did I watch? It’s a Korean courtroom drama called Witch at Court. I was mesmerized by the leading female character, who is a female prosecutor notorious for stopping at nothing to win in court. I wasn’t really into the actress’ previous performances but she made a significant breakthrough this time and made the character vivid and fascinating enough for a second season. :mrgreen:

Kooper,

What do you mean by "stopping at nothing to win in court" ?

Hi Michael, I just learned the phrase yesterday. It means willing to do anything to achieve what they want even if it's illegal or dishonest.

BTW, you got up so early!

I am so surprised!!! Kooper!! Ha! Even you will spend so much time for binge-watching!!! I like to watch TV series but I never do binge-watching!! Watching two episodes in a row is my limit! I simply feel watching too much at a time will ruin some fun. Ha.

It's kind of surprising to me too.'Binging watching' shouldn't have happened to Kooper. The TV series he mentioned must be very interesting though. It happened to me a few times, particularly when I watched Game of thrones.... Just couldn't help.
